Get your surf on with these deliciously buttered grilled lobster tails. Brushed with a tasty garlic, butter, and chives sauce, the lobster tails are then grilled to perfection on a Pit Boss Wood Pellet Grill for added depth and flavor. This recipe is great for a Summer's night with friends or as part of that special holiday feast.
Wood Pellet Recommendation
The delicate and sweet flavors from Maple Hardwood make our Maple Blend Wood Pellets a wonderful choice for this recipe.
Start your Grill on ''SMOKE'' with the lid open until a fire is established in the burn pot (3-7 minutes).
Preheat grill to 350°F.
Blend butter, chives, minced garlic, and black pepper in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
Butterfly the tails down the middle of the softer underside of the shell. Don't cut entirely through the center of the meat. Brush the tails with olive oil and season with salt, to your liking.
Grill lobsters cut side down about 5 minutes until the shells are bright red in color. Flip the tails over and top with a generous tablespoon of herb butter. Grill for another 4 minutes, or until the lobster meat is an opaque white color.
Remove from the grill and serve with more herb butter and lemon wedges.
