Everyone loves Smoked Lobster Tail in the summer and there is no better way to prepare than with decadent butter and zesty lemon flavor.


Lobster Ingredients:
5 Lobster Tails
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons Weber® Zesty Lemon Seasoning
2 tablespoons oil

Lemon-Parm Butter:
⅛ cup butter
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese, grated
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon Weber® Zesty Lemon Seasoning
Juice of 1 lemon


Using a pair of kitchen shears, cut in the middle of the top of the lobster shell all the way down to the tail. Try to avoid cutting the meat. Once fully cut, use a spoon to go underneath the top of the shell to separate the meat from the shell.
Carefully lift the meat up and out from the shell (while still attached at the base of the tail). Lay the meat on top of the shell.
Repeat this for all the lobster tails.
In a large bowl, mix together the salt, black pepper, seasoning and oil, making it into a thin paste. Using a brush, lather the lobster with the seasoning.
Preheat your smoker to a medium-high temperature of 375°F.
Once the smoker is ready, add the lobster tails on and cook indirectly for 20-30 minutes. The lobster tails are done when they turn from translucent to completely white.

In a separate bowl, melt the butter.
Slowly integrate the parsley, parmesan cheese, garlic cloves, red pepper flakes, seasoning, and lemon juice. Mix together thoroughly, then lightly glaze the outside of the lobster tails before they come off the smoker. Save some of this sauce for dipping at the end.
