Ingredients
  • 1 ​ripe pineapple
  • 1/4 cup ​melted butter
  • ​1/4 cup ​maple syrup
  • ​1/4 cup ​brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • A little vegetable oil to oil the grill
Instructions
  1. ​Start up your grill and bring it up to about 400 to 425 °F.

  2. ​Cut off the top of the pineapple.

  3. ​Cut off the bottom of the pineapple.

  4. ​Stand the pineapple on it's cut base, and start slicing strips of the peel with a sharp knife from the top to the bottom.

  5. ​Keep rotating the pineapple and cutting strips until you've removed all of the peel.

  6. ​With the pineapple still standing on the cut base, cut down the centre, length wise.

  7. ​Turn the pineapple 90 degrees and cut down the pineapple again creating a cross. You should now have 4 equal quarters cut.

  8. ​Cut the inside edge of each quarter to remove the pineapple core.

  9. ​Cut each quarter length-wise into 2 or 3 long pieces, depending on the size of your pineapple. These shouldn't be too thin, so they don't break on the grill.

  10. ​In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon.

  11. ​Oil the grill (to prevent the food from sticking to the grill)

  12. ​Place the pineapple slices on the grill.

  13. ​Brush the butter and maple syrup mix glaze over the slices and turn them over with tongs.

  14. ​Brush the other side of the slices and close the lid.

  15. ​Grill the pineapple slices for about 3 to 4 minutes.

  16. ​Open the BBQ lid and turn the slices over. Brush them with the glaze again.

  17. ​Close the BBQ lid and continue to grill the pineapple slices for another 3 to 4 minutes.

  18. ​Open the BBQ lid and turn the slices over. Brush them with the glaze one last time.

  19. ​Close the BBQ lid and continue to grill the pineapple slices for 3 more minutes.

  20. ​Open the BBQ lid and remove the pineapple slices onto a serving dish. Enjoy them hot with some ice cream or on their own.

Recipe Notes
Be extra cautious with your knife because the pineapple might be a bit slippery.
