Cooking Oysters -- while camping

Produce Addict | Jul 29, 2006 12:29 AM

We are heading up to Canada next month and my guidebook recommends a spot to buy fresh oysters so as to roast them over hot coals. Well our (car camping) campground will have a fire pit so we can make a campfire, and we have a little propane burner. But we won't have a grill so charcoal is out. I love the idea of eating fresh oysters without having to learn how to shuck them (shucking seems really difficult). Can I cook 'em enough to have them open just using a frying pan on a burner? Or should I build a fire and use that?

Help is appreciated!
