Lobster Tail - Help

Happy New Years to all. Just picked up some Tri-Tip and Lobster Tails that were on sale at the local food barn. I've got the Tri-Tip covered as far as how to grill them, my question is in regards to the lobster tails. I've never cooked or grilled them before. Any suggestions, comments, do's and dont's would really be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Lobster Tail - Help

make clarified butter....cut along inner soft shell with a very sharp scissor.... grill hard shell side down first, grill 2-3 minutes, according to size... turn over, pour a little bit of clarified butter on the meat... grill about 3 maybe 4 minutes, or until meat turns opaque.. let sit for a few minutes, pull meat up, but not completely out of shell, serve

Thanks Bobberqer! Do I grill this over medium heat, high heat, direct or indirect?
