It's a quick set-up to grill direct on a raised grid with the Rig. Just drop the Rig on the Pit Boss' fire bowl and add a grid. The Rig has four positions for grid placement. The most popular grid position is the 20" Round Grid on top of the Rig. This puts the 20" grid approximately 6" above the fire bowl. Many Rig owners refer to this as the grill's "grilling sweet spot."
The 18" Round Stainless Grid is used at the three grid positions inside the Rig. The 18" Grid sits on the Rig Crossbars. The 18" grid diameter matches up perfectly to the fire bowl's 18" inside diameter - yielding full use of the grill's cooking area.
For smoking BBQ in the Pit Boss 24, the Adjustable Rig Combo efficiently handles the popular meats: ribs, brisket, pork butts, sausage and chicken on one or two grids.
The Pit Boss platesetter acts as the indirect piece. The platesetter can sit under the Rig or inside the Rig on the Crossbars. Whenever possible, we recommend setting the platesetter inside the Rig, especially on single grid cooks. This will improve airflow and allow you to remove the entire set up as one unit - a very cool move.
