  1. Are you talking BBQ oysters or Char Broil oysters done over a grill?

    I have never had BBQ oysters in the sense you seem to be speaking of, (in a sauce like BBQ shrimp?)

    If you are looking for char broil oysters done on a grill, Drago's made it famous, but there are others doing it.

    I am not a fan of it, so I can't recall right now who else does it, but I am sure someone will help you out on that one.

      Yes....done in a sauce like BBQ shrimp.
      Somehow it strikes me that the liquid from the oysters
      combined with the sauce would be REALLY tasty.....
      Someone, somewhere must be doing them.....
      maybeI'll get lucky and someone will be able to help me out.

        Uglesich's has a barbecued oyster entree that is quite good - far superior to Pascal's Manale BBQ Shrimp, IMHO

          Great....I'll plan to give them a try ....

            Maybe I've been away too long, but I thought the rule was "no oysters in months without an R." That would eliminate May...and while we are thinking food, has anyone been to Dooky Chase? Would welcome information regarding menu and safety of area, parking etc. please.

              Hi Nolemom
              Please refer to my comments a bit down the page under "do we still live in New Orleans" ref 2. This is only one person's opinion, mine. Someone answered my comment with an E-mail chat acronym but I'm too stupid to know where it was positive or negative!! Anyhoo, I'll never go back there again.
              Good eating,

                  That was me.
                  I hope you didn't think of it as some joke at your expense. Honestly, your post was one of the funniest that I've ever read on Chowhound. Largely due to the fact that (I think) you were not intending to be funny. That bit about the woman in the road...

      2. This isn't by the lake, but it'll be worth your drive: try the garlic oysters at Liuzza's by the Track -- fried oysters in a lemony garlic butter. Or,if you are thinking about charbroiled ones, Zeke's on Metairie Road is doing a good job.
