Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Oysters Rockefeller or St. Louis Style

Have you ever had Oysters Rockefeller that were raw underneath and topped with a burnt crust of cheese? Or how about St. Louis style Oysters that were simply a dried-out flavorless mess? Well, I think I've nailed it with the Big Green Egg!! So, this is my FIRST time cooking on the Big Green Egg (Christmas Gift) and they were BY FAR the best oysters I've ever had! Cooking at around 320 for 30 minutes seemed to be perfect. 

I prepared the filling with: chopped garlic, onion & chive cream cheese, grated parmesan cheese, shredded cheddar, bacon bits, mexican cheese, a shake of Old Bay Blackened, some Tobasco Chipotle to taste, and a good dose of horseradish sauce. (See Pictures Below) Put a scoop of the mix on top each raw oyser, then top everything with more shredded cheddar, bacon bits and a little chopped cilantro. (Traditional Rockefeller would use spinach). Also, i chopped up a tiny bit of chorizo sausage (uncooked) and put it in the oysters for a saltier taste on some of them.

For St. Louis style, I put a pad of butter on each oyster, then shredded parmesan

Of course, any mix of the above works very well. 

Also, on the BGE you'll see some halved jalepenos stuffed with the same mix, then wrapped with bacon. As always, be sure to scrape out the seeds and vein from the jalepenos first before stuffing!
