Easy Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Grilled Ribs from www.SeasonedSprinkles.com

Summer is right around the corner. It’s amazing. Just a few weeks ago, there was a blizzard, and now 80 degree days and sunshine and grill weather is here. I LOVE grill weather. Everything tastes great on the grill from burgers and grilled buffalo wings to these sweet and spicy pineapple ribs. I was thrilled to team up with Smithfield Fresh Pork to create this rib recipe.

Years when Easter is late and the weather is nice, we often grill either here or at my Dad’s house. We almost always end up at my Dad’s sometime during Easter weekend. My Dad puts on the hardest Easter egg hunt ever. He has to write down where he hides all of them, and then myself, husband and my siblings and their significant others run around in this extremely competitive cut throat egg hunt.

It might get a little ugly. But it’s so much fun. You’d think there would be amazing prizes stuffed in the eggs, but nope. The grand prize is normally the egg with a dollar bill. That person gets a chocolate bunny. All the other eggs normally have things my Dad finds around the house: paper clips, mustard packets, maybe some spare change. But we know the real prize isn’t the chocolate bunny. It’s bragging rights. The winner gets to rub their sweet victory in their siblings’s faces for the next year.

We are so mature.

This immaturity works up an amazing appetite. If we do dinner at my Dad’s after, he often will fire up his charcoal grill and throw on ribs or burgers. This year, we may just have to grill these sweet and spicy pineapple ribs. And let me tell you, grilling ribs is so easy. You just sort of set them up and let them go low and slow, keeping an eye on them every now and then. For grilling tips, check out this video.

These ribs pack huge flavor: pineapple, ginger, a little zip from hot sauce. Add to it the smokey flavor from the grill and OMG. Amazing. Plus, using Smithfield Fresh Pork ensured these ribs would be juicy and fall of the bone good. Be sure to check out the Smithfield’s site and be on the lookout for their 5000 dollar giveaway.

    My husband and son definitely like ribs, but since we live in a condo, we aren’t allowed to grill. These would be a great alternative because maybe we could cook them in the oven or on the stovetop griddle. The addition of pineapple sounds delicious, too! Your Easter celebration sounds hilarious. I can just imagine you and your adult family members looking for eggs. Sounds like a ton of fun!

      Oh bummer about not having access to a grill, but you could do the oven for sure. And yes, it’s pretty funny. The trash talking has already started for this year’s egg hunt lol.

    That egg hunt reminds me of the one we used to have with my cousins when I was a kid! And ribs on the grill are definitely the best way to celebrate a win in the egg hunt. I love the pineapple twist on these ribs…thanks for sharing! #client

    What a fun Easter egg hunt! My grandparents used to do that for me and my cousins too and it was so much fun. And how about these ribs. Look so good! Love pineapple in everything. Grill weather is not quite here yet but I can’t wait!
