            I would have to assume that you would dispatch the crustacean prior to smoking. Otherwise that would be one hell of a slow torturing death 💀.

            In general, I have procured several tails per cook from my local grocer's meat/seafood section, split spinal side of their exoskeleton's open with some kitchen shears, lightly added melted butter, an' seasonin's, prior to smokin'...

            (Y'all can use infused olive oil, etc., if preferred.) Haven't tried bacon grease, yet, but it is an option I'm considerin...

            Old Bay works good here, as does my own, or likely, most Cajun seasonin's...SPG jus' fine, too, especially good fresh of each...

            I smoke 'em indirect on a weber kettle, most often, easier to control temps since that SnS thingie came along, but did it fer decades before, so please,don't think it cain't be done without...

            I jus' cut mine open, so th' meat can absorb some smoke; some kinda split th' whole tail, spatchcock like, when they grill tails, but I think this would remove too much moisture, smokin' indirect, lower, slower, like I do.

            Often, I have moved th' tails closer to th' direct area, as they look ready...get a lil, wee bit of sear/char up on 'em.

            I'm lookin' fer an IT of 135...

            Lobster tail is very light, flaky, an' absorbs a good bit of smoke, so I'd start with a lower fire, small amount of wood chunks/chips, an' work gently towards yer preferred flavour profile...

            I generally use one chunk*, right on th' lit chimley poured in...Apple works well, as does peach, mulberry...Also done hickory, an' mesquite, delicious, but watch how much ya' use...

            I run my kettle 225°-250°~ish fer this, since th' tails are very removed from direct area, with large cross section initially toward direct heat source...

            I check them fairly often, maybe rotate each check, kinda depends on how they look...often, I baste/mop with more herbed melted butter

            Total time, mebbe minus 45 to 60 mins. Keep a watch; post an internal probe, if ya wish...
            Let 'em rest a few don't hurt, neither.

            Well, there's a brief primer to what I know...

            Please, let me know if ya' want any more from my poor brain, but: lotsa other, likely better stuff out there, a mouse click away

            *^Chunk^, here in my world, is roughly a 3"cube or wedge, when I process wood fer my lil' KBB burner fellers...

            Thanks for the tips! I may give it a try but my lobster is alive when I get them. I'll have to think about it. (BTW yall don't need the ' thing where I come from, we get it)

              Yep, but, ya' see...
              One time, I ordered a hundred asterisks from offa Amazon, fer a paper I was doin'...
              Well, they sent me 10,000,000, at th' same price, an' refused return on them...
              Unnerstood not needed where I'm from, or yerself...
              But, also can do some real global good here, with 'em, like learnin' folks th' difference between y'all, ya'all, all ya'all, an you'uns!

              I think that more than half the time we have lobster (formerly from Mass), I kill them and section them up, so we can make them different ways. Best way I know is a sharp knife into the area behind the eyes (there's a cross there), blade facing towards the front, then down through the head/face. Don't worry if they flip around for a while - they're dead, it's just reflex.

              I pretty much have done it the way CandySueQ describes, on the grill. Never tried smoking but it would be the same technique. Just don't over cokk or smoke them or you end up with rubber bands.

            Personally I think they're great to cook on the grill, but not so much smoke. The thick crust makes it hard for the smoke to get through. I cook mine like HawkerXP, so fresh!

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill

            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
