Grilling fruit?

When grilling fruit like pineapple or peaches, is it best to go direct or indirect?  Any other tips?

    I go direct. With the grid at the gasket line and lump below the fire bowl not fire ring.

    Grill winter pears. They are more firm and less likely to turn to mush

    Definitely direct.  I usually soak in rum and pineapple head first.

    Direct......pineapple with some Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head is awesome!!

    Peaches, pears, etc it's all good.

    If you have a salt block or lava rock, try banana slices and top them with a halved donut hole.

    Try soaking in a little brandy before putting on the pineapple head.

  • Direct. Make sure your grate is oiled so nothing sticks.
