Simple yet elegant oysters smoked in their own shells. I've never been a fan of canned oysters but they don't even compare to these. Smoking them in their own liquor plumps them up and gives them a great texture.

  • Shuck oysters and add them to a bowl along with their liquor. Add salt and let marinate for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, wash 1/2 of the shells. Drain liquor from the oysters and place an oyster in each half shell.

  • Place shells directly on the grate and smoke for 1 1/2 hours. Top each oyster with a dash of Worcestershire sauce before serving.

Cook's Note:

I've found that cherry wood works best for these.
