How exactly does one smoke this bile filter of the seas? Just sitting here picturing someone smoking an oyster is laughable.
Well, on this I actually agree with you, in part. It is absurd to smoke an Oyster. The Oyster is amongst most succulent and divine of foods, it is to be taken straight from the ocean, removed from its shell, and eaten raw and alive where you stand, marinated only in its own brine. It is a food that, for all our advances in the culinary arts, is impossible to improve upon. Its consumption in its natural state is a personal, emotional, sexual, spiritual, and culinary experience unlike any other. Sure, there maybe individual acts and foods that better excel at one of these characteristics, but none that combines them more fully.
