    <p />Crustacean King,
    does anyone besides me think it's funny the crustacean king is asking how to cook lobtsa? heheh, sorry, but it's funny![p]time will depend on the size of your tails and whether or not you split them in half. i recommend splitting them so you can see the meat cook and the shell forms a butter boat.
    temp should be somewhere between 300 and 350 and use a raised grid for direct setup or use an indirect setup.[p]this 6 ounce tristan lobtsa tail was done indirect for about 10 minutes or so. pull them when they look tasty.
