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
Rinse oysters and brush to make sure they are clear of sand and mud.
melt butter and add garlic and lime juice.
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)
pop the shells with a oyster knife and cut oyster loose at this time. I hold oyster with a heavy glove.
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.
top with a little dab of bbq sauce of your choice. I like stubbs spicy
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
