My first post!
This was sooo good. Going to make it again tonight. 

1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Apple Cider vinegar
1/3 - 1/2 cup pineaplle juice (from can)
Salt & pepper to taste
Tables Spoon of your favorite chili powder/rub etc
2 Table Spoon brown sugar
Table Spoon of oil (Coconut or olive)

1 sweet onion 
2-3 peppers (I like to mix red green orange etc.)
Can of chunk pineapple (drained, reserve juice)
10 - 15 whole garlic cloves (optional)

1-2 lbs of raw, peeled shrimp


Preheat egg to about 400

Peel and de-vein shrimp, set aside (in fridge)
Strain pineapple keep juice
Mix all marinade ingredients together
Chop veggies to about 1 in squares
Add a small amount of marinade to shrimp
Add remaining marinade to veggies

I like to do marinades (especially of vegetables) in gallon plastic bags.  Makes it really easy to coat everything and reserve marinade later for basting.

When ready to cook if you are using a bag tear the corner and drain marinade into a bowl to use for basting during cooking.

Put a grill basket onto the egg and let it pre-heat for a couple minutes.

Add the veggies into the basket.

Cook, stirring and basting occasionally (every 5 minutes or so) for about 20-30 minutes until veggies are starting to cook somewhat done.

Add shrimp to basket. Shrimp doesn't need to cook that long.  MAybe ~8-10 minutes.

Remove when shrimp is cooked through.

Eat and enjoy!!!
