Grilled Maine lobster experiment tonight..

I picked up a couple of lobsters from a local philanthropic fund raiser event this morning.  They fly the lobsters into the local regional airport the morning of distribution.  It's an order ahead thing.

Anyway, gonna try this recipe.  Will add results later..

These little buggers are lively, so hopefully I can pin them well enough to cut 'em straight.   ;)

    I would boil up some water and give 'em a head first dive to kill 'em then do the split.  Not like there's a whole lot of lobster to consume head-wise.  But I'm from bourbon country so factor that into the deal.  ;)

    To say that is a beautiful dish, is not giving enough credit. What a perfect combination

    That is an electric chair meal....looking good Eric!
  • Thanks for the compliments!  Next time, I think I'll break the claws off and start them a few minutes early.  I ended up having to hit those in a tray of water in the oven to finish them..  Otherwise, it was outstanding, if I do say so myself..  ;-)
  • Wow! Everything on that plate looks superb.

    Nothing to take away from your cook ( it was fantastic )  but a little off topic .  My wife and daughter visited friends from Maine, they went down to the docks and got several lobsters just out of the ocean for 2 bucks each.  My wife doesn't do seafood, but said that is the best she has ever eaten. 
    Live fast. die young, and leave a well marbled corps. 
  • @bucky925 Agreed, it can be pretty astonishing how inexpensive lobster is at the source.  My wife and I did a Maine tour/vacation before we had kids, and were amazed at how affordable it was to eat lobster rolls for lunch and steamed lobster for dinner every day for a week!  Beautiful region to boot..
