From the cookbook "Smokin". Some folks won't touch a raw oyster with a ten-foot pole, others won't eat them any other way. A third approach: smoke them lightly to keep their briny goodness and plump texture intact. If you like the heavy-smoked flavor and drier texture of canned smoked oysters, increase the wood to 2 1/2 tablespoons and the smoking time to 25 minutes. Use alder, corn cob or cherry wood chips.
