How to Shuck Oysters

Knowing how to shuck is truly a game-changer for oyster lovers. My hope is that you all will master (or at least try) this surprisingly handy technique. This how-to will definitely help you get started with the basics, but also know that there are other ways to go about it as well. Whatever your style is, practice makes perfect. I think I had to shuck about 200 or so before I really got the hang of them.
