  • Place the whole oysters on the hot grill. Cook until they open, 5 to 10 minutes - you will hear the juice sizzling on the hot coals when this happens.

  • Remove the oysters from the grill, and pry off the top shell. You may want to wear some heavy gloves to protect from the heat. Slide a knife between the oyster and shell to disconnect. Top each one with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce and salt to taste. Serve in the shell while still warm.

My husband requested oysters for his birthday dinner...we had them raw in pasta and in this recipe. This was our favorite! Bar-b-queing the oysters also made shucking much easier. Read More

I've been looking forward to making this recipe as I love oysters. I bought a dozen this morning and just finished eating the first 4...The grilling seemed to add grit or pieces of shell to the meat area. The lemon juice / worchestershire was just OK. Read More

Amazingly addictive!! N1COLE nailed it!! But I wanted to add some grilling tips for people who have never tried this before. When you look at an oyster shell you will see that one side is more of a bowl shape and the other side is flatter. Cook them with the bowl shape down to keep in more moisture and avoid shoe leather. Oysters will sometimes "explode" and rapidly vent steam when they first pop open on the grill so be careful where you put your fingers and face when you first start cooking them. They will not "open up" like clams do either. You should see a space just large enough to easily slide a knife into and that's usually about it. Maybe only 1/4" or so. They cook very quickly once they open so keep watch and take them off fast - listen for the sizzle. Use a heavy glove or thick towel to protect you from the heat sharp shells and bubbling liquid when taking off the top shell. If you are brand new to grilling these do them one at a time until you figure out the timing to suit your taste buds (rare medium well done etc) before loading up the grill and potentially ruining a whole batch. Then be prepared to feed your new addiction because these are amazing!! Read More

This was my first time at making oysters and they turned out pretty tasty. I used the oven since the BBQ was rained out. I cooked the oysters at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they cracked open. I also omitted the hot sauce since I am a wimp. Yum! Read More
