Recipe Notes

  • Yield: Makes 24
  • Equipment: Best of Barbecue Shellfish Rack


Recipe Steps

Step 1: Set up your grill for direct grilling and preheat to medium.

Step 2: Meanwhile, shuck the oysters using a shucking knife, taking care not to spill the juices. Discard the top shell and arrange the oysters in the shellfish rack. Top each with 2 teaspoons barbecue sauce, grated cheese, a sprinkle of barbecue rub, and a splash of hot sauce (if using).

Step 3: Place the rack with the oysters on the grill and lower the grill lid. Grill the oysters until just cooked and the cheese and sauce are melted and bubbling, 3 to 5 minutes.
