I love oysters. Raw on the halfshell for me.
Not that crazy about steamed.

I have to admit that I've never had them smoked, but I'll bet they're off the HOOK! They sure LOOK tasty!:thumb:

Yeah you could say we have a "private selection" ..... aka swining' beef, Wyoming tendergroins, deep fried danglers, bull bobs, and some hot varieties like great balls of fire.

thirdeye’s Smoked Oysters


1 pint of oysters, shucked
Lite Brine
Garlic pepper
Olive oil spray
Olive oil (the good stuff)
Steamer (I use a steamer rack in a small skillet with a glass cover)
Smoker
Alder flavor wood
Cherry flavor wood
----------
thirdeye’s Lite Brine for Seafood
1 quart of spring water
.875 ounce of sea salt
1 tablespoon of white sugar
Mix salt and sugar into cool water until dissolved. You may use warmed water, but it will have to be chilled down before using.
------------
Rinse the oysters at least 3 or 4 times in cold water to remove any sand and shell particles. Brine the oysters for 2 hours in a non-reactive container in the refrigerator, rinse again and drain.

Steam oysters until the internal temperature is 150° to 155°. They will plump up and the gills will flair slightly. This will only take 5 to 6 minutes.

Remove oysters to a rack over some paper towels and blot dry. Lightly spray with olive oil, and season with a sprinkle of garlic pepper on both sides. Place in refrigerator for at least an hour, two hours is better

Prepare smoker for a low hot smoke, 100° to 125° using alder and cherry flavor wood, and smoke for 3 hours. Try to keep the smoker temp below 150°. Then ramp up the smoker temp to 225° - 250° to allow the oysters to finish off with an internal temperature of 150° to 160°. They will darken a bit from the cherry. You might have to pull the smaller ones off sooner.

Sample one or two and determine if you want to add a few drops of good olive oil before chilling.


Here is what they look like after steaming and seasoning
