Back in February of 2013, Dizzy Pig owner Chris Capell created a seasoning for grilling fruit and called it Pineapple Head. Since then it has become one of our most popular seasonings. Our foodie customers proved that this sweet and slightly savory seasoning is not just for fruit. From chicken to bacon to shrimp to sweet potatoes to a topping for vanilla ice cream, its versatility is still being discovered.
Chris recently got to thinking how cool it would be to go for that sweet/heat sensation by notching up the chilies. We’ve been working hard, doing a lot of tasting, and got it to the point where the spice tingles your palate on many levels. Just the right dose of black pepper, chipotle, habanero and cayenne, and there you have it. Spicy Pineapple Head!
OMG GOOD !!!

First night – pork chops – best we’ve ever had!! Second night – wings and drum sticks – best we’ve ever had!! Tonight – shoe leather – I guarantee this seasoning will make it awesome!!
Sweet and spicy brisket... Try it!
I actually like tis seasoning on bee brisket. I like to make a sweet and spicy brisket and this seasoning works great for that. It is the perfect combination of sweet and spice that actually compliments the beef perfectly. Obviously works really well on pork. If I had to compare the flavor, I would probably say it reminds me of a ham glaze almost.
Spicy Pineapple Head is AWESOME on pork chops and boneless pork loin. Perfect sweet heat. nice kick-up alternative to more mild brown sugar-based rubs. I smoke both with Spice Pineapple Head in my pit barrel cooker. Also great on pork ribs!
