Grilling Pineapple

I've got a fresh pineapple and plan to grill it.

From what I've read so far, it seems like most instructions call for brushing some sort of glaze, sugar or honey on before grilling.

Has anyone done grilled pineapple "without" adding anything. I'm thinking there are enough natural sugars that it doesn't need the extra so was just going to brush with some oil.

Would appreciate any thoughts on this. Also, tips for grilling - trying to decide between rings or skewered spears.

Thanks in advance.

K'Sally, I'd just brush a little olive or canola oil on it. If you want it a little tangy, maybe a dusting of chili powder. Otherwise, just oil. Grilled pineapple is delish!

All I do is put a light coat of oil on the grill, then the pineapple. Same goes for bananas and stone fruits. Took a grilling class recently and grilled fruit was on the menu for dessert and that's how they did it, too. Then we made a dangerously decadent rum butterscotch topping which we served with our grilled fruit and a little vanilla ice cream. YUM!

Miss Sally...

I've grilled pineapple with just about every sweetner imaginable. Honey, brown sugar, raw sugar, syrup, etc. etc. and every combination thereof.
For me, plain unadulterated pineapple is best! If it makes ya happy to brush with a neutral flavored oil...go for it. Mostly have fun and.........


Enjoy!

Thanks for the feedback.

I'm going to do it au natural and get some really good grill marks while I'm at it. Should be good along with the pork kabobs.

Does anybody recommend using a grill vegetable tray? I have been toying with purchasing one but have not noticed any mention of anybody using one.
