    Swineapple

    So I decided to tackle making a Swineapple today. Sharon was so into it she ordered some 'Tennessee Whiskey' rub and swineapple glaze. Who am I to argue

    So here's the basic ingredients. 1 pineapple (I'd recommend getting the biggest you can find), a couple pounds of boneless country style ribs, Some thick sliced bacon, and some rub and some glaze.

    Peel the pineapple. I slice the skin off as close as possible, then go around diagonally getting out the little pits. Leave the top and bottom on

    Hollow out the pineapple as best as you can. I have to admit, it's a little tedious, but very doable. I tried to get as much out as I could so that the pineapple would just barely maintain structural integrity.

    Stuff it with some ribs that you've seasoned with your rub. I'll admit, I did not get as much in there as I had hoped.

    Put the top back on and wrap it in bacon, of course. I just placed the 'extra' ribs around it on some foil. The foil already has some holes in it, and I've got a pan underneath to catch the juices.

    Now I'm going to go put it in the smoker at 225 degrees for several hours until the ribs hit temp. I've read anything on the temp from 160 to 190, but I think I'm going to go for 180.

    I'll probably also mist it with apple juice every hour or so.

    More pics to follow later.

    I guess one could use something like chunks of pork butt in place of boneless ribs, another thing i aint seen in our stores or our Costco. Linda loves pineapple so this could be a nice one to try for summer. Thanks Brent for the idea and recipe. My mouth is watering as i type and its supper time here thank goodness.
    cheers

    This sort of pics should be banned in the COC rules! Now I'm feeling hungry, my mouth is watering on my keyboard, and I look like homer Simpson looking a them. Brent treating your ww family in such a way is like putting the carrot, (I mean the pineapple) in front of the donkey ; and good friends don't do that!! unless they are sitting at your table that day!

    Maybe I should start posting some pics of spanish dishes in vengeance!
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Dead swine is fine. Meal looked good
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
