    John H Ellis,
    Local (New Orleans) resturant does excellent charbroiled oysters. Basically opens them, put over open flames, lets them cook in their own, natural liquid and then douses with a garlic, butter and herb sauce. Pretty simple but don't think it lends itself to the Egg.

    I think as much for effect as anything else. Makes a grand display. Plus it gives the oyster a little something else to cook in.

    Shelby,[p]I tried duplicating Drago's charbroiled oysters about a year ago and I used:
    ½ Real Butter
    ½ Margarine
    ½ Romano Cheese
    ½ Parmesan Cheese
    Minced Garlic
    Black Pepper[p]They were great!!!

    Shelby,[p]Its midnight and I am attempting my first pulled pork. I have been cooking it for 4 hours @ 250°F and it is at 158°F - I think I might have a Turbo Butt!! Anyway, to answer your question, I plan on doing yard work and eating PP until I pop tomorrow. How about yourself?[p]I would like to clarify my earlier posting on the oysters. A local native told me that this is how Drago’s does their oysters; however, I do not have the exact amount of each ingredient. I mix the Garlic and Black pepper in the melted 50/50 margarine/butter mixture. I spoon this over the oysters after they have started cooking. Next, I sprinkle the cheese mixture over them a few minutes before they are readly to come off (this keeps the flaming down). The two times I have done these they were great! How do you do yours?[p]Time to go check the butt... I think I might have over done the mesquite chips, last weekend I found some mesquite lump in Mobile and I used a few pieces along with some regular chunks. I think I should have just used one or the other….[p]Now it is really time to go check the butt….
