I'd read about the onion trick to attract people to BBQ stands, but didn't believe it. Then once on a camping trip, we'd had the smoker going for a couple days with seemingly no notice from the other folks at the campground. On the third day, I remembered the onion thing so I cut one in half and tossed it in the coals. You'd have thought we were handing out free money, people were stopping by every few minutes to see what we were cooking. The whole campground smelled incredible.
By the way, you have a beautiful dog. You may want to check with your vet before giving her any more rib bones.
