Rum and Honey Grilled Pineapple on Toasted Pound Cake

From the Summer issue of It's All Fresh. Barbecuing Tip: Don’t forget to give your barbecue a good brush before attempting to cook any dessert. You don’t want your pound cake to taste like chicken and ribs or olive oil and garlic basted steak. I don’t want you to come knocking at my door with pound cake tasting like chicken fried “whatever” demanding compensation. If you are a barbecuing enthusiast (like me), you will have lots of grilling toys that will not touch the barbecue grill, still give you beautiful results and not fail to Wow your guests with a Start to Finish Meal, Outdoors. You deserve respect for your efforts. We started our barbecue party with recipe #307670. Here, then is the dessert.
