- 3 tbsp Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce

Soak the skewers in water at least 20 minutes to prevent them from burning.
Combine the shrimp with crushed garlic and season with salt and pepper. You can let this marinate for a while, or even overnight.
Heat a clean, lightly oiled grill to medium heat, when the grill is hot add the shrimp, careful not to burn the skewers. Grill on both sides for about 6 - 8 minutes total cooking time or until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through.
Brush the sauce on during the last minute of cooking and eat right away.
