Oysters on the Kettle
 
Here are some pics from a trip down to South Carolina with some family and friends. Rained all day so we figured we would cook some oysters up. We picked up two bushels of cluster oysters down at the market, some charcoal, and a burlap sack from the coffee shop.

Fired it up, cleaned them off and soaked the burlap. They had just a light smokey flavor from the liquor burning off on the steel. Briny and clean taste.

Turned a blah day at the beach into a great memory.

Those look great. I friend of mine's dad is from up your way, Statesville, and always has to have oysters when he's down here. Its just a good time standing around the grill with some beers and shucking.

He** yeah, that's what it's about!!:hail:

Wish we could get decent oysters up here...
Plan on gorging myself on some next week in NOLA.

Thanks for sharing!:thumb:

Help me out with the burlap bag over the grill...? Is it there to simply keep the heat on the oysters cooking under it?

The burlap heats up and creates steam while hold in the heat around the oysters. They are not all in contact with the steel on the grill so they need that steam to evenly cook. It also keeps the steel from getting too hot. We just soak it in a 5 gallon bucket between batches. Save the burlap and re-use next time.

Oh and that is not a grill grate the oysters are sitting on. It is a sheet of stainless.

Gotta love those blue oyster knives, they are definitely my favorite for the clusters. They are made in Greenville SC. Love that y'all did them with burlap, it's way better than steaming them in a pot!
