Pig Shot Question

Trying pig shots for the first time.  When cooking do you put them directly on the grid or do you put them on a pan?

    I did them raised, indirect at 350 and they were good but I'm not saying that's the best way.  I find anything with bacon seems to flare up too much when I go direct.

    I did them raised direct, @350ish until the bacon got crispy.

    I have gone both direct and indirect and I find the indirect version has better texture-same with ABT's.  Just an opinion...

    Thanks all.  I will be putting them on right after taking off ribs so I will leave the plate setter on with the drip pan on it and put the pig shots right on the grid.
