i've always heard you could do this, and had experimented with the

method for years but never had any success. then i went to a farm to 

table banquet one night to give a small presentation on my farm, and 

the chef pulled it off, big time. after the meal i asked her how she did 

it, and she responded "i just brushed them with olive oil, sprinkled with 

sea salt, and baked them at 500 for 10 minutes." she served them 

over polenta, with a little bit of locally produced mozzarella cheese and

a basil/olive oil purée


i will be giving this a try today, so hopefully it works the same way in

my gas oven that it did in the electric she was using. anyone else have

oyster mushroom recipes that end with bacon flavor?

you could replace the olive oil with bacon renderings


I don't know that this does work but just had the idea. How about combining a cook on the grill with bacon cooking on the grill  at the same time? It might smoke the shrooms with bacon flavor
