  • 1/2 dozen of fresh oysters shucked
  • 1/4 cup of parsley finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • 2 tbsp of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp of sea salt
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Ice
  1. Shuck oysters and place on some ice until ready to grill.
  2. Use some Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal to light fire and let burn for 10-15 minutes. Once charcoal is white hot, push into one flat pile for direct grilling.
  3. In a sauce pan or skillet, melt butter and add parsley (save a little for garnish!), Parmesan cheese, garlic powder black pepper, sea salt, and a dash (or more) of hot sauce. Let sizzle until fully melted and mixed. Pull off once done.
  4. Using a spoon, add butter sauce inside the already shucked oysters until they are close to being full.
  5. Place oysters onto white hot coals. Let cook for 3-4 minutes. Make sure to use protective gloves as the shells with be very hot. Be careful of flare ups as well!
  6. Pull oysters off, and let cool for 2 minutes. Garnish with parsley & Parmesan cheese.
