    Normaone's Note:

    When our sons were quite young, occasionally, after we put them to bed, my husband and I would have a special late night candlelight dinner. Instead of paying for a babysitter, we would fix something really special and just dine in. It was always more fun then going out;>) This was one of our favorites.

      Best Lobster I have ever made, by far! We buy the Lb and a half tails from Sams Club and these made up beautifully. Have not reviewed any other recipe yet but felt the need to give thanks to poster for a Great recipe. Bread crumbs worked well for us.

      My wife wasn't keen on the idea of fixing homemade lobster tails because we had never done it. When we followed this recipe minus the dry breadcrumbs, we thought it was the best lobster tail we had ever had. The recipe was easy to make. We did do one additional thing that the recipe didn't call for; we put the melted butter and minced garlic in the bottom of the shell before we put the meat back into the shell. By doing this, it cooked over the garlic and butter the entire time it was on the grill. We cooked it on a gas grill and it came out awesome. You don't need hickory chips for this to be flavorful. My wife liked this recipe also because the meat came straight out of the shell when it was time to eat. She doesn't like fighting the meat out of the shell. Outstanding recipe and highly recommended!

      My husband wanted me to make him lobster and I didn't have a clue how to cook it, so I mostly looked for ways to prepare it when I searched for lobster. This recipe sounded great, I did sprinkle on the lemon juice and roll it in garlic butter, but then only put on a little salt and pepper since my husband doesn't like a lot of spices and he's no fan of bread crumbs. I followed the grilling instructions and it turned out wonderful, my husband loved it. I will use this in the future, this one will definitely be printed for my cookbook folder.
