And you will be too when you try these grilled clams with preserved lemons and jalapeños! http://barbecuebible.com/2013/08/05/clam-meets-grill/#.UgAnMhY5vlI. What's YOUR favorite shellfish to grill?

I like the sound of that recipe but with jalapenos it'd never go over in my house; fortunately there are lots of other ways to grill clams. I just have to make the drive into Madison to find some.

But the real question is, who here doesn't know what The Twist is? :lol:

I'd have to say char grilled oysters a la Drago's in New Orleans. Haven't perfected it, but got it down pretty close. That or mussels.

We mostly grill shrimp with the occasional lobster tail. We've never really been into clams, oysters or mussels.

So are clams mostly a northern Atlantic/Pacific product? When it comes to southern waters, especially on the east coast and in the Gulf, it seems like the focus is mostly on oysters.

Although I did see an episode of "Mexico: One Plate at a Time" where they were harvesting "chocolate" clams (named from the color of the shell, I presume) from the Gulf of California.

Isn't The Twist that new Rosie O'Donnell show? :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

We ain't that far apart - meet in the middle - families back to one of our houses - you and me to the other.
They can eat their bland stuff - we'll do these clams, I'd be good for 4 or 5 ... dozen! How about you?
I know where to get clams, oysters, mussels, etc around my house. Plus we can always play around with one or more of my goofy experiments that usually turn out pretty good.
You can even bring the guy from Madison, but only if he walks or hitchhikes to Stoughton. No fair, and not sporting, if he drives to your house or the I90 exit where you meet up. :mrgreen:
