  1. Shuck oysters.
  2. Place oysters on a thick bed of rock salt on a baking pan *The rock salt is to keep the oysters fit snug and upright on the baking sheet so all the juices don't fall out when cooking them.
  3. Mix together sliced bacon, worcestershire sauce, ketchup, lemon juice and hot sauce
  4. Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce to each oyster shell, then top with bacon mixture.
  5. Broil on high on upper middle baking rack for 10 minutes or until bacon is browned and crispy. (Go a couple minutes longer if you would like your oysters cooked for longer)
