I got a peck of fresh N.C. Oysters and decided to try smoking them. After shucking them, I "blanched" them by putting them in a strainer then setting that in boiling water for 1 minute, then setting them in an ice bath to stop the cooking. I read somewhere that this would firm them up a bit. I put them back on the half shell then sprinkled some Paul Prudhomme seafood spice on them.
