Langostos Gordos (Fat Lobsters)

I traditionally steam a couple of lobsters for a romantic Valentines Day supper. Sometimes I even share with Sydney.... seriously, though folks, I definitely want to try them on the egg this year. Any suggestions re cooking time and temp after euthenizing the poor critters? I would think they could go on direct. I usually get lobbies that are about 1.25-1.5 lbs each - any bigger and they get kind of tough. Many thanks!

    <p />Cornbread Willy, a while back (01/2000), Houndog posted the recipe at the link. I wish I could say that I've tried it (wife doesn'tr really like lobster), but the recipe/method sounded good enough to keep and I know that someday I'll give it a try. The picture is from the original post.[p]Anyone know where Houndog is?[p]Life is GOOD! :~}

    <p />Cornbread Willy,
    I tried houndog's "dwell in the shell method" and it came out ok. I recommend smoking them with a small amount of cherry wood and basting them with a garlic lemon butter. I cook mine at around 250 degrees or so. The first pic was dwell in the shell, the other pics are my standard cherry smoking.

  • Gfw,
    Wow that sounds good. Not sure I can wait until Friday. Any reason to think that the cook method/time would be any different with a whole body as opposed to just the tail? I don't, but if anyone has an opinion on that I'd welcome it. Wonder where he gets that green chile powder??? Yum.

    Cornbread Willy,
    When I do Houndog's recipe, I use whole lobsters, and disassemble them before cooking. After knockin' them off with a knife to the head, I remove the claws and the body....then cook the claws around the outter edge of the grill.[p]Houndog makes green chile powder himself, and I was a lucky recipient of some a couple years back. Yum is right![p]Beers!
