1 large ripe whole pineapple
1 pound BBQ pork ribs, meat removed from the bones
12 slices thick-cut bacon (see Cook's Note)
If you are buying packaged bacon, the kind labeled thick cut work best. If you order your bacon custom-sliced at the deli counter, request 1/8-inch-thick strips. If the slices are too thick they will not give and stretch enough to wrap the pineapple.
