Bourbon Smoked Oysters

Bourbon Smoked Oysters

Oysters are always a popular appetizer or first course to serve. These bourbon smoked oysters are even more special, with a touch of butter, whiskey, and hot sauce.

You can prepare these oysters on your smoker or a low heat grill. This recipe suggests alder wood chips, but use your favorite or what is on hand.

Ingredients

3 1/2 tablespoons sweet butter

2 tablespoons Bourbon whiskey

1 teaspoon chipotle hot sauce

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

12 oysters, in the shell

cocktail sauce, for serving

Equipment

smoker

alder wood chips

Recipe Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the bourbon, hot sauce, and lemon juice. Mix until well combined.

  2. Carefully pry open (shuck) the oysters using an oyster knife (wear a thick glove). Try to retain as much of the juices as possible.

  3. Scrape under the oyster to detach it from the shell. Leave the oyster on top of the bottom (cupped) shell with any retained juices.

  4. Place the shells on to the grate of a smoker set to 225 degrees F (107 degrees C) and/or a low heat grill. Add alder wood chucks to the fire.

  5. Spoon the bourbon-butter mixture on top of each of oyster.

  6. Cook until the oyster become firm, but still moist.

  7. Serve with cocktail sauce.
