    Grilled Lobster Tails

    This is only my second time grilling lobster tails but they turned out excellent and were much easier than I expected.

    I got a pack of lobster tails from Luke's Lobster and these were about 4 ozs each. I split them down the middle and butterflied them, gave them a hit of oil and a bit of salt.

    I loaded up my SNS on my SNS Kettle with a bit less than a chimney of charcoal and got some butter melted with some garlic and lemon zest, and lemon juice:

    I basted the lobster with the butter and cooked it flesh side down for about 2 minutes. After a couple minutes when the meat just started to get a bit of color I flipped them over and finished cooking until the meat was opaque and 135-140 degrees:

    I also grilled up some lemons to finish them off and got to eating!

    Luckily my kids weren't interested in lobster for lunch and stuck with their PB&J. My mom was over for lunch so between me, her, and my wife we finished these off in no time at all.

    I have come to the conclusion that I need to eat more lobster. Of course it won't be an every week type of thing but I need to do it a couple times a year rather than once every 5 years. Super easy, quick, and delicious.

      Nice. I grilled surf & turf this past weekend. Filets and lobster. But my tails weren’t as big as yours. Great job. Yum

          Spiny lobster season just started here, I might have to hit the Dockside Market on Saturday. I bet I can pull off something close to Puerto Nuevo style lobster with the vortex.

            I love me some grilled lobster. And you know I love that butter in the cast iron pan!

            Nice work man!

              Grilled Lobster Tails are the BOMB!!!

              I will split my tails completely in half so the flesh will actually sit in the grill completely to give a touch more char.

              Also if you never have tried it, make some home made lemonade with grilled lemon halves. It is great for making some adult beverages!
