Oyster Roast.

In early February we attended
an Oyster Roast, as we have for the
last 4 or 5 years.
Gotta have a hot fire to roast these bad boys.

You must have the oyster's cause they are
on the menue. Lots of oysters, yes.

The fire is hot; dump the oysters
on the iron plate.

Hose them down with water, then

Cover them with a wet burlap fabric.

Now comes the important part. You must
have an expert to check on the oysters
so you know when they are done. Two
experts are better than one.

When the shells pop open theyare done.
Now shovel them up and dump on tables.

There were probably over 200 people served
this past February 2011. See My next blog for
some more of the story.
Ya'll come now ya-hear!!

Have never had roasted oysters, but I suppose throw in a bit of spinach and sauce and you'd have Oyster Rockefeller... :)

That's what I call good old southern eating! We haven't done that in years.
