I did Grilled Pineapple at work today using the recipe from "How To Grill". I should have bought two pineapples. Everbody loved it. The only problem was that I cut it into 1/4" thick pieces, they were breaking apart as I handled them. Next time, I'll cut them 1/2" thick.
Thanks for the great books Steven!

Oh man, I made some yesterday too. LOVED IT. But I made the same mistake and cut them too thin. Next time I cut them to about 1/2".

I've grilled pineapple several times and have loved it each time. I usually do spears or chunks (skewered) because it's quicker for me to clean the fruit that way.

Here's a quick glaze I created that really turned out well. The Tabasco bite goes great with the sweet fruit, IMO:

    4 tbs butter
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup orange juice
    Tabasco (or other pepper sauce) to taste
    dash salt
    dash pepper


Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the brown sugar and orage juice and stir until smooth and the sugar is melted. Add the salt, pepper, and Tabasco and reduce until it's a thick consistency, about 1/3 to 1/2 cup. Adjust the salt, pepper, and Tabasco. Remove from the heat, let cool, and pour over pineapple pieces in a bowl, coating the pineapple well.Grill over medium heat until the pineapple is browned on all sides, turning occasionally.

I served it with Vanilla Ice cream and the leftover glaze.

Tried that this evening and had a few problems. I burned the first few pieces of cake because the grill was too hot. :oops: I also had to use rum as I didn't have tequilla. Oh well. Gives me an excuse to try again, doesn't it?

I had a few slices of pineapple left over after my grilled pineapple upside down cake and thought, I'll toss em on the grill and see what happens. I grilled them over direct heat about 2 minutes on each side then brushed them with the butter/brown sugar mixture I used for the cake and grilled them another 2 minutes on each side....They tasted phenomenal and were a perfect compliment to the Memphis style ribs I smoked. I took pics to post but they were mysteriously deleted from my digital camera :x

I will be grilling more soon and pics will follow!!!
