Pineapple Terriyaki Burgers

It seems summer is going to be gone if I blink, so we’re trying to fit in as many BBQ dinners as possible.  When I was a teenager I remember making my Dad pineapple burgers with ham.  I remembered them the other day and thought they could use a re-appearance with some added touches.
These are our all-time favorites now and whenever we grill now it seems these make it on!
And adding the pinapple scraps to the grills gives such an amazing flavor.  The moisture in them makes this great pineapple flavored smoke. 
If you aren’t able to grill, you could also use an indoor grill pan or skillet, and I bet they would still be pretty amazing.  Happy Summer! (Or what’s left of it anyways)  : )
Burger mixture:
1 lb ground beef
2 T terriyaki sauce
3 T finely diced onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
To serve:
red onion, sliced and grilled
fresh pineapple, sliced and grilled (Save aside the skin of the pinapple)
Ham, sliced medium thick and grilled
condiments of choice (We like adding fresh chopped cilantro to mayo on these)
Gently mix the burger ingredients together and form into 4 patties.
When coals are hot, add the skin from the pineapple to the coals.
Grill the burgers, red onion, pineapple, ham, and buns on the hot grill.
