Ingredients

16 whole live oysters
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper flakes (or substitute with dashes of Tabasco)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cracked black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon finely minced parsley

Instructions 

1. Heat a small sauce pan over medium-low heat
2. When hot add olive oil and butter
3. Add garlic and saute until fragrant about 30 seconds
4. Add lemon juice, chili flakes, salt, pepper and parsley Turn off heat
5. Shuck oysters spoon a little sauce in each oyster
6. Place oysters on a very hot, preheated grill
7. Cover and cook for 5-6 minutes or until the edges of oysters curl slightly
8. If you can't shuck
9. Place oysters cup side up on very hot preheated grill cover cook for 1 minute
10.The oysters should now be slightly open. Quickly remove the oysters
11.Hold an oyster with an oven mitt and use a shucking knife (or a clean screwdriver if you don't have one) to pry open the oyster. It should easily open
12.Spoon sauce into each oyster and return oysters to the grill.
13.Cover and grill 4-5 minutes
Note:
If you can find large, fat oysters, you can place the oysters directly on the grill grates
It's best to wear long BBQ gloves so you can handle the oysters by hand instead of using tongs, spoons or spatula.
However, if the oysters are small and flat, you'll run the risk of spilling its valuable juices as well as the garlic-butter sauce
You can place the oysters on a bed of rock salt or rice in a small pan and then placing the entire pan inside the grill
This steadies the oysters and prevents them from wobbling
