    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    Probably one of my all-time favorite foods is lobster, and there is nothing like a whole lobster. There is savory meat throughout - the trick is to get it out! Since the most effective tools are your hands, it's a messy, but worthwhile, job! It is definitely not something I choose to eat when attempting to appear dainty or refined.

      Made for ZWT-8 & a delayed celebration of 9 yrs together (delayed so we could dine on 2 of your lobster recipes). I admit the 1st thing we did was modify the recipe so it could be a starter portion & that meant using size-appropriate tails vs a whole lobster. We used what I call mid-size tails (a gift, so I'm unsure of the lobster variety). I admit the attraction here was the brandy butter & giving it a trial for a guest occasion. I made 4 of the tails for 2 of us, used a cpl generous shakes of lemon pepper, used Old Bay Seasoning vs salt as DH is salt-restricted (3/4 tsp salt = 1,500 mg sodium, 3/4 tsp Old Bay = 480 mg sodium or a 68% reduction) & added cpl shakes of dry parsley. The brandy butter was excellent even w/my chgs & our trial was a happy success that guests will soon enjoy. This starter portion was served B4 your Barbecue Recipes Grilled Lobster Tails as our main-course. Thx for "letting" me amend your recipe as needed & for sharing it w/us. :-)
