Smoked Oyster Recipe

This recipe does not use a whole lot of ingredients. I am a big believer in keeping the flavors basic to really let the smoke and the oyster be the star of the show. This recipe doesn't include a brine or marinade, instead of using the juice within the oyster, a little bit of butter, garlic, and hot sauce.

  • Smoker
  • Wire rack
  • Oyster shucking knife


  • 500 grams Butter
  • 1/2 Bunch Parsley
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 24 Oysters
  • Hot sauce to taste


  • Set up your smoker according to your manufacturer's instructions. Pre heat to 225°F.
  • Melt the butter over medium heat until melted. Mix in hot sauce to taste and finely chopped garlic and parsley.
  • Shuck your Oysters. Try to save as much of the liquid as possible.
  • Arrange your shucked oysters on a wire rack. Spoon over 1 - 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture over each oyster.
  • Once your smoker is burning clean smoke and sitting at 225°F put your oysters in. Smoke for 30 - 45 minutes or until the oysters have become firm and your desired texture.
  • Serve hot and eat straight away.
