9. At the BBQ, clean your grill with an onion
Take a large onion, chop it in half, and turn up the heat. Rub the onion on the grate -- it’ll loosen grime, smell delicious, give a little onion kick to your meat, and provide slight bacterial disinfectant besides.
10. Spiral cut your hotdogs
It cooks them perfectly, and provides neat little pockets for condiments. Who says you can’t teach an old hotdog new tricks? Spiral cutting also ensures the meat cooks evenly to perfection, so you don’t have to waffle about making sure you’re not moments away from giving friends food poisoning.
