Pluck doves and use game shears to split up the back. Place one inch or so of pineapple in body cavity along with one half jalapeno pepper. Wrap bacon around dove and secure with a toothpick, then pepper. Cook on outdoor grill or broil indoors. Cook until bacon is crisp and doves are dark brown. Turn at least once to cook each side.
