'Tis the season ... so be sure to see our Holiday Entertaining Recipes for some terrific ideas. And, it’s not too early to start thinking about our Country Christmas menu for any of your holiday meals! For something different, how about mixing it up with our Light Southern Meal with Grilled Catfish and Watermelon Salsa! Happy Holidays!
Im no expert here, but i would say yes, you want to cook over the plate setter while cooking indirect. You are going to get a lot of heat coming up around in the open spots and these spots will cook, or scorch a lot quicker. If you have some ribs that are over hanging, I think moving your drip pan to cover some of the exposed areas will help this issue. Anything overhanging will just be cooked as direct. Hope that helped.
