Shop for fresh lobster within a few hours of preparing this recipe. Pre-heat your grill for indirect heat by piling your charcoal to one side.
Clean and oil your grill grates. Meanwhile, chill the lobster in the freezer for 20 minutes or so before preparing them.
Have a clean work surface and a very sharp heavy knife ready. Lay the lobster legs down flat on your work surface.
Find the first seam of the shell and press your knife firmly and quickly, splitting the lobster, towards the front. This ensures a quick kill.
Then flip and split the lobster tail in half. With a small spoon or your fingers, quickly clean out the tomalley, the organs and other internal items that aren’t meat.
