Grilled Pineapple BBQ Burger

I love a good juicy burger. I’d say my favorite type of burger is quite classic: a grilled chuck burger with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and cheese (usually cheddar or American.) Sometimes I like to go outside the box and try something different. When I used to frequent Five Guys, I used to get a small cheeseburger with grilled mushrooms, grilled onions, mayo, jalapenos, A-1 sauce. It was oh so delish. That reminds me, I need to go to Five Guys again one day.  But until I finally make it back to Five Guys, I’ll enjoy my burgers at home (I’ll be honest, I rarely order a burger when we go out. I usually only order one if I’m desperately craving one.)

A few weeks ago we paid a visit to BJ’s (if you aren’t familiar with BJ’s, it’s similar to Costco) and when we walked in the doors we stumbled upon a huge box of pineapple.  I knew we were going to be grilling burgers that night so I thought to myself, why not get a pineapple to grill. We like grilled pineapple and it goes great with…BURGERS! So we took the pineapple home and the rest is history.  I hope you enjoy this recipe.
