Default stainless steel oyster shells = awesome

i CAN'T WAIT to use these....

http://sosoystershells.com/




they seem to be a bit on the pricey side (maybe), but i haven't found a better alternative to these yet.

i started with a dozen, but i can see 2 or 3 more dozen in the near future.

i undertand that rouses grocery stores now carry these as well.

I've never grilled oysters so I gotta ask.....


What's wrong with using the "au natural" shells?
Or is it so you can cook shucked oysters in without having to get the whole ones?

IF i were shucking them, i'd grill them in the shells, but my bro-in-law is a seafood broker, so i don't open oysters.


sorry about the fuzzy.

If I got them they'd wind up next to the yellow plastic corn on the cob butter boats to be left, unused, as well...

Makes sense, but as far as the sanitary thing goes....I gotta wonder if the natural oyster shells are any less sanitary than the raw oysters I love so much?


Still.....seems a lot easier to work with.
Now if I can only get anyone in my family to want to try them.
OR get nice fresh oysters here in "land locked" Indiana.....

these are cool and all, but I charbroil oysters all the time. At my weekend gig we've got a woodfired pizza oven, typically runs 700-800 degrees all day long. We also do raw oysters, so opening them up "sanitarily" is one of our specialties. They won't sit flat on a broil dish, so what I do is use rock salt. bury them in there slightly, butter, garlic breadcrumbs little parmesan, goodness in a shell.

i had thought about digging around the shores and trying to find some shells that were uniform in size and then i said fark that after talking to a few guys who did that very thing.

i like the size of these things and i'm pretty sure i'll get more use out of them than deguerre does his corn butter holder things.

to be more clear, i didn't buy these because sanitation is an issue to me, i bought them because of the size and the fact that i don't have to go dig in the bay for them.

Pretty much same boat I'm in.

I am lucky enough to be in an area to have fresh oysters readily available. One of my buddies get them each cook out at her house and we always just roast them in shell. Shucking is easy since the oysters are done when they open.

I can have a sack of oysters opened for $10 plus wholesale cost of the sack.

I can't get fresh oysters very often here but the store usually carries shucked ones. These SS shells might work ok for individual servings. I can get several shucked ones in a pie pan but individual servings would be nice sometimes.

Well, you know, Memphis isn't exactly the Mecca of fresh oysters, after all...
