Nothing speaks more of summer than hot dogs on the grill. Add some tropical fruit and you’ve got a hot dog that’s perfect for any pool party, lake side grill-out, or family barbecue.
About 10 years ago I visited the Dole Pineapple Plantation in Hawaii. The thing that surprised me the most was that pineapples grow in the ground and not trees. Here I was, in my mid 20’s, and I should have known this simple fact. I was shocked to say the least but have since come to realize that it is very common for people to believe that pineapples grow on trees. If you take away nothing else from this post, please remember that pineapples don’t grow on trees!
When my friends over at Petit Jean Meats asked me if I could come up with a few unique hot dog recipes for the summer I immediately thought of pineapple. I knew I wanted to create a dog that included this quintessential summer ingredient.
