I was thinking about grilling chicken leg-quarters with sliced pineapples on top with toothpicks. Has anyone been there, done that? I was wondering if the skin will be to moist. thanks in advance...

    I've grilled slices of pineapple on the extender above wings that turn out pretty good.... and regular grilled pineapple is excellent.

    Happy Trails
