Rotisserie Grilled Pinapple

Rotisserie Grilled Pineapple

This Rotisserie Grilled Pineapple recipe takes grilling pineapple from good to great. It’s an easy, healthy, and impressive dessert that is juicy and flavorful.

This dish was created for SABER Grills by Colleen Kennedy of Souffle Bombay. Bon appétit!

I am a huge fan of cooked fruit – in crumbles, in pies, and in something as simple as compotes. I also enjoy grilling fruits. If you have a rotisserie attachment for your grill, you’re going to want this simple and delicious dessert for the summer. It will be a showstopper at a dinner party or BBQ.

If you don’t own a rotisserie, you need to go out and grab one. You’ll thank me later!

I have grilled pineapples before to accompany Hawaiian BBQ chicken, rice dishes, and for dessert paired with ice cream or just on its own (it’s THAT good). It’s made even better when you use a rotisserie to grill it – glazing it lovingly while it cooks and transforming it from good to seriously great!

Rotisserie Grilled Pineapple

Slapping slices of pineapple on the grill gets you some nice char marks, however it can get a little dried out or rubbery. When you choose to take your time and let the rotisserie do the work, the Rotisserie Grilled Pineapple comes out warm, moist, and caramelized. Seriously, you may find yourself eating a whole pineapple hot off the grill in no time. Who cares about the juice running down your chin when it is just so delicious that you can’t stop yourself?? Not this girl 🙂

I made a simple glaze for the pineapple and I did add a splash of an excellent Rye I had on hand to it. You can choose to add a splash of whiskey, bourbon or even rum to your glaze or choose to make it alcohol-free. The great thing about a rotisserie is that it is big enough to fit 2-3 pineapples, so you can do one for the kids and one for the adults.

Rotisserie Grilled Pinepple - So good!

Take a look at SABER’s Rotisserie Kit. I love the case it comes in to keep everything neat and tidy until you need it. It also comes with the stainless steel bar, not pictured. This is such a quality kit, heavy and very well made.

Rotisseries can be used for more than just meat. Play around with one and you will soon find a new way to grill with delicious results!

Rotisserie Brown Sugar & Boubon Glazed Pineapple


  • 1-2 fresh pineapples
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of cardamom
  • A couple of drops of vanilla
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Rye, Whiskey or Bourbon


  • Slice the top, bottom and skin off of your pineapple. If large "eyes" are still in your pineapple, simply carve them out.
  • Place the rotisserie rod through the pineapple. If using 2 pineapples, move the first into position, then thread the second one. Leave an inch or more of space between the pineapples. If you have a removable top rack on your grill, remove it.
  • Place the pineapple(s) that are on the rotisserie bar into place. 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 vary, so check your pineapple every 10 minutes, 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. You want the pineapple to be warm.
