For Memorial Day Weekend this year, I decided to grill up some Pork and Pineapple skewers on this grill. As you would expect super easy to make.

skewers ready for the grill

I’ve made these grilled skewers using both pork loin and tenderloin so feel free to use whatever you prefer or have on hand. Much of the flavor comes from the awesome marinade.

Personally I like to let the pork marinate for a couple of hours before grilling so they can absorb as much of the flavor as possible but you can grill them right away if needed. If you are using wooden skewers this might be a good time to get them ready as well.

I usually have sherry on hand so that is what I used for this recipe but you can use any kind of white cooking wine when making this split pea soup recipe. You will not notice a difference in flavor when all is said and done.

If you don’t have any peanut oil on hand you can substitute it for another oil with a high smoke point like corn oil or canola oil. You can also use olive oil in a pinch.
