Here you go Russ - this is from Dragos in New Orleans - The originator of the charbroiled oyster.

8 ounces (2 sticks) softened butter
2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch dried oregano
1 1/2 dozen large, freshly shucked oysters on the half shell
1/4 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheeses, mixed
2 teaspoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Heat a gas or charcoal grill. In a medium bowl, mix butter with garlic, pepper, and oregano.
Place oysters on the half shell right over the hottest part. Spoon enough of the seasoned butter over the oysters so that some of it will overflow into the fire and flame up a bit.
The oysters are ready when they puff up and get curly on the sides, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan and Romano and the parsley on top. Serve on the shells immediately with hot French bread.

Man I'm drooling reading the recipe, man I'd wolf down 2 dozen on my own. I treat myself occasionally as wife hates all sea food.
Our oysters are from bluff at the bottom of the South Island, about $30 dozen. You live well. :D

I'm not a big fan of oysters, but these look fantastic!! I would certainly put down a couple!
