Preheat grill to high, direct heat. Put chipotles, adobo sauce, brown sugar, and oil in a blender. Grate in zest from lemon; puree.

Halve lemon lengthwise and slice ¼-inch thick. Thread shrimp and pineapple on skewers, finishing each skewer with 1 lemon slice.

Mix chipotle puree and scallions in a large shallow bowl, add shrimp-pineapple skewers and rub with chipotle marinade.

Grill skewers on oiled grates until shrimp are opaque, flipping once, about 5 minutes total.
