These are SO easy and really good. The hot sauce gives it an extra kick and cuts the sweetness. They can help with patience while the rest of the grilled feast comes together, but be warned, they go quickly!

You can cut the pineapple slices into wedges for easier handling, then just thread onto skewers before grilling!

I will admit that I was a bot skeptical when I read this recipe. The words hot sauce and pineapple just didn't seem like they should work. I added more honey that called for and substitued a Thai Sweet Red Pepper Chili sauce instead of the hot sauce. It made a really nice addition. I also added more honey than the recipe called for. After marinading t for about an hour these turned out to be the most amazing twist on pineapple that I have ever had. This made a great fruit even better. This will become a staple for me at grillouts Read More

This sauce was good but grilled pineapple is so good on it's own I don't feel like this sauce did that much for it besides adding fat and calories. Read More

I rated this 4 stars because I tried some of the pineapple while I was grilling, delicious! I do not mean to be rude but the idea for putting on vanilla ice cream really ruined it...at least for me. Please try it BEFORE you serve it to everyone that way. Personally, I think I would have been much better off serving it as is..it is REALLY delicious that way. I know though, in the end, we all have different taste buds. But I do urge folks to try it with ice cream before making that your dish, you may thank me. Read More

Canned pineapple works too! I just patted two cans of sliced pineapple (in juice, not syrup) dry before putting them in a ziploc with the marinade (I skipped the butter and used sriracha as my hot sauce, adding a little extra) and loved the spicy zip the sriracha brought to the party. Absolutely amazing with teriyaki marinated pork chops! Read More

Fresh pineapple is great on it's own but grill it and you really have a wonderful treat. I couldn't bring myself to add hot pepper sauce or salt so I added a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar instead. I also didn't have time to marinate this overnight and it was still really good. I served this with some toasted coconut and vanilla ice cream - YUM! Read More

Very simple and very good! We doubled the butter and hot sauce. Everyone at the barbeque raved about the flavor. We debated on 1/2-inch or 1-inch slices. After grilling, we realized that the 1-inch slices retained the juicy flavor more. Next time we will have to triple the recipe since the plate was empty in two minutes flat. Read More

I love this. I slice the pineapple lengthwise in 1 inch pieces so thatI can skip skewers. I also substitute cayenne for hot pepper sauce. Finally I use both the meat and the core - different textures but both tasty. Read More

Delicious! Left out the salt. I have also made this with balsamic vinegar instead of butter. Read More

Oh my what a treat. I didn't use the hot pepper sauce or salt and didn't miss either. Served this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and shredded fresh coconut. (I think a little rum caramel sauce would be awesome!) Read More

Beyond AWESOME! Okay so I found the addition of the hot sauce kind of strange but this really heightened the sweetness of the pineapple. This received un-ending raves at our family reunion picnic. The recipe has been passed on no doubt to all of our family. 5 stars are really not good enough for this recipe. Note for one batch we did add cinnamon sugar adn brown sugar to carmelize them on the grill. THis was even better. I think next time we will try soaking them in rum for the adults and see how that comes out. YUM!!:-) Read More
