Grilled Pineapple is one of those rare delicacies that add a lot to your BBQ. Tangy, sweet, and caramelized fruit is always a great addition to your meal.

4th of July weekend and after seeing this I'll be picking up a pineapple to add to the weekend BBQing. Thanks for the great idea!

Yum! Also super delicious if you just grill it and sprinkle on some cinnamon and cardamom :-)

More flavor, less dishes. Great idea!

I thought those where Batman emblems at first.

Yeah those are cool looking. The fourth video shows how to make those. Rotisserie plus grilling, mmm mmm good!

Great item to add to a BBQ meal. !

Looks like yummy and healthy :D

That looks really tasty; thanks!

On the subject of grilling pineapples, have you tried the Swineapple? A swineapple is a pineapple stuffed with ribs which is then covered with bacon.

I've seen a few variations of that crazy idea! It looks real tasty.
I want to try one with a pork loin in the middle, if I can ever find the 1 screw that makes my rotisserie do its thing.
