Sweet and Spicy Grilled Shrimp

This is the last meal I made on my grill before my BRAND NEW GRILL died. Sigh. We have been loving our grill this summer but after 7-8 uses it conked out. I still have to call the manufacturer and see what they can do for us since it's really brand new. As I was waiting for the grill to heat to grill these shrimp I realized it just wasn't getting hot enough. Luckily the plan was shrimp, which don't require much heat or grill time. Had it been a steak I was intending to make I guess the meal would have had to be scratched, but shrimp are so quick cooking!

This marinade was delicious. The combo of ingredients is weird, but the flavor is fabulous. I had stumbled upon this recipe on All Recipes and decided to heavily (like, very heavily) modify it. The flavor combo was slightly smokey, slightly sweet, and full of flavor. Give it a try, we loved it!
