Default how to smoke your own?

Okay, I did a search but couldn't find anything...

My two local HBS don't currently stock peated malt. On Tuesday, my partner and I will be brewing either a Peppermint Pale Ale (I had Whitbread with some mint leaves in it and thought it was awesome, even modified my recipe a little to be closer to the taste of Whitbread), or a peated Scotch Heavy, based on whether or not he likes the minty beer when I give him a taste.

If we go with the Scotch Heavy, we could always skip the peated malt, or else smoke some ourselves (he has some peat moss and a grill). Ordering it online isn't an option if we want it for Tuesday. Though, if we wait a few weeks, we can either order it, or get it from Perfect Brewing, which is right down the street from me and said they will have a new distributor for it in a few weeks.

But anyway, our thought on smoking was to put the grain (we're using American 2-row - I presume you can use any base malt) in a pan on the grill. We'll burn some wood chips and some peat moss in the bottom of the grill and then keep the top on, with the vents closed. Does anyone have more experience with smoking their own grains and have a better suggestion, or know about how long we should smoke them for?
