Ingredient Tips

Select fresh recently harvested live oysters. Don’t be afraid to ask when they were harvested to make sure that you are getting a fresh batch. Canned oysters won’t offer the same flavor or texture for this recipe and wouldn't offer natural protection against the heat of the grill.



Prepare your gas grill for indirect heat. Make a pouch with aluminum foil and place wood chips inside. Poke some holes and toss onto the hottest part of the grill. Allow the grill to smoke.

Hot Tip: A Char-Broil® Smoker Box is a nice alternative to the foil pouch.

Arrange the oysters on a transferable grill pan. Soak the burlap in water. When the grill is hot and smoke is billowing off of the wood chip packet (or box), place the grill pan over low heat. Cover with the burlap and allow to cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Carefully remove the bag and allow the oysters to cook.

Hot Tip: Keep an eye on your oysters, removing the burlap as needed. The oysters will begin to spring open.

Allow the oysters to cool until safe to handle. Using a butter-knife or proper oyster shucking tool, pop the oysters open. Separate the shells, leaving the meat of the oyster in half of the shell.


Cook the bacon in a skillet until crispy. Cool on a paper towel lined plate. Once cool, mince.


Combine the chopped parsley and cooked bacon in small bowl. Arrange the oysters back on the grill pan. Sprinkle each with the bacon parsley mix. Pour the butter evenly into each shell. Top with the panko and Parmesan cheese.


Place the pan back on the grill, or under a broiler. Cook until toasted.
