  1. Cut the zucchini and yellow squash lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Arrange the slices on a platter or in a baking dish and sprinkle both sides with the garlic, oregano, mint, hot pepper flakes, and lots of salt and pepper. Drizzle 2 tablespoons oil over them, turning the slices several times to coat both sides. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high. If using a vegetable grate, preheat it as well. If using a gas grill, place the wood chips, if desired, in the smoker box or in a smoker pouch and preheat until you see smoke.
  3. When ready to cook, if using a charcoal grill, toss the wood chips, if desired, on the coals. Arrange the zucchini and yellow squash slices on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned on both sides, 4 to 6 minutes per side, rotating the slices 90 degrees after 2 minutes on each side to create an attractive crosshatch of grill marks.
  4. Transfer to a platter. Drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil over the zucchini and yellow squash and garnish with lemon wedges, if using. Serve at once.
