Electric Smoker Smoked Oysters

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.

12 oysters


  • 12 fresh oysters in shells, rinsed and scrubbed clean

  • 2 pinches salt

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat an electric smoker to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).

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

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

  4. 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.
