April Showers bringing May Flowers? No problem. Bring the smoke with these indoor grilling tips!

April is notorious for showers even though the temps are starting to rise. If you are holding off on planning a cookout until the weather clears, there's no need to.

Wipe your indoor grill down with a small amount of olive oil.  Top meat with onion & garlic coconut oil.

If you are not quite ready to go under the knife (or needle), keep reading!
