Stopping at the grocery store Thurs nite on our way to camping. I want to pick up some little neck clams and cook them on the grill. Never done this before so I figure low heat and cook slow. Has anyone else done seafood on the grill? Any tips, suggestions or recipes? Trying to get "out of the box" on our cooking. We tend to make the same things over and over.
Living on Long Island, clams are 2nd nature...
Step in the water, dig up two clams, slam them together to crack the shell and slurp away...
BBQ is the great... Simple place clams on grate and remove them as they open...sometimes we just stand around the grill taking turns removing the clams as they are ready...
Good clams need only lemon, but tobassco adds a nice kick..
Do oysters on the grill all the time. Set them 'cup' side down. When they open add favorite topping. BBQ sause, garlic butter, lemon, or dill butter. Of course if you like them raw like I do it is one for the grill, one raw. Clams I like steamed (or sauted). Likewise one for the pot one raw.

great ideas all! We had oysters last year for the very first time (that weren't fried). What we had were baked and then some roasted. Haven't had the nerve for raw. We are always on the look out for places that have them. Being able to do it ourselves would be awesome if we can find them.
