Do you need more info about Clausen "Silver Point" oysters? Here you go. I recommend a visit if you're in their neighborhood. Tell them Charlie says "Hello," from Santa Rosa, CA, the maker of BBQ Oyster Grill shellfish cooking racks.
Where in Oregon is Clausen's Oysters? It's easy to find as you drive down the beautiful Oregon coast.
I stopped by their retail outlet. Their market and processing area is very appealing. They also prepare and sell shucked oysters by the quart/gallon. I asked for a dozen small oysters, and I got 15. Very generous. As you can see, Clausen's Silverpoint "smalls" are "medium" by other's standards. The shellfish cooking rack makes it easy to move oysters from your kitchen to your grill.
Here are the Clausen Silverpoints shucked, nice, fat, healthy oysters filling the shell. They have strong shells that don't break in half as you shuck them. They are well washed, which makes shucking them a pleasure. The prongs on the shellfish cooking rack hold the oysters upright making it easier to work with them.
I carried the oysters to my grill (previously heated) using a 1/2 sheet pan, and set them on the grill. I decided to create a new recipe, BBQ Oysters with Pork Jowl Bacon and Cheddar.
I cooked them until all the oysters were all bubbling in the oyster liquor. Then, I dumped the remaining liquid and add a 1/4 Tsp of bacon fat to each oyster making sure that the oysters were not sticking to the shell. Next, I added a few pieces of Hog Jowl Bacon to each oyster. What is Hog Jowl Bacon? http://hopandhogbbq.com/SitePages/Photos_HogJowlBacon.html … #hogjowlbacon
Next, I added the cheddar cheese and little grind 3-Peppers--Black, Grains of Paradise, and Tasmanian Pepper Berries. #nola Let the oysters cook for a while to blend the flavors of oysters, bacon, pepper, and cheese.
Let's eat! BBQ Oysters w/ Hog jowl bacon and cheddar. I removed the rack full of BBQ oysters from the grill and placed it back on the 1/2 sheet pan. I serve the oysters right off the rack.
