Light a chimney full of lump charcoal. When the charcoal is hot, dump in one half of the PK Grills PK300AF.


Place the diced bacon in a small cast iron pot on the grill. Cook the bacon until crispy, stirring occasionally.


At the same time, grill the green onions with the lid open, just until lightly charred. Remove from the grill and mince finely.

Shuck the oysters, discarding the flat half of the shells.

Dollop 1-2 tsp room temperature Cajun Bacon Butter on top of each oyster.
