Sweet Summer: How To Barbecue Oysters


With the last few weeks of summer slipping away, we recommend you take some time to enjoy a relaxing afternoon barbecuing oysters. This delicious step-by-step guide will show you everything you need to know to prepare barbecued oysters at home. 

Here’s a list of supplies:

  • Barbecue or fire pit with grate
  • Oyster knife, gloves and tongs
  • Butter
  • Hot sauce
  • Lemon
  • WhiteStone oysters.

Here’s what to do:

  1. To prep, heat your grill and melt your butter.
  2. Place the oysters on the barbecue with the cupped side down.
  3. The oysters will open on their own. If needed, use your oyster knife to pry them open a little more and separate the muscles.
  4. To serve, remove the top shell and add butter and hot sauce to taste.

We recommend roughly 7-10 oysters per guest as an appetizer. You can serve them straight off the grill (let them cool a bit!) or before your main course.
