  1. Spray a grill-safe baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cut the pears in half from the top and remove seeds.
  3. Place the pears face down in a baking dish and cover them with remaining ingredients.
  4. Cover and place on preheated grill for about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove when most the liquid is gone and pears and easily pierced with a fork.
