A great side for any barbecued meat. I find it easier to lift the onion slices from the grill by using 2 spatulas -- one on top and one underneath. It helps to keep the onions from separating. The onion slices must marinate for about 8 hours before grilling so plan ahead. The recipe comes from Southern Living.
