Roasted Pineapple Chicken Skewers from Grill it with Levi by Levi Roots.

This one is a firm favourite at The Happy Foodie HQ. Sweet and salty, sticky and succulent, this recipe takes BBQ chicken skewers to a whole new level. We're also big fans of Levi's Jerk Barbecue Salmon Steaks with Mango 'Chop Chop' Salsa. And while we're listing Levi BBQ favourites, you can't miss his Roasted Treacle Toffee Bananas! Those bad boys are worth digging out the barbecue for in mid-Winter.
