  • Dozen oysters, shucked
  • 1 bunch of green onions, chopped
  • 8 oz shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/4 C seasoned bread crumbs
  • Your favorite BBQ Sauce. We recommend Meat Mitch.
Compound Butter Ingredients (Optional - you can use a high quality butter such as Banner Butter or a store bought European\Irish butter if you don't want to make compound butter.)
  • 1 lb butter, unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Meat Church The Gospel or Honey Hog BBQ Rub
  • ½ bunch of green onions minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


Prepare your Grill
Prepare your grill at a temperature of 400.

Prepare the Compound Butter

Allow the butter to soften. Combine butter, garlic, onion and BBQ Rub thoroughly.

Lay the butter on parchment paper or plastic wrap. Roll it up to form a log and tie each end with butcher’s twine. Place in the freezer for an hour to solidify. You can use this butter on any grilled meats to enhance the flavor.

Prepare the Oysters

Shuck the oysters keeping all of the brine in the shell. Also known as oyster liquor or juice.

Grill the Oysters
Sprinkle the oysters with bread crumbs and place directly on the grill. Cook them for 4 minutes. You will be looking for the edge of the oyster to start to curl slightly.

After 4 minutes place a spoonful of butter in the oysters.
