What’s Cookin? Thriller Griller Thursday 10/18: Hawaiian Ham BBQ

First, let’s be clear. Grilling is not the same as BBQ. I live in BBQ Country (North Carolina), and I have been corrected many times when speaking with locals.

With grilling, you use a direct flame, cooking quickly. When you BBQ, you use an indirect or low flame, cooking very slowly. And of course, there are different types of grills. The two most common are charcoal and gas grills. I use gas, but I’ll look for recipes for both methods. For a pig roast, an open flame or pit is the way to go, but I’ll stick with grilling or BBQ recipes for now.

Oh, and enjoy!


  • one pound ham
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 cup cantaloupe
  • olive oil
  • pepper


Just cube the ham and fruit into bite-size chunks, and thread onto BBQ skewers. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with a little pepper. Set the barbeque on a high flame, and cook the skewers until heated through, and marked with those great grill marks, (you don’t want to leave them on too long, or the ham dries out and the fruit falls apart). Happy BBQ-ing!
