Lobster Boil

"I believe this recipe came from Cottage Country's bbq chef on the tv series way back when. His name was Ted Reader now known as the BBQ King - with spices and sauces and cookbooks attributed to his success. I saw Ted cook this on a show, found the recipe years later in one of his earlier cookbooks I believe, and copied it. Have always wanted to try it and with a birthday coming up in a few weeks, decided this was the party meal. I searched Zaar because I thought I would never find that little pc of paper but lo and behold tonite, I looked in the filing system I had in place way back when and found it. So posting it right away, just in case I lose it before the birthday!"

Update Nov 2009 - I live in Northwestern Ontario with the cold and the bugs. A baby born in each of my decade 20's 30's 40's!!! plus 2 grandsons now. I love to cook and hardly ever repeat a recipe. I never really had a fav cookbook but I now have a favorite recipe site that I am totally addicted to-RECIPEZAAR!!! I still email recipes to my own kids. My pet peeve is those folks who turn their noses up at a dish even before they try it. My family have sat at the table with a pig tail or a chicken foot on their plate just becuz I found a recipe - HAHAHa - cooking should be fun and very once in a while the dogs get a treat! I also love watching decorating shows and my husband keeps promising to put wheels on the furniture to make room arrangments easier! We don't hobby farm anymore on our 8 acres and the large veg garden has been made over - half rock garden and other half with 12 new raised cedar beds because I am getting old and the knees don't work so well. It is fabulous and will post a new cover pic altho I love my Inukshuks!! I LOVE snowshoeing and am blessed to be able to walk out my back door and enjoy.
