Preparation & Cooking Time: Prep time: 10 minutes Grilling time: 7 to 11 minutes

2. Using kitchen shears, split each tail in half lengthwise. (If desired to prevent the lobster meat from curling during cooking, thread a skewer lengthwise through the center of the meat of each piece.) Lightly brush the exposed meat with the butter in the cup. Grill the lobster tails, meat side down, over direct medium heat (350°F to 450°F), with the lid closed as much as possible, until lightly marked, 2 to 3 minutes (watch for flare-ups). Turn the tails over and grill until the meat is white and firm but not dry, 5 to 8 minutes longer, brushing occasionally with some of the butter in the cup. Remove from the grill and serve warm with the reserved butter on the side.
