Rinse  lightly under warm water, pat dry.

Place  on rack and air dry for 1 hour.

Hot smoke at 225° for 50 - 70 minutes until almost dry checking frequently.  Do not overcook or they will be chewy.

If you plan to can your oysters, prepare as above, but rather than hot smoking, cold smoke for 45 minutes then can using proper canning instructions.

Cool that's for the post.  I will give it a try.  Oyster season opens in a few days.  I think sister lake opens this or next weekend.  We still need a cold front to get them good and salty.

That looked so terrific! I love raw oysters and raw clams even more, but those smoked ones of yours looked absolutely amazing!!!!!! Cheers! - Leah
