    Man, I love to cut their shells down the back and then just grill them direct.  To eat, clarify some butter and get your face all greasy.   Compliment with a ribeye steak.

    Sarge,

    There was a method called dwell in the shell if you want to search it. It was a good sear with the meat down and then flip and add butter and cook to temp. Can't remember times

    I'm with VI on this one.  Keep it simple.

    I use kitchen shears to cut the top of the shell lengthwise to the tail, pull the meat out and place it on top, still attached.  You can then pull out the vein, sop some garlic butter on it and put in on the grill, leg side down at about 400.  Cook for about 8-10 minutes, sop with more garlic butter (be careful, it will flame up if you use too much), flip and cook meat side down for about 2-4 minutes to give it just a little grid mark and you'll be done.  Make enough garlic butter so you'll have plenty for dipping.  If you have a metal bowl, you can set it on the edge of the grate while cooking to keep it from solidifying.  Time for the first part will depend on the size, but be careful not to overcook.  Link to TFM Recipe: http://www.thefreshmarket.com/recipes/recipes_details_review.aspx?RecipeID=269

    One tip:  If you use a heavy chef's knife to split the tails lengthwise, as I do, put the tail on the cutting board right-side-up, so the flat bottom of the tail is on the cutting board.
     
    After typing it out, that seems blindingly obvious, but my first tail I tried to cut bottom-side-up and almost lost my grip.

    Cut the tails in half.  Put on the grill shell side down with butter and a little seafood seasoning on the meat.  Cook until shell is red.  Depends on size for time, don't overcook.  Turn over and cook meat side down for about 1 or 2 min,  Done  Enjoy

    Thanks for all the tips...I did find the "Dwell in the Shell" recipe here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/4561485/The-BIG-GREEN-EGG-Recipe-Book and am going to try that cooking method.  Right now they are in the fridge marinating in a little olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, and paprika. Grill is beginning to come to temp...can't wait!
