Plantains will grill excellent, they are more suited to cooking than a banana is hence why a number of cultures use them as such.

Grilled melon like canteloupe and honeydew are also good grilled, but the flavor might not be for everyone since grilling it will change the taste to a degree.

I was just going to mention this! Grilled plantains are wonderful..

One of my favourite summer desserts is grilled fruit kebabs. Thread pineapple, strawberries, banana, peaches, and plums on skewers. Drizzle with lemon juice and grill. Serve with a vanilla honey yogurt for dipping.

I also like sliced pineapple marinated in a bit of teriyaki sauce and grilled. It's good served on veggie burgers, portabello "steaks" or just eaten as is!

this isn't exactly "grilled" but it is delicious!
When I was a kid we used to slit open a banana, stick a couple marshmallows and some chocolate chips in the center, then wrap it all in foil and stick that out on the grill or, better yet, in a campfire.

I bumped into this site the other day. This is only the dessert catagory:

http://www.barbecue-online.co.uk/bar...q_desserts.htm

The s'mores recipe (among others, like ribs dipped in bleu cheese) is making me hungry.

BuckyT, was it your post a while ago, asking about making a pork roast on the grill? Anyhew, there are some great-looking recipes here.

I'm gonna piss off some but grilling fruit is absurd. Just eat it. Grilling vegetables is also kind of lame unless they are on a kabob stick with lamb. That's my 2¢ worth
