Updated: Mar 25, 2020

Pineapple & Pork is a marriage made in Hog Heaven. It's got it all--sweet, savory, salty and tropical--so much flavor y'all be fightin' over the last one--so take my advice and make a heapin' batch of this sensational summertime grilled treat.

Porky Pineapple

Jason Smith, FNS

Serves 6


1-whole pineapple, peeled, cored

12-strips bacon

½-cup brown sugar

¼-tsp cayenne pepper

½-tsp onion powder


· Preheat oven to 400°F.

· Cut peeled and cored pineapple into 12 spears.

· In a small bowl mix the sugar, cayenne and onion powder.

· Rub the pineapple with half the mix.

· Starting at one end of pineapple spear wrap one strip of bacon around it.

· Repeat until all is wrapped.

· Place on a foil lined baking sheet, grease foil real good.

· Sprinkle the rest of the rub over bacon.

· Place in oven and bake until bacon is cooked through about 25 mins.

· Heat up grill to 500°F, place each spear on frill for 2 mins per side, just enough to get the great grill marks and a little smoky flavor.

Tip: This can be made with any sturdy fruit.
