Fireball Pineapple RecipeFor this Fireball Pineapple you grill a whole pineapple over a rotisserie until it’s all caramelized and delicious. But first, you have to soak the pineapple in Fireball Whiskey for at least 2 hours… so you know it’s going to be good. This Fireball Pineapple recipes comes compliments of Greg and Kristina Gaardbo from Rockin Rodizio… and you gotta check these guys out. They have a mobile, Brazilian Grill and entertainment experience. They have skewers of meats spinning over hot coals, they have flames shooting up, and most importantly – they are cooking good food. It’s pretty easy, all you do is remove the pineapple skin – but leave the core. Then let it soak in Fireball Whiskey for at least 2 hours – rotating the pineapple every 30 minutes to make sure it soaks evenly. Then coat it with sugar and grill it for about 45 minutes – 1 hour. The only issue with this recipe is that you have to have a rotisserie setup on your grill. You can use any rotisserie-style grill setup, just hold the temps steady around 400-450. Fireball Pineapple makes for a great side – people love it and it just looks great rotating on the grill. And the flavor you get with the sugars and the whiskey over coals is hard to beat. Print
