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

    Hot and fast indirect.  Best way to avoid breaking the shells and overcooking the meat.
  • Good question. Not sure I've ever had a smoked oyster.

    Sometimes I just place the whole oyster on direct around 300-350 and when they loosen up I pop and eat.  Or you can pop them by hand and make a mixture of spinach, parmesan cheese, lemon juice and cook the half shell direct until they just start to curl. Or you can do like my friend Frank from Houma does.


    Oysters, Grilled, Drago, Charbroiled

    Charbroiled a few oysters tonight

    2-3 Dozen Oysters, 1/2 Shell
    2 Lbs Butter, Melted
    1/2 cup Chopped garlic,
    1 Tbs Black pepper, and
    1 Tbs Italian seasoning.
    Parmesan Cheese
    Parsley, Chopped


    1. Stabilized the egg at 250 dome and put the oysters on as fast I could then poured the butter mixture over them and closed the dome (flamed up pretty good just like you want it to). After a few minutes moved the oysters around to get the flames lickin the shells. When the were done loaded them up with grated parsesan, romano cheese and chopped parsley - closed the dome for about a minute to let the cheese melt. Paired with a bottle of La Famiglia Pinot Grigio - mighty fine.

    2. Saving the shells so the next time I can buy them already shucked.

    Recipe Type: Appetizer, Seafood
