Ham and Pineapple Summer Kebabs

Fire up the barbecue — it’s grilling season! These easy kebabs come together in a flash and are perfect for poolside parties or as a simple yet delicious dinner with friends or family during busy weeknights.


  • 1 1/2 lbs Original Hickory Smoked Kentucky Legend Ham Steak
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 pineapple, peeled and cored
  • 1 red onion
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 12 twelve-inch barbecue skewers, soaked in water


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat; grease grates well.
  2. Cut ham steak, red peppers, pineapple and onion into 1-inch chunks.
  3. Thread steak, red pepper, pineapple and onion chunks onto skewers, alternating ingredients, to yield 12 kebabs.
  4. In small bowl, stir together barbecue sauce and 1/4 cup water. Brush kebabs evenly with barbecue sauce until well coated.
  5. In batches, grill kebabs, turning occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp and ham and pineapple are heated through and well-marked.


These kebabs are also delicious prepared with Kentucky Legend Honey Ham Steak or Brown Sugar Ham Steak.

Any remaining chopped pineapple can be enjoyed as a snack or dessert, tossed into salads or frozen in a resealable bag for smoothies later on!
