Wrap Bacon Around Stuffed Pineapple Note: some folks use a bacon weave but I opted to just wrap. Both methods work great.
Bacon can be stretched up to nearly twice it's length (if you are careful) and this is perfect for wrapping pineapple since you will most likely need about 16 inches of bacon to make it all the way around the pineapple with a little overlap.
Lay down about 6 strips of stretched bacon slightly overlapping on the sides.
Lay the pineapple onto the bacon and bring the bacon over the top of the pineapple trying to cover it completely.
Now roll the pineapple to finish the wrapping process.
Secure the ends of the bacon with small toothpicks.
Sprinkle our Sweet & Spicy Southern Rub all over the outside of the pineapple.
Set the finished pineapple up onto a grill pan or a cookie sheet and it is ready for the smoker.
