I wanted to share this because it will work great with wild pork, deer, duck and elk. I have been wanting to make this for a while on the new pellet grill. Well, yesterday was a good day. I can't put it into words describing how flavorful and tender this was. Easy to make as well.

I didn't have a Brazilian vertical Skewer so I made my own (I like it better than the ones available at the store).

Enjoy!

You my friend have outdone yourself! I have been wanting to try this for a while!! I picked up a smoke tube the other week after seeing your previous posts..used it for a tri tip and came out great..definitely a great add on for the pellet grill.

John, So do you think the pineapple on top serves a purpose and if so why and if it does why not more different fruits in between each layer? Just askin..

This is a guess Fred, but I think the pineapple juice dripping down helps to caramelize the bark on the outside. I have seen a few recipes where they layer bacon in with the marinated pork. The recipe I used did not lack moisture or flavor so who knows.

Just thinking that maybe the addition of layers of fruit of what ever sort in between might enhance whats going on. Also saw a post about using the run off juices to baste with and that sounds like it might be good idea as well.. I saw your home made rack tray and when that was mentioned I thought about a pizza pan turned up right with a skewer to catch juices and reuse. Just my mind going into overdrive I know from experience what you built was stellar...
