- Prep your pineapple for cooking by slicing off the top, bottom and skin of your. If large "eyes" are still in your pineapple, simply carve them out.
- Place the rotisserie rod through the pineapple. If using 2 or 3 pineapples, move the first into position, then thread the second one (and third if applicable). Leave an inch or more of space between the pineapples. If you have a removable top rack on your grill, take it off.
- Place the rotisserie bar into place (with the pineapple on it. Ignite your grill and set it to high heat.
- Make sure the rotisserie is spinning, then close the lid.
- Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. After 6-10 minutes of grilling, check your pineapple(s), glaze them well. Close the grill and wait another 10 minutes and repeat.
- Grills do differ, so check your pineapple every 10 minutes or so, adjust heat if necessary. Once you achieve the desired caramelization, carefully remove the rod and pineapples from the grill, slide off the pineapples, cut into rounds or chunks and serve immediately.

- No rotisserie rod?? No problem, you can cook your pineapple on foil and brush and turn as necessary, cook on indirect heat. You can also do this in rings.
