A pork stuffed pineapple wrapped in bacon and slow smoked. How can this not be a new summer tradition. We've got sweet, spicy and baconeeee. Yes, that's a new word.
- 1 Pineapple
- Chorizo…Pulled Pork…Pork Tenderloin…Pulled Chicken (Your choice of meat)
- 3 TBS Stubbs Texas Sriracha Anytime Sauce
- 1 lb bacon (Thick Cut)
- 2 TBS Stubbs Pork Spice Rub
Set up your grill for indirect heat. We’re shooting for a grill temp of about 275 degrees. Add a few apple wood chunks or 3 slices of the pineapple skin to the coals for smoke.
Using a sharp knife, remove the top and bottom of the pineapple. Core the pineapple and trim the exterior, making sure to remove all of the pineapple “skin”. Sprinkle the inside and outside of the pineapple with your favorite Stubbs BBQ Rub. Stuff your favorite meat inside the cavity of the pineapple. I went with a spicy chorizo that goes great with the sweet pineapple. Sweet, salty and spicy is a great combo! Pork Tenderloin or pulled chicken would also be a tasty addition.
Wrap the entire pineapple in bacon and secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle the exterior with Stubbs Pork Spice Rub.
Smoke for 4 hours or until the bacon gets crispy. You will want to take an internal temperature reading to make sure the meat is cooked thru. Once the bacon is crisp, start basting with Stubbs Texas Sriracha Anytime Sauce for another 30 minutes. This will thicken and give the “Swineapple” a sweet and spicy kick.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy.
This can be served as an appetizer, main meal or even a baconeee dessert. The stuffing options are endless, so go nuts. Thanks for stopping by.
