A recent conversation with a business associate reminded me of a marinade I used to make all the time. It's been years and I was way overdue.

It's simple, and as usual for me, I don't have an exact recipe. Cheap-a$$ Italian salad dressing, Teriyaki sauce and canned crushed pineapple. I like to use the one in heavy syrup for this, but it's your call. Then I add a little ground ginger. Whoop it all up in a blender. Adjust flavors to taste.

Then marinate, steaks, pork or chicken and grill/smoke whatever.

In this case I used CSRs.

The pureed pineapple makes the marinade kind of thick. The sugar makes it sweet, but prone to easy burning, so watch out over hot coals.

Grilled piggy pieces set off for some indirect and a little smoke.

Then they were foiled and allowed to cook a little more. Then rested.

Mmmmm...:Drool2::Drool2:

Meats prepared this way pair nicely with cut fruits like cantaloupe, grilled pineapple, or fruit salad.

Thanks for lookin'!

I agree with 01 adding a little heat would probably be a nice touch.

I have a similar recipe and I use fresh ginger, chili paste and sprinkle with fresh cilantro after grilling. Always great.

Looks great.

You think you use equal parts of each? Maybe a TBS of ginger? I look forward to trying it.

:shrug: I guess. I do most everything to taste. Add ginger til you like it. Heck, it's good without ginger. The ginger idea came along well after I was doin' this stuff to everyone's delight.
