This is my variation of a recipe that I tried years ago. It is a big hit with a crowd for appetizers or for a few folks for dinner. They don't take long to grill, make sure you have a oyster knife for popping the shells ( I have used a CLEAN Screwdriver in a pinch, however you must be real careful as a slip will cause you to impale your hand quite easily)

How to Make Grilled Oysters

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse oysters and brush to make sure they are clear of sand and mud.
  2. melt butter and add garlic and lime juice.
  3. put oysters on a med high grill for approx. 5-10 minutes. ( watch for them to start to boil around the edges a bit, however some are sealed so tight you may not see it)
  4. pop the shells with a oyster knife and cut oyster loose at this time. I hold oyster with a heavy glove.
  5. return oyster to grill, carefully add 1 tablespoon of bourbon to each shell it will flame a lot if you spill, along with a tablespoon of the butter garlic lime mixture.
  6. top with a little dab of bbq sauce of your choice. I like stubbs spicy
  7. when the mixture comes to a simmer remove and serve hot. when i do these for a crowd i serve right off the grill, just remember shells are HOT
