Grilled Pineapple - Second time around

Had to try this again with a few changes

First - I picked out the ripest pineapple I could find. Two looked the same in terms of being yellow rather than green and I chose the one with the sweetest smell.

Skinned it this time

Removing the eyes diagonally

Rubbed with salt - I don't know why - I saw a friend do it

Rinse well and covered with brown sugar and Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head

Took out the fire ring on my small and grilled close to the lump

Caramelizing the surface

Put the fire ring in, and platesetter to keep the pineapple warm while having some gumbo

I'm picking up some vanilla ice cream for left over grilled pineapple tomorrow. Going for another slice - crisp on the outside and sweet all over.

    Man, does that look good!!
  • Yummy!! Looks delicious! I like the idea of adding brown sugar. It will be over the top with vanilla ice cream. :)

  • Looks real pretty, prettier than mine. I just cut it down till the eyes are gone. When I did it I covered it with cinnamon sugar before putting it on the grill.

    You have to bring that to the Texas Fest.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • Dang Frank, I have to learn how to do that. Looks fantastic.

  • That looks really really GOOD
