Looking for some help on your best recipes please!

Thanks!

  • You can do almost any way, pineapple is pretty forgiving. 

    I usually sprinkle Dizzy Pig pineapple head or combine it with Jamaican Firewalk. (Makes it spicy...great on Hawaiian chicken sandwich pineapples, can brush with teriyaki at the end)

    you can wrap in bacon and brown sugar. 

    You can joetisserie them. Stick other fruits or pork inside. 

    Or soak them in rum, grill slices raised direct at 350. Just watch the flames. Serve over ice cream.

    I sprinkle cinnamon on it and heat it until it's warm and softens a little - about 20 minutes at 350 if you used pretty big chunks.  We eat it as a healthy dessert.

    I am a big plus one on the Dizzy Pineapple Head. Almost the best head you can get.

    These were brushed with rum and sprinkled with cinnamon. Turned out very good.

    DP Pineapple Head, and grill it......that's it.

    There were some guys making some stuffed pineapple at Eggtoberfest.  The line was a mile long, but it sure looked good.

    A little soy sauce will do wonders for pineapple on the grill.

    If I'm grilling tuna I normally will grill pineapple as a side. I prepare a marinade for the tuna consisting of 1 cup soy sauce, 1 cup local honey, and 1 tbsp mince ginger.
    I always drizzle a little of the marinade on the pineapple and use the remainder for the tuna.

    We like to do a grilled pineapple and roasted  jalapeño salsa with pickled red onions.  It’s great on tacos.  When we grill the pineapple just like most everyone else we use Dizzy Pig pineapple head, but also sprinkle on a little ancho chili powder.  Try it some time.
