Grilling bacon-wrapped pineapple is a delicious marriage of sweet, smoky, and salty flavors. We've amped the flavor even more with a brush of spiced brown sugar maple glaze in this recipe. The bacon is slightly precooked before wrapping the pineapple chunks. This, and finishing to cook the bacon on a layer of foil, helps the bacon become crisp and prevents flame flare-ups from excess grease. The final result is crispy sugared bacon wrapped around the juicy, tart and sweet pineapple. Yum! If you're looking for an easy and flavorful appetizer for your next BBQ, give these a try.
