Fireball Whiskey Grilled Pineapple Recipe Ingredients
- 2 Pineapples, whole
- 1/2 bottle Fireball whiskey
- 1 cup Raw sugar
- 1 cup Brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground Cinnamon
Carving Your Pineapple
This grilled pineapple recipe is quick and easy. To get started, clean the pineapples. First remove the top and bottom, so you can easily hold them on the cutting board. Then cut off the peel right behind the “eyes”. Clean up any details left after the end.
Using you knife, carve a crosshatch pattern into the pineapple, similar to what you would do on a ham. Next, place the fruit in a ziplock bag or other suitable food container, and pour in at least half a bottle of Fireball whiskey. Place in the fridge for about 2 hours, making a quarter turn every 30 minutes to make sure the whiskey soaks in to the entirety of the pineapples.
Seasoning Your Grilled Pineapple
Next up, time to sugar coat these bad boys. Mix the raw sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon and cover the pineapple with it, getting as much of it to stick on the fruit. Now simply skewer the pineapple through its core, and move it over to the rotisserie!
Grilling Your Pineapple
Cook the pineapple on the rotisserie over a medium fire. The cook takes about 1 hour. Halfway through sprinkle with more of the sugar mixture. When the outside of the fruit becomes golden brown, you’ll know it is ready!
