Choose Your Pineapple Wisely LOL

Postby egghead » Sun Apr 08, 2018 8:54 am

Which one would you buy?

The one on the left is not a good choice - not ripe enough but will ripen

The second one is still not ripe enough. Notice they start turning yellow from the bottom up.

The third one is my choice - will use today on some ABTs

The fourth one may be okay but looks way over ripe to me

Class dismissed :lol:

Simply add a slice of pineapple. Before the pineapple is is savory, salty, and Smokey. After pineapple it is sweet, savory, salty, and Smokey. :D

Leave a few seeds and membrane to make it interesting, fill with philly cheese, favorite rub (I like Hoochie Mama), slice of pineapple or crushed pineapple from can works as well, wrap in bacon, and finally add some more rub - ready for some smoke.

There are soooo many ways to do ABTs. I’ve done them lots of different ways varying the stuffing - pineapple, pear, pulled pork, brisket, steak, ham, piece of tamale (yes I did - LOL) but pineapple is my favorite.

Amazing. And yup, something we wanna try!

Do you ever try pulling a center leaf? I read if it's loose, the pineapple's ripe.

Haven’t tried that. I just buy the one that is yellow top to bottom but not one that looks to be over ripe.

I'd go by feel myself, if just firm I'd buy it, we serve fruit platters here for the wee kids, and some big kids,lol. My kids prefer fruits over ice creams etc. the wee ones love pineapple.

More on the pineapple. Time to pimp it up and grill it :mrgreen:

The photos are pretty much self explanatory. Shave the top to make a handle. Notice that the eyes run diagonally top to bottom. A “V” cut diagonally removes the eyes. The result is a crunchy outside and juicy inside. Rubbed with Hoochie Mama.
