Pineapple Teriyaki Maui Wowie Chicken

Recipe by BacusBBQ


Prep time


Cooking time






A whole chicken cooked beer can style on top of a pineapple and smothered with teriyaki sauce.


  • 1 1 whole chicken

  • 1 1 pineapple

  • 1 tbsp 1 olive oil

  • 3 tbsp 3 bbq / poultry seasoning of choice

  • 1.5 cups 1.5 teriyaki sauce of choice


  • Rub olive oil all over the chicken and season thoroughly. Be sure to season under the skin as well. Take the teriyaki sauce and pour into bowl and set aside at room temperature until ready to use.
  • Take the pineapple and cut off the top. Then trim the outer edges to form a stand for the chicken to stand on.
  • Set the chicken upright on the pineapple stand so that it's standing up. Set your smoker / grill to 325 degrees F indirect. Add a wood chunk or chips of choice (I prefer apple or pecan). Place the chicken on the grill and begin cooking.
  • Once the internal temperature of the chicken reaches roughly 150-155 degrees F smother the chicken with the room temp teriyaki sauce. Be sure to lightly baste so as to not rub off any of the seasoning.
  • Once the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F, remove from the grill, and let rest for 15-25 minutes. Then, carve up and dig in.
