Mini Attacked by Lobster

In the end the mini won. Got this from Costco. Looked like it might be a spiny lobster from the straight tail. Not used to these as I usually take off that membrane from the underside of the tail. I had trouble with this as it didn't pull off in 1 nice piece as usual. Maybe I'll just leave it on next time. I usually do remove that and crack the tail to keep it from curling up. In any case this was a killer dinner. Very tasty lobster.

Here's what the little fella was up against.

After the flip.

Ready to come off.

Waiting for the sides. It's a steam bath here today in SW Ohio so I had to have a beer "on deck" while drinking another.

Done and ready to eat.

    LOL. Lost the gaskets on the first cook. On the mini the gaskets are a lot closer to the heat. No worries though I don't really do any low & slows on there. Maybe one day I'll slap a new set on.

    Chris, I love the perspective of that 'giant' lobster tail on the mini. If you find one that will fill my XLG please drive it up to Dayton! :lol: Yum. :)
