I bought some oysters yesterday. These are from East Point, FL, shucked on the balcony.


I made 5 different kinds.

La Bomba and parmesan cheese
Garlic butter with capers and romano cheese
Garlic butter with sweet cherry peppers and romano
Macaroni and cheese with bacon
Smoked Ham and cheese

Egged at 375-400 dome for 7-8 minutes, til crusty around the edges.



Smoked ham and cheddar oyster:


Homemade mac and cheese with bacon:



The end.

Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    looks good to me. i dont think ive ever eaten one cooked, something to try :)
  • Randy, they were all good. It was fun trying some new, unusual ones.

    The original garlic butter and cheese is a favorite, but the La Bomba ones are pretty tough to beat as well. If you like oysters, you would love those.

    You are killing me again Faith, I like to just roast them on the grid for about 5min, then pop open and eat w/ a splash of hot sauce.
    We can usually get some right out ot the Homosassa river, otherwise we buy them from Cedar Key. I am anxious to see what Stone Crab is going for at home. I buy from a local dock. Two yrs ago they were dirt cheap, last year a little higher, we will see what they are bringing now. ;) :unsure:

    Very nice. :)
    Another must try on the Egg
  • Looks unreal! You inspired me to try it. Where in Cananda do you get the knife to open the Oysters?

    Oh my heavens, stop! You're killing me with all this seafood. Those look incredible. Just tried char grilled oysters for the first time last month. Deeelish.

  • I have no idea where to buy the knife in Canada. Ask at your fishmonger. I use one similar to this:

    I would also recommend a special glove for beginners so you won't slice your hand open. Oysters are easy to shuck if you know where to put the knife. It takes a little practice, but my shucker friend is now very good at it.

    Faith, I have never eaten an oyster that I particularly liked. Yours make me wonder why that is. 'Course, it could be that your cooks always looks wonderful!! :)

    I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded... dead.

    Wow - that's quite a variety. I'll bet the mac n cheese oysters were yummy (well, really I'll bet they were all good). :)
  • Wow Faith, five flights of chargrilled oysters! :) Great appetizers.
  • rsmdalersmdale Posts: 2,472
    Faith you are killing me those look tremendous!! I love Oysters and yours had to taste great!


  • Thank you, Dale and everybody. Sorry, didn't mean to kill everybody with the seafood overload.

    Give the oysters a try. They turn out good no matter what you top them with. The mac and cheese ones were better than they sound. LaBomba oysters rocked. Don't forget the cheese, that's what makes them.
