1 stick unsalted butter (softened)
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp minced fresh parsley
1 tbsp minced garlic
6 tbsp freshly grated Pecorino Romano (separated)
1 tbsp lemon juice
french bread
lemon wedges

Mix together butter, salt, pepper, cayenne, white pepper, parsley, garlic, lemon juice and 4tbsp romano

Heat a charcoal or gas grill until very hot. Place oysters on grill and let them cook in their own juices for 2 to 3 minutes, just until they start to bubble and the edges start to curl. Top each oyster with a generous amount of sauce, enough to fill the shell. Grill until the sauce around the edge of the shell starts to brown. Top with additional romano and garnish with parsley. Serve with grilled french bread and lemon wedges
