I love stories like this: taking stuff I would normally throw away and making it useful:

Thsi should also work with other poultry, fish or pork.

Looks good, DM!

I've tried adding pineapple skin to my coals before, but if I remember right, I couldn't taste that much of a difference. The smoke smelled a little sweeter, but I don't remember any flavor imparting into the meat. I guess if you used pineapple planks like DM used though, you would be able to get more flavor.

Oops... :? I see where the article was about the planks now. My bad. :lol: I have seen people use the skin itself in coals before too, but I personally haven't had significant results with that.

Excellent-looking duck, Don! You could've doubled the pineapple planks and used them to make sandwiches! :lol:

What's in the ziplock bag? Are you selling your own pre-packaged products now?

Or did I just miss it?
