I have, but not cooked directly on the coals.

The thing with skirt steak is, it's tough.

You need to marinate it with citric acid (I use 1 lime/lb) for at least an hour at room temp,
to break down the toughness.
Similar to Alston's method, just not right on the coals; Grilled quickly(high heat), and sliced on the bias (as suggested), it gets quite tender this way.
I also put some cumin in with the lime, and make fajitas out of it. (grilled onions and red/green/yellow peppers)
