Tomahawk Steak:

Lobster Meat Skillet:

  • 4-6 oz Lobster Meat
  • 2.5 oz White Wine
  • 3 tbsp Clarified Butter
  • 1.5 tbsp Garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup Chipotle Garlic Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Chives finely chopped


  • Using a 1/4” drill bit, drive a hole into the top part of the bone of your tomahawk steak.
  • Using some trussing string, wire or a butcher hook, truss the Tomahawk so that it will hang nicely over your fire about 5-6 inches away from the coals.
  • Lather your steaks with a little canola oil or olive oil.
  • Thoroughly season your steaks on all sides. For the perfect flavor, season the sides with my Bourbon Prime Seasoning.
  • Once the steaks are seasoned, set in the fridge for 1 hour to set.
  • Build a large fire in your fire pit. Wait until the fire is a medium-high heat (around 350 degrees F). Set up your tri-pod or another hanging device over the pit.
  • Pull your steaks out of the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Hang your Tomahawk steaks over the fire and cook for about 30 minutes until the internal temperature is 100 degrees F. Keep adding charcoal and wood to maintain the temperature of the fire.
  • When the steaks are close to hitting temperature, get your fire very hot. Place your steak on a grill grate and flip every 1-1.5 minutes until it reaches 120 degrees F internal for medium rare (about 4 minutes more cooking).
  • Once the steaks are done, pull them off and let them rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add a cast iron skillet to the center of the sear plate. Melt your clarified butter then add your minced garlic to simmer until golden brown.
  • Deglaze the skillet with white wine, then add your lobster meat along with the Chipotle Garlic seasoning to cook in the butter for about 3-4 minutes until warmed.
  • Once the lobster meat is done, pull it off and layer generously over the top of the Tomahawk steak. Garnish with chopped chives. Enjoy!
