I just read a few posts on oysters at the fine dining board and now gots the big time oyster cravings. Only (and a big only it is) thing is I live in the midwest, near St. Louis and so far I've never felt comfortable with purchasing them from the supermarket, especially after living in Boston and in San Francisco where I knew they were always fresh.

Ssometimes I order them at restaurants and they're satisfactory, not great, but I was wondering if any of you also living in the midwest states ever buy raw oysters? I'd like to have them for appetizers (hell, right now I'd like to have them for an entire meal) and I'd also like to make them my favorite way: BBQ'd on the grill. Is there a way to verify that they're fresh and non-contaminated?
