    And if so, how about some recipes.

    Never heard of it but my wife says that B. Flay guy does some of this stuff on the grill.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know how he done it, but a friend grilled a pineapple one night. It was amazing. I tried to grill one later and it wasn't too good :(

    Many fruits are good when grilled. some of the softer ones may be a bit of a challenge. Experimentation is the trick. Clean and peel, then cut into workable slices, and grill. I like mangoes and pineapple personally. Both are good on skewers with steak, chicken or shrimp.

    brush hot grill with oil.

    Cut peaches in half, press cut side in sugar, place on hot grill for 3 or 4 minutes.

    I broil pears in a carmel glaze.

    I'll dig up the recipe...it's a pretty good dessert - decadent and light at the same time.

    This recipe is from the latest Marlboro - Cook Like a Man - cookbook.

    Sweet Peaches

    - 4 fresh peaches, halved, pitted or 8 canned peach halves, drained well

    - Large resealable plastic bag

    - 1 cup honey

    - 1 Tbsp. vanilla

    - 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

    - 4 Tbsp. strawberry preserves, heated

    - Vanilla Ice Cream

    Coat peaches by placing in bag with honey, vanilla & cinnamon; refrigerate until ready to grill. Preheat grill to medium heat. Remove peaches from bag; reserving honey sauce. Place on grill and cook about 2 minutes per side.

    Remove from grill and spoon about 1 tablespoon strawberry preserves into center of each peach.
    Top with vanilla ice cream and reserved honey sauce.

    Serves 4




    Apple Cannonballs

    - 1/4 cup light brown sugar

    - 1/4 cup raisins

    - 2 Tbsp. chopped nuts

    - 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

    - 4 large baking apples (Macintosh, Granny Smith or Rome)

    - 2 Tbsp. butter, cut into quarters

    Combine brown sugar, raisins, nuts and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside. Core apples and place on individual sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil. Spoon mixture evenly into center of each apple. Top with butter and wrap tightly in foil. Place on preheated grill and cover. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes.

    Serves 4

    I haven't made these yet, just got the book the other day, so not sure how they will taste, but sounds good. Let me know if someone makes these.
    Happy grilling! :cool:
