Bacon Wrapped Pineapple With Burnt Finger Smokey Kansas City Spicy Honey Glaze
This is a crowd favorite created by none other than 2015 Food Network Chopped Grill Master Champion Stan Hays of County Line Smokers. Who doesn’t like bacon and pineapple then glazed with some spicy sweetness?
1 Whole Pineapple
1 Package thick sliced low sodium bacon
1 bottle honey
1 bottle Smokey Kansas City Spicy BBQ Sauce from Burnt Finger BBQ
1 Package Oakridge BBQ Dominator Sweet Rub
OPTION: Add grilled jalapenos or cerrano chili strips to the inside of the bacon when wrapping for an extra Kick!
Core the pineapple and cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks. Cut bacon in half. Dust the pineapple chunks with the Oakridge BBQ Dominator sweet rub. Use a half piece of bacon wrap it around the pineapple chunks and use a tooth pick to hold it in place. Dust the outside of the bacon wrapped pineapple chunks with Oakridge BBQ Dominator Sweet seasoning. Put in fridge while you make the glaze.
For tailgating, use a foil loaf pan to heat up one cup of the Smokey Kansas City Spicy BBQ sauce from Burnt Finger BBQ with two tablespoons of honey. This will be the glaze applied to the bacon wrapped pineapple chunks at the end of grilling.
Set up your grill for direct grilling over medium high heat. Or grill indirect over high heat to make sure the bacon gets crispy. Grill the pineapple chunks until the bacon is crispy on the outside and finish by glazing them with the Smokey Kansas City Spicy Honey glaze.
