Grilled Ham and Pineapple Chutney

Grilled Ham

Ham.  Pick out your favorite size of ham to meet the needs of your family.
1 large can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 tbsp cayenne pepper

Place your ham is a dutch oven.  In a bowl mix remaining ingredients and pour over ham.  Place dutch oven on grill with indirect heat.  Baste ham several times over next few hours.  Cooking time vary due to ham size and type of grill.  I cook mine about 4 – 6 hours keeping temperature between 300 and 350 degrees.

Pineapple Chutney

1 small can pineapple tidbits, drained retaining juice
1/2 cubanelle pepper, diced small
1 small onion, diced small
4 tbsp reserved pineapple juice
4 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp Honey
salt to taste

Mix all ingredients, refrigerate for at least two hours.  Serve with ham.

Grilled Bacon and Eggs

Grilling bacon is another one of those cooking secrets nobody seems to think about. Cooking bacon on the grill is extremely easy to do, will create minimal mess and depending how big your gas grill is, allows you to cook a lot of bacon at a time.

First, pre-heat your gas grill to a low temperature, 300-350 degrees F.

Next, place your bacon across the grill and allow to cook.

Flip every now and then. Cook roughly 20 minutes.

The best part about cooking your bacon on the grill is that all the grease drips off into the grill leaving you with next to no cleanup!

Remove bacon from the grill and serve with some eggs. To cook your egg on the grill take a piece of foil, curl up the edges to form a cup or tray and place over rack, spray with cooking spray and fry the egg on the foil. Use on foil cup per egg.  Makes a great fried egg, again with no clean-up.
