Grilling This Weekend? Here Are Some Not-So-Helpful Tips.

Have you ever cleaned your grill with an onion?  Me neither!  A top grilling tip is to cut the onion in half and use the flat side to scrub and clean the grill instead of using a scraper. Onion lovers are high-fiving on that idea.  But wouldn't it make you cry?
