Updated Jun 3, 2011


  • 24 to 36 littleneck clams
  • 1 bottle beer


  • 1
    Heat gas grill. Wash clams one at a time, scrubbing lightly to remove sand from outside.
  • 2
    Set grill-proof pan (camping pan or cast iron pan) on grill rack. Pour beer into pan.
  • 3
    Place clams on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; steam clams 5 minutes. Check and remove any clams that are wide open. Cover grill; continue steaming 5 minutes longer or until all clams have opened wide. Serve immediately.
