Cade here and I used to believe that Tucanos made the best grilled pineapple so I always wanted to know how to make Tucans grilled pineapple. And truth be told, they do make some pretty delicious pineapple, in fact, it’s awesome, but this one is certainly the winner. In fact with the brown sugar butter could it really be anything but amazing?

Tucanos Grilled Pineapple

Butter, mmmmmmmmm. Alright, I absolutely agree that it’s a little wrong to slather a fresh, delicious on it’s own fruit with butter, but let’s be honest no one is complaining. Anyway, we go to Tucanos every year for my birthday (we actually go to Texas Roadhouse every year for Carrian’s too. It may not be our favorite in Utah but both are traditions).  We usually go with our good friends, Dallin and Savannah. We introduced them back on this post for Citrus Lime Tilapia with Honey Balsamic drizzle. YUM.

Anyway, that Tucanos grilled pineapple is pretty good, but it was definitely time to crack out the grill and make our own. Summer is not our only grilling time, no we are year rounders. Even when it’s snowing we will run back and forth to the grill. And by we, I mean me. Carrian doesn’t go out in the snow. We love that smoky delicious flavor that comes from a grill.

Brown Sugar Grilled Pineapple

Like I said, the ingredient list is simple, basic and almost ridiculous with how easy it is. How to make grilled pineapple with brown sugar starts out with your simple list. Brown sugar, melted butter, and pineapple.

Do You Core Pineapple

By the way, we don’t core our pineapple when we grill it. It makes it a little more firm and easier to grill when you leave the core in.

How to Make Brazilian Grilled Pineapple

Mix the butter and brown sugar together, grill the pineapple on a medium high flame, turning once until it is fragrant, and beginning to show grill marks, remove and then immediately brush each side with with the butter mixture. Fall in love!

 

Leave the core in your pineapple to make for easier grilling on the bbq! ohsweetbasil.com

 

How to Serve Grilled Pineapple

Grilled pineapple can be served as a side or as a dessert. Especially if you make this brown sugar grilled pineapple sundae. Try serving your pineapple next to a smoky grilled meat and the pineapple with it’s juicy sweetness will add a nice contrast to the meal.
