    1. Chargrilled oysters. I will really have to give some thought about 2-10. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Hmmm.
    1.  Huevos Rancheros (green) from the "Little Anita's" chain in Albuquerque
    2.  Beef brisket (my own)
    3.  Sushi
    4.  Mom's goulash (not hungarian, macaroni/beef/tomato/spices)
    5.  A smoked whitefish mousse wrapped in thin sheets of smoked salmon, from "The Browns" restaurant in Picadilly Circus, London, and all the accoutrements (tied for best single meal I've ever had)
    6.  #8 Phò, Kim Long restaurant, Layton UT (just learned they survived 'Rona Wave 1, will be visiting tomorrow or Sat!)  
    7.  Paella (a treat not suitable for single eaters, sadly...)
    8.  Hot-n-Sour Soup, Little China, Beavercreek OH
    9.  A Turkish dish, in Ankara: wonderful toasted bread halves, set in front of you, ladled with melted butter, a huge pile of shaved lamb, a red sauce, and a bit more melted butter (the other tie for best single meal I've ever had).  Wish I could remember its name...
    10. Alder plank smoked salmon, both Seattle and here.  
     
    I will think of more, and re-arrange, tomorrow.

    How do you roast your oysters? I have a KBQ and roasted oysters sound awesome

    @Dawgtired I'll see if I can come up with it. I really don't think it's any different than what you could probably find online. I remember trying it as a kid and falling in love with it. My mom usually makes it on special occasions. So I'm sure the sentimental value is much higher for me with the dish as it would be to anyone else. I'll track it down either way and post it.

    @Dawgtired I’ve tried several recipes. I’m a fan of oysters Rockefeller. The main thing the wood oven does over the egg is the heat from a robust fire rolls over the top of the oysters to broil the top. On a grill the heat is from the bottom. In my opinion it makes a significant difference in the way the oyster turns out.
