Hey Hey friends!! Hope you had a good Memorial Day weekend. My husband made this AMAZING dish in his smoker last weekend, so I thought I’d share it with you. Swineapple, you say? Yes!! It’s a hollowed out Pineapple, stuffed with boneless pork loin then wrapped in bacon. So delicious!!
You can see the step-by-step picture tutorial below. The recipe is at the bottom! Enjoy!
Boneless Pork Ribs or Pork Loin
Quality THICK CUT Bacon
Seasoning of Choice ( We use a lot of Tony Chachere’s made not far from where we grew up in Louisiana!)
Smoker (We have this Electric Smoker that my husband LOVES!!)
Marinate the pork overnight in your choice of marinade. We used soy sauce and minced garlic.
Start your smoker pre-heating to 240 degrees while preparing pineapple.
To prepare whole Pineapple, cut the bottom off and set aside for use later. Leave the top of the pineapple in tact. Stand it up on the bottom cut part, and peel the outside using a sharp knife, going from the top to the bottom. Hollow the pineapple out using a knife and an ice cream scoop.
Stuff marinated pork into the hollowed out pineapple, put the bottom of the pineapple back in place and use toothpick to secure it.
Wrap thick cut bacon all the way around your pineapple, even on the bottom. Secure with toothpicks.
Place in your pre-heated smoker, cook for 5 hours, adding wood chips twice throughout cooking time.
You will have a large bowl of pineapple left. We used some for fried rice and the rest can be frozen for smoothies or fruit salad!
This Swineapple recipe is extremely decadent but oh so good. I can’t imagine having it more than maybe once a year but for a special occasion is will really wow your friends and family.
