  • 3 Lobsters split in half & cleaned
  • 1.5 tbsp Smoked Chipotle Mezcal Seasoning
  • 1 cup Gruyere Cheese grated
  • Lemons Sliced for garnish
  • Parsley Chopped for garnish
Garlic Butter Sauce:
  • 1.5 tbsp White Wine
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Minced
  • 1 tbsp Shallots Minced
  • 1 stick of Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tsp Hot Sauce
  • ½ tsp Tarragon Chopped
  1. Lather your split & clean lobster halves with canola oil and then thoroughly seasoning with Chipotle Mezcal seasoning (or your favorite seafood seasoning). Set in the fridge until you are ready to cook.
  2. Preheat your Cowboy Charcoal for direct grilling at a medium temperature (about 350F).
  3. Add a cast iron skillet over the coals to preheat for 1 minute. Add your shallots and garlic and let simmer with a little oil until browns (about 2-3 minutes). Deglaze the skillet with the white wine and let simmer for 1 minute. Next, add the butter and hot sauce and let it melt. Once everything is melted and simmering, add your chopped tarragon. Let simmer for 1 more minute then pull off and let cool.
  4. Pull out your lobster tails, and add them to the grill to cook for 2-3 minutes flesh side down. Flip the lobster tails over and begin adding a spoonful of the Garlic Butter sauce on each lobster tail. Top each tail with the grated gruyere cheese and cover the lobster tails with a lid or cover to let the cheese caramelize (about 2-3 minutes). Once the lobster tails are done and the cheese is melted, pull off and let cool.
  5. Garnish the lobster with parsley and lemons. Serve & enjoy!
