Grilled Pineapple

If you have ever been to a Brazilian restaurant, you know how awesome grilled pineapple is.  Oh I love this stuff! It's so sweet and delicious, it almost melts in your mouth.  It's so lice outside right now and great grilling weather! Try this out, your family will love it.
Grilled Pineapple

1 pineapple
1 cup brown sugar (not packed)

Slice pineapple (without skin) into long thick chunks. Lay them on a cookie sheet or large plate.  Sprinkle them with brown sugar and let sit for about 10-15 min.  Until they juices start to sweat and mix with the brown sugar to form a glaze.  Turn pineapple to the opposite side and sprinkle with more brown sugar. Place on the TOP rack of a preheated grill. About Medium heat. Grill for about 20-30 minutes rotating when needed.

Hint- you can grill them on the bottom rack on very low heat and just watch them because they will cook a lot faster. The slow cooking makes it so it doesn't dry out and gives it a delicious flavor.
Hint- When you see a recipe calling for brown sugar it means to pack it in the measuring cup and smash it down firm.  If you are not supposed to do it, the recipe (like this one) will state otherwise.
