For almost 20 years I wondered why I didn’t get a rotisserie when I bought my first grill. Well, I solved that problem when I bought a Weber Summit S-670. I never knew how much I needed a rotisserie until I got one. Besides the ‘usual’ stuff like rotisserie chicken or ham, I also get to make delicious dishes like this Brazilian rotisserie pineapple. The pineapple is brushed with coconut milk then coated in cinnamon sugar. Onto the grill for a while and then sliced and served with whipped cream, it’s one delicious dessert!
One of the things I learned while making Brazilian rotisserie pineapple is that the eyes on a pineapple grow up the sides at an angle. You get a really great presentation when you remove them in a spiral pattern. And it gives the coconut milk and cinnamon sugar more places to stick to. Win!
You don’t need a massive Weber S-670 to make this. Any grill, gas or charcoal (Weber makes a rotisserie that works with their charcoal grill too!), with a rotisserie will do just fine. Just remember that you skewer the pineapple from the side and not lengthwise thru the core (which would be pretty hard to do!).

I loved grilled fruit. Anita, not so much. Until now. Grilled maple bacon pineapple rings made a believer out of her with the first bite. Sweet lightly charred pineapple, heavenly real maple syrup and smoky bacon. It’s the perfect simple grilled dessert. Or side dish. I mean, I served it as a side dish. Why not? I’m an adult. I can have dessert any time I want, right?
I bought this really cool pineapple corer from Amazon the other day. I’ve been wanting to use it forever. I picked up a pineapple on sale, got the corer out of the box, and in about a minute I had perfect fresh pineapple rings for these grilled maple bacon pineapple rings. You can also make a pineapple ‘bowl’, great for serving things like fried rice and grilled shrimp with pineapple. It’s a fun little gadget. And it sure does make making these wonderful side (or dessert) a whole heck of a lot easier.
I recommend that you use a grill basket when making this dish. It makes cooking easier and you don’t have to worry about anything falling through the grates. And cleanup is easier too!
