Tucanos Grilled Pineapple

My brother has been singing the praises of grilled pineapple, so I set out to find a good recipe and try it out. We have been loving this Tucanos Pineapple from Kieras Recipes. (I really only got a taste because my 8 year old gobbled up the rest.)


* One half pineapple, cut into long spears
* 1 TBPS butter
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1 Tsp. cinnamon, in all
* lemon juice

Fire up the grill to medium heat. Before putting the pineapple down, sprinkle the spears with half of the cinnamon and a little bit of brown sugar. This will facilitate a sweetness and instant carmelization when they hit the grill.

In a small saucepan, heat the butter, brown sugar and the rest of the cinnamon. Heat until bubbly and the sugar is properly melted.

Grill the pineapple spears over direct heat about 2-3 minutes per side, turning occasionally. Each time it turns, baste with a brush of glaze. When finished, plate up and drizzle a final amount of glaze on top.

I am excited to try this but, where exactly does the lemon juice come in?

I was also wondering that, so I just put enough in the mixture so it became a glaze (it was thick before). I tried it tonight for part of our 4th of July dinner on the grill. The recipe turned out alright. It was yummy, but not an exact Tucanos match.
