Oyster Cookers

Oyster cooker designed by Oliver Thames, McClellanville

BBOYRO’s custom built wood-fired oyster cooker

A Lowcountry Tradition

The traditional way of cooking oysters in the South Carolina Lowcountry is to roast them over a wood fire, steamed under a wet burlap sack. This method has begun to disappear over the years as propane fueled steamers and other methods emerge. At Bulls Bay Oyster Roasts, we believe that nothing can compare to the smoky taste of a fire-roasted Bulls Bay Oyster. That’s why we have made it our mission to preserve wood-fired oyster roasts, and are proud to offer custom built oyster cookers of the highest quality and craftsmanship.

 Our Oyster Cookers


Remove the cooking table and the fire box becomes a fire pit that is easy to move & won’t scorch the grass

Our oyster cookers, designed by Lowcountry native Oliver Thames, are inspired by the age-old method for roasting oysters over a wood fire. The special design features three core pieces: the cooking table, the fire box, and the cooking pan.  The durable steel construction is portable and built to withstand high temperatures generated by a wood-fueled fire. The fire box eliminates the need for a fire pit, and safely contains the flames. The unique design of the cooking pan allows excess water to drain away so that you don’t lose one bit of the oysters’ natural salty flavor.


Enjoy the taste of roasted oysters that you can only get from cooking them over a wood fire

The design incorporates heavy duty handles for easy portability and handling. Throw a pile of oysters on top, cover with a wet burlap sack, and in a short time you have smoky, delicious oysters cooked in their own salty juices. No steamer can compare to that!
