Teriyaki Brat and Pineapple Kabobs

Looking for a simple dish to throw on the barbecue this holiday weekend but, you want something other than your typical burgers or dogs? Well, here's a little something that fits the bill.
Teriyaki Brats and Pineapple
Matt and I were wandering around the grocery store the other day trying to think of what we wanted to grill for dinner that night. He was leaning towards sausages of some kind but, I wanted something a little different then just a sausage on a bun. Then it hit me, pineapple gets nice and caramelized on the grill and is so tasty with pork. Teriyaki goes will with pork and pineapple so why not with a pork brat?! The results was an easy Asian-inspired kabob that surprised both of us with how good it was.
Teriyaki Brats and Pineapple
There is really no recipe here at all since it's just putting brat slices and pineapple chunks on skewers, coating them in teriyaki sauce and barbecuing until everything is heated through. Here's a few tips though...
* Choose a smoked pork brat that is cooked through already. A fresh brat will be hard to cut into sliced and skewer.
* Look for a teriyaki barbecue sauce instead of the normal teriyaki sauce in the Asian section, it will be thicker and stick to everything better.
* We bought fresh pineapple chunks in the produce section of the grocery store which made putting this dinner together quicker than cutting up our own pineapple.
* Skewer your brat slices through the edges so the cut sides will be sitting on the grill. This puts more of the meat in contact with the heat.
* Barbecue until the pineapple chunks start to get some good dark grill marks on them.
* We served our kabobs with jasmine rice and some frozen vegetables that I stir-fried up with a little of the teriyaki sauce.

i like pineapple and i love grilled pineapple, but grilled pineapple with the taste of pork slathered all over it is almost more than i can think about without tearing up. :)
