“These grilled skewers are easy to made and delicious. Serve with rice, sweet potatoes, or grilled carrots (as pictured) for a complete meal. I use deer steak in this recipe, but of course you can use beef or even chicken. Amounts are approximate because how many jalapenos, pineapples, and bacon you need depends on how many chunks of meat you end up with after cutting.”
3-4 skewers

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs deer steak, cubed
  • 6 -10 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 1 cup pineapple chunk
  • 4 -6 jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise and seeded


  1. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30-60 minutes. This will help prevent the skewers from burning and splintering.
  2. Preheat your grill to medium heat or 350°F Once pre-heated, clean and oil the grill.
  3. While the grill is heating, prepare your skewers. Place half a jalapeno, a chunk of meat, and a pineapple chunk and wrap in a half-slice of bacon. This is the trickiest part and I find it easiest to lay the items on top of the bacon and then wrap. Poke through the skewer and repeat. Load 4 or 5 wrapped pieces on each skewer.
  4. Place on grilled for 20 minutes or until cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F Depending on your grill, you may wish to rotate and/or flip the skewers half-way through cooking for a move even cook.
