With all the salvaging and remodeling, we like to treat ourselves to some of the wonderful seafood from The Pacific Ocean and nearby Willapa Bay. Our house is situated on the Long Beach peninsula which is a long strip of land surrounded by salt and fresh water similar to Long Island, NY. Last night we made smoked oysters by cooking them on direct heat then popping open the shells with one side placed on the indirect heat for several hours of smoke. The combination of Alder and mesquite wood was fabulous as was the combination of Louisiana hot sauce and melted butter for dip! Great recovery from a long day of DIY.
