  • Step 1

    In a large shallow bowl or a storage container, combine the rum, sugar, and cinnamon. Add the pineapple slices and arrange them in a single layer. Coat with the mixture soak for at least 5 minutes per side.

  • Step 2

    Insert the grill grate and close the hood. Select grill, set the temperature to MAX, and set a time to 8 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating. 

  • Step 3

    While the unit is preheating, strain the extra rum sauce from the pineapple. 

  • Step 4

    When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place the fruit on the grill grate in a single Layer (you may need to do this in multiple batches). Gently press the fruit down to maximize Grill marks. Close the hood and grill for about 6 to 8 minutes without flipping. If working in batches, remove the pineapple, and repeat this step for the remaining pineapple slices.       

  • Step 5

    When cooking is complete, remove, and top each pineapple ring with a scoop of ice cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve immediately.
