Why slave over a hot stove to cook lobster when you can enjoy the outside while grilling – and it’s delicious!

  • live lobsters, 1 1/2 lbs each
  • butter melted with S & P, garlic, chopped herbs


Place each lobster shell side down on a flat surface and plunge a knife quickly into the midsection where the tail joins the body. Cut the lobsters in half lengthwise, head to tail. Remove and discard the sac inside the body. Crack the claws. Brush the lobster with the flavored butter and place shell side down on the grill. Cook for about 5 minutes. Turn and cook another 2 -3 minutes. Turn again and brush with butter. The meat should be white. You may need to close the hood and continue cooking. Serve with more herb butter.
