  • 2 Ribeyes bone in
  • 2 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder


  • 2-3 Lobster Tails
  • 1.5 tbsp Seafood Seasoning
  • Canola Oil as needed

Lemon Chive Butter:

  • ½ cup Clarified Butter
  • 2 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Chopped Chives
  • 1 medium Lemon juiced


  • Preheat your lump charcoal or wood to high heat (around 400F) for direct cooking.
  • Season your steaks with oil, kosher salt and garlic powder. Next, slice your lobster tails down the back and open up. Lather with oil and season with seafood seasoning. Set everything to the side.
  • Once the coals are white hot, blow off any loose ash and lay the tomahawk steaks down. Sear both sides for only 1-2 minutes until they are starting to brown. Once they are seared, pull the steaks off and spritz the coals with a little water to lower the temperature to a medium heat (about 325F). Lay the steaks back down. Cook over this lower heat, flipping & moving around on the coals every 5 minutes, for about 20 minutes until the internal temperature reads 120F for medium rare. Add a little additional seasoning to any bare spots on the steak. Once done, pull off and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Next, add your lobster tails to the coals and cook for 1-1.5 minutes per side. Pull off once white and no longer translucent in color.
  • Finally, add a cast iron skillet on the coals. Melt your clarified butter, then add your minced garlic to fry for 3-4 minutes. Add your lemon juice and chopped chives, then pull off and let cool.
  • Pour the butter over the top of the lobster and steaks. Pull out the steaks, slice, serve and enjoy!
