Just a touch of smoke is enough to enhance some great fresh oysters.
Difficulty 2/5 Prep Time 15 MIN Cook Time 5 MIN Serves 2-4


6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 bunch of green onions, very thinly sliced
1 teaspoon Sherry vinegar
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons Tabasco® sauce
2 dozen oysters on the half shell


  1. In a skillet, melt 2 Tbsp of butter. Add green onions and cook over moderate heat, stirring until softened and lightly browned,
    for approximately 8 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and transfer to a bowl. Cool. Stir in the garlic, lemon juice and Tabasco® sauce.
  2. Soften the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and combine thoroughly with the onion mixture. Season with salt (this mixture can
    be made ahead).
  3. Light the Broil King® Keg and adjust the settings for a constant temperature of 350°F (177°C). Replace the cooking grids.
    Shuck the oysters immediately before grilling. Place a dollop of the butter mixture on each oyster.
  4. Place the oysters on the grids and close the lid. Cook until just cooked through and the butter is melted about 5 minutes. Serve right away. A bed of kosher salt can help prevent spilling and enhance the presentation.
