I love oysters and always enjoy making lots of different dishes while they are in season. Oysters are best eaten when the water is cold, and the rule of thumb is to eat them during months with the letter “R” in them.
I picked up some oysters to cook on the smoker, but the weather was rainy and I was really craving them. I looked around and found some left over barbecue rub from when I made ribs, and decided a tasty appetizer would really hit the spot.
If I ever open a restaurant, this is going to be on the menu. I can’t begin to describe how good these tangy, spicy, barbecued beauties taste.
The secret is the homemade BBQ rub. The flour and spices are cooked in fryer and the taste is enhanced by the bacon which is wrapped tightly around the oyster.
