The dearly departed OBediah made the best grilled peaches bar none.

Pineapple slices dipped on coconut milk, then sprinkled with sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon, then grilled. Top with vanilla ice cream and enjoy. To make it interesting, let them soak in some rum for an hour first. Peaches and bananas sound grub too, i'll have to try those.

I do peaches then put over vanilla ice cream.
Now veggies are the best off the grill. My best is sliced potatoes (length-width wise) mixed with sliced onion, salt, pepper, lots and lots of butter and the KEY ingredient ... rosemary. Wrap it all up (with potatoes stacked with onion layers and butter layers) in foil, double, and put on the grill for a good 45 minutes.
This is absolutely incredible as a side to beef, salmon, chicken and grilled asparagus or corn.
You can do the same foil wrap with mixed veggies (squash, zucchini, green beans, whatever) with itailian dressing and salt and pepper.
Steamed anything in foil on the bbq is the best you could have.

If a teriyaki skewer w/ pineapples count, then yes! I like grilled pineapples. I'd love to try grilling other fruits as well.

Nothing special. Just sprinkle garlic salt or Lawrys Seasoning salt over the chicken breast and wrap it in foil with the pineapple. Grill the package on the grill and then remove the stuff and grill it seperately. Grilling it in the foil seals in the juices and gives the chicken a nice flavor before you grill it.

My mom grills "platanos machos," which are plantains. They're similar to bananas, but are much starchier & have a slight resemblance to a sweet potato. If a sweet potato & a banana had a baby, this is what it would taste like. My mom puts the whole plantain on the grill. She doesn't use any oil or aluminum. She let's them cook until they're nicely charred all around. When you cut one open, depending on the amount of ripeness level that it was at, you will get a deliciously sweet & sugary decadence. You can eat it straight from the charred casing, scoop it out & place some nice vanilla ice-cream on top, or you add it in a bowl with some cream & milk. Very good! A little butter & brown sugar will intensify it's flavor.
Though, it's an acquired taste. Not everyone likes them.

Ive done pineapples, peaches, and nectarines....all fantastic. Though not a fruit cutting thick steak fries from Russets and soaking in olive oil and good on the grill. Taste very similar to french fries....kids love em.

One more to mention is grilling canteloupe. Cut them into spears, drizzle a mixture of honey and vermouth and grill. Be careful though, because if they grill too long they turn to mush. Get them right and they are quite tasty.
