My wife discovered this recipe in a grilling magazine called "Sizzle".

It says that it serves 6. (It's very good, I would say 5-10)

It also says that it's a dessert - I would agree with that.

BREAKDOWN:
1 whole pineapple, quartered and sliced
½ cup maple syrup
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon Grand Marnier™ (I altered it to a full teaspoon)

Quarter a fresh pineapple lengthwise,
remove core, cut in ½" slices, and cut along shell to separate the slices.
Keeping the slices on top of the shell,
place the quarters shell side down on a preheated grill.
Grill on 'medium' for 15 minutes, or until heated through.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl,
and baste the pineapple with this mixture every 5 minutes.



Very,.....very tasty! Exclamation

If you like pineapple, you'll love this!

Dude, you have a Fiesta gas grill!
They are originally a Canadian company.
Here's some info I found that might interest you.

http://www.grill-parts.com/fiesta/fiesta.htm

I bought a Fiesta grill back in 1993 just before my first marriage.
At the time, it was essentially a throw away, which is what happened. Crying or Very sad Confused
The grill, not my marriage. Oh yeah, that did happen Exclamation Laughing Shocked Cool Wink

I always prefer to buy stuff that's American or Canadian made.
However, it's getting tougher these days. Mad
My current Napoleon gas grill is made just a 15-20 minute drive away from me.
Going on 8 years, no complaints. Could easily go another 8.

Yes, I bought the fiesta because of it's Canadian/American heritage 4 or 5 years ago. Talked to a guy at the factory probably 2 years ago and he said that they had a stockpile of the type of grill I had and parts. He said that they had ceased production in the US anyway and that their signature grill, the Blue Ember was made in China. Anyhow, another US manufactured product bites the dust.

I think that some, if not all, Weber grills are made in China now.

I almost asked you about your grill. Looks cool in the picture. I will have to consider the Napoleon brand when my Fiesta expires Shocked

Here's a site.

http://www.napoleongrills.com/

I just recently bought a 22.5" Weber kettle for $98 + tax (Cdn $, so a total of $110.74)
I have yet to assemble it - very soon.

The box says the following:
"Made in the USA, incorporating globally sourced component parts".
What the HEŁĿ does that mean? Question

That is the 24,000 dollar question! I assume that they are doing some assembly in the U.S. I have an email into them and we will see what they say.

OK here are responses from 1.Weber and 2.Napoleon
1.Thank you for contacting Weber Customer Service's Email Support.

Our two factories are in Huntley and Palatine Illinois. Weber's Genesis, Summit, Q, and charcoal kettle grill lines are produced in the United States. However, it is not uncommon for an accessory (e.g. Rotisserie) for these models to be made in China.

Only our entry level gas grill line is no longer made in the United States. In order to be able to stay competitive with our competitors, our Spirit gas grill line is manufactured in a Weber plant in China. Our plant is owned and operated by Weber, at Weber's legendary standards.

All of our grills are still engineered and supported at our corporate office in Palatine, Illinois. All of our grills are covered under extensive warranties, which can be found online at: http://www.weber.com/support/warranty/

Our customer service office is located in Schaumburg, Illinois. If you have any questions regarding any of our grills, please feel free to give us a call to speak with a live representative at 800/446-1071. We are available to take your call 7 days a week, 7am-11pm, CST.

Thank you for your interest in Weber!

2.Our Ultra chef, Prestige and Prestige Pro models are made in Barrie Ontario or Crittenden Kentucky.

Our Mirage and Lifestyle grills are made in our plant in China.

Please contact Customer Care at 1-866-820-8686 should you require any further assistance.

Kind Regards

I love pineapple so I will have to try this on the weekend.

I have done LOTS of work for Napoleon, or Wolf Steel as they are called, primarily on their wood stoves. They have had a plant in China for a few years for some of the lesser models. They are now producing parts for all their models in China. Just over a year ago they sourced all the parts I made to China and I permanently laid off a full time man. It was the same time they put the "Made In Canada" sign up in front of their building.

Ya dude, the pineapple done this way is awesome!

It is sad how jobs are being sent overseas.
It's becoming very difficult to buy something that is 100% domestic. Confused (U.S./Canada)
