  1. Peel the pineapple and, leaving it whole, cut out the center core. Slice into 8 rings, and place them in a shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix together the rum, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Pour marinade over the pineapple, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour, or overnight.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat. Lightly oil grate.
  3. Grill pineapple rings 15 minutes, turning once, or until outside is dry and char marked. Serve with remaining marinade.

I sprinkled the dry spices on the pineapple, drank the rum, and called it a day. (wink wink)

Not as good as I had hoped. Although the pineapple was sweet and I followed the recipe exactly, it was disappointing. It is similar to Bananas Foster, but not as good.

Easy and everyone was impressed. I used orange juice instead of rum and 1 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the others because it was all I had. Delicious.

Oooh good! I'll be making this again. I marinated the pineapple in a ziplock bag in the fridge and "grilled" it in the oven. Delicious, and good with ice cream.

Made this twice now. Oddly enough the pineapple that looked the most burnt tasted the best! The first time I actually dropped the cloves for more cinnamon and used dark rum but only because I d...

Delicious!!! I left out the rum - as I was serving it to my children. Instead I substituted some fruit punch and only used brown sugar and cinnamon. Fantastic! Super seet and super juicy!

This was excellent. All I had in the pantry was Myers Original Dark rum so I used that and boy howdy was this ever good. The rum was not to strong after cooking and it had a nice carmelized gla...

I omitted the rum because I didn't have any and grilled it on my George Foreman grill at 400F. (my grill has temp control) I served it with a big scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. Yum!

gooo-oood! i didn't marinate it, just fried the spices up in a saucepan with canned, cubed pineapple (omitting the rum and just using a little juice from the can) and served it over a spinach s...

We followed the recipe, and it turned out delicious! Put over ice cream, poured additional rum on the ice cream and ate it all. Yummy!
