Combine shrimp and barbecue sauce; turn shrimp to coat well with sauce.
Set aside.
Divide green pepper equally on center of 4 large pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
Bring edges of foil up slightly to hold sauce.
Stir garlic and onion into hot butter in a skillet; cook 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and blend in a mixture of salt, pepper, ginger, and dry mustard, then the remaining ingredients.
Pour the seasoned butter over green pepper.
Divide the shrimp and sauce equally among the 4 packets.
Bring edges of foil up over mixture and seal tightly, using drugstore wrap.
Place on grill 3 to 4 inches from coals and cook about 20 minutes; turn packets over once to cook shrimp evenly.
