Scallops? We're talking about scallops?

To quote allen iverson (kind of) we're talking about scallops for dinner. Have four big fresh ones but have never done them on green egg or anything else in my life.

I've done some research and see that some have done them at 500 degrees direct for no more than 2 mins on each side. 

Anyone have any advice on a good spicy rub to toss on 'em

Also any advice would be great as we give these a shot in a few hours. 

Thanks!

    I would cook them in a hot cast iron pan with some ghee and little lemon, salt,pepper.  Few minutes per side and done.  I like to do them on a Himalayan salt block, but that is probably not in your inventory YET!

    That's how I do them.  No lemon until after I cook though, and last time I used goat butter.  I generally don't clarify my butter for pan frying, don't mind if it gets brown.
