Do you ever want to hang meats and vegetables but still looking to add grill marks to lobster, steak, and other smoked sides? Pit Barrel created the Hinged Grate just for you! One of the best parts of the Pit Barrel cooker is the incredible volume. Take advantage of every inch of that capacity by hanging and grilling at the same time. One side is closed like a traditional grilling grate, for grilling burgers, seafood, and steaks. The other side is open, allowing you to hang your favorite cuts of meat such as ribs, pork butt, or other vegetables. Using one side for grilling and the other side for hanging gives you the best of both worlds.
