Chief knife, start at the head. I put them on the grill and basted with butter the entire time it took to cook, which wasn't long.

Treat them like crawfish and they will be fine...

If you look in the pics above, all 4 pots were different. I just filled them a little more than 2/3 the way full, and salted to taste. We did about 12 lobsters in each pot per boil. Worked out great

Holey Chit

I have already emailed the guy...just gotta pick a day when I try this out as well.

If I got them in on a Friday...how can I keep them alive until Saturday? Fridge?

re: Lobsters is a crawfish pot


I'm quite late to this party, but here's some info for future boils:
quote:

Taking into account the total amount of water in the 3/4 filled pot you end up with the complete formula of (total # of quarts divided by 1.5 quarts equal the total amount of pounds of lobster to cook at one time).
A standard twenty quart pot filled to 15 quarts will hold ten pounds of lobsters. Broken down to size it will hold 8 Chicken lobster, 6 to 7 one and a half pounders, 4 to 5 2.25 lb lobsters. Now that you have your total number of lobsters you can cook at one time; you need to know the cooking time. The rule of thumb is 8 minutes per pound of lobster. That is a two pound lobster takes 16 minutes to cook.

re: Lobsters is a crawfish pot


He replied...he can do this year round


So for those that did them in the crawfish pot...did you use just salt water or any kind of crab/crawfish stuff?
