Pineapple in the BEESR? Why Not?

After the great success with the Brisket in the Big Easy Electric Smoker and Roaster (BEESR), we decided to give a pineapple a try.  Why you may ask?  Why not!  I think I saw a video of this being done somewhere but I can’t seem to find it.  Perhaps the idea came to me in a dream.  Not sure.  Regardless, we decided to give it a shot.

We started by rubbing down the inside of the BEESR with vegetable oil.  (it’s just the stuff from the grocery store in a bottle that says vegetable oil).  We pour a little on a washcloth and wipe the insides til it has a nice thin coat.  Then we turned it on and waited about 15 minutes for it to warm up.

Next we cut the top parts off of the pineapple with a knife.  Not the top of the pineapple it’self, just the leaf things coming out the top.  Not sure if we need to do that or not but we didn’t want them to burn.

Next, we put the whole thing in the bottom of the basket and put the basket in the BEESR.  We didn’t set a target temperature.  We set a timer for 45 minutes.

When the timer went off, we took the basket out of the BEESR and removed the pineapple with heat proof gloves.  Then, using one of the heat proof gloves, we cut the top off the actual pineapple with a knife.  We then used a pineapple corer to remove the good stuff from the pineapple.  This isn’t the exact one we used, but it’s quite similar and shows how it works.  Once the pineapple has been roasted, it’s fairly easy to use the corer on it.

That turned out the best pineapple I’ve ever had.  I don’t have any pictures of this one because we didn’t get started until midnight.  Hopefully I’ll get some pictures of the next one we do.  Wow was that thing good.  Sooo easy to do.  Loving this BEESR.
