I final found time to make a lobster tail, I was pondering some shrimp and then Jeff email came about lobster tail and I knew  I had to try it! Great timing Jeff! especially since so many have already tried it, it was just a matter of decent weather and few free hours.

I wanted to do one just for me before i get guests over.work out the process, even though Jeff has it all down, but i never cook a Lobster before. I deviated a little from Jeff's recipe just a little.

I used a different butter recipe. i have a chili-lime butter sauce, my vision was running at 250. i couldn't find my deflector so i went for it anyway. the Kamodo is pretty decent over lump direct at the top rack.

just fantastic! i even over cook it a little. I know red lobster isn't the best of anything but I took my mother-inlaw there in Nov. Unless it's a spur of the moment, no more red lobster!

Thanks for looking and if you get a chance try some lobster!
