Lots of new toys to play with today. New gasket, new iron grill, MickeyT's fire ring. Got a butt on to take down to the in-laws tomorrow.[p]As I was getting things together this morning I was thinking back on all the little tips, tricks and what have you I've learned from y'all and started wondering: "Does everyone still use all the tricks they've learned here or do they just use the newest?" For example, last summer we all seemed agog about throwing an onion on the coals but you never seem to hear anyone doing that anymore. Buttermilk seems the latest craze. Wonder what the next one will be? (I DID throw an onion on -- grin!)[p]Kelly Keefe

    Kelly Keefe,
    FWIW, I always toss an onion, quartered, onto the coals when I roast chicken or turkey. Everything tastes great, of course, and it drives the neighbors wild. I use buttermilk (I keep a container of powdered buttermilk in the fridge for convenience) in Chef RDs Wings, but haven't tried it on anything else...yet.

    I find yogurt even more convenient than dried buttermilk. (And tangier!)

    Kelly Keefe, I also do this with whole garlic cloves.[p]Marv
