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.


Pork Tenderloin Dinner

Well, it was 65 degrees today in January so I took a pork tenderloin from the freezer, seasoned it up with Italian dressing, mustard powder, cumin, garlic powder and S&P. Put it on the grill and let her thaw and cook for about 1.5 hours in an aluminum pan about 5 inches from the flame, 400 degrees. Finished it up on the grill with a crust of the same dry spices, Great flavor. Sides tonight were very simple. Grilled onions with my spice blend above and grilled squash with garlic salt and pepper.

Great dinner cooked on the grill of course.  This is a very simple but excellent recipe for camping and tailgating by the way.  Give it a try and if it is not clear give me a shout.
