Stir first 4 ingredients in small bowl until sugar dissolves. Thread pineapple pieces onto 6 skewers, dividing equally. (Tequila mixture and pineapple skewers can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover separately and chill.)

Prepare grill (medium heat). Grill pineapple until brown, basting with tequila mixture and turning occasionally, about 10 minutes total. Remove pineapple from skewers; serve hot or warm.

I love grilled pineapple! Since the pineapple has alot of juice, all I do is add brown sugar on top and grill it. It gets nice and carmelized.

A great dessert with grilled pineapple is to

1. Soften some premium vanilla ice cream and add chopped crystallized ginger to it. Allow to firm up again.

2. grill pineapple with some melted butter and brown sugar and a pinch of powdered ginger

3. Serve ice cream over the pineapple.
