|This is another method of serving oysters that my father learned from Jack London. It also uses Anchor_Steam_Beer as well as a lot of finely chopped garlic.
Fresh live oysters in the shell
Finely minced garlic
Anchor Steam beer
Salt and pepper and favorite hot sauce
Scrub the shells of the oysters with a stiff brush under cold running water. Discard any that are open and do not close when you tap the shell. Place the oysters, on a rack over the glowing coals of a barbecue. Leave until they just begin to open. Using tongues, remove them and with an oyster knife, pry the shells the rest of the way open. Place the oyster in the deep half of the shell. Add a pinch of minced garlic and a bit of beer. Add salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste and return to the barbecue and continue cooking to desired degree of doneness. SPECTACULAR!
