Caramelized Brown Sugar Cinnamon BBQ Pineapple:

Caramelized Sugar BBQ Pineapple


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Prepare the pineapple by removing the outer skin and the tough core. Cut the pineapple into rings or spears, whichever you prefer.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and ground cinnamon until well combined.
  4. Brush the pineapple pieces with melted butter on all sides. This will help prevent sticking and add richness to the flavor.
  5. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over the pineapple, ensuring an even coating on each piece.
  6. Place the pineapple directly onto the grill. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the pineapple develops caramelized grill marks and becomes slightly tender.
  7. While the pineapple is grilling, mix the barbecue sauce with a teaspoon of brown sugar in a small saucepan. Heat the saucepan over low heat until the sugar dissolves and the sauce is warmed through.
  8. Once the pineapple is caramelized and tender, remove it from the grill and place it on a serving platter.
  9. Drizzle the warm barbecue sauce over the caramelized pineapple, ensuring each piece is coated with the sweet and tangy sauce.
  10. Serve the Caramelized Brown Sugar Cinnamon BBQ Pineapple immediately as a delightful side dish or as a topping for grilled meats like chicken or pork. It can also be served as a dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an indulgent treat.
