    Grilled Lobster with Seafood Stuffing

    We decided to take break from the smoker and meat today and try some traditional New England Seafood on the Weber charcoal grill. Lobsters were stuffed with a seafood stuffing made with scallops, panko, Ritz crackers, onion, celery, red pepper, Old Bay, lobster stock and butter. Lobsters were grilled over indirect heat for about 20 minutes. The steamers were steamed in Sam Adams Summer Ale beer seasoned with Old Bay and garlic. Corn on the cob was seasoned with butter, alder wood smoked salt and pepper and wrapped in foil.

        I'm a long way from my Atlantic Canada lobster! You're killing me as well! Love the stuffing idea.

        Lobster was considered food for the poor in the 19th century in the Maritimes, fit for the Acadian families with their dozen kids. How times have changed

            I haven't had lobster since I was in Nova Scotia in 2001 - that looks awesome! My sister is headed out there on her motorbike with 2 other ladies ... they should be crossing the Bay of Fundy about now.

            Thanks for the history lesson VanQuad - I had no idea!

              Lobster is tops for me, but limited to very special occasions because of the price. Even clams are a luxury around here these day. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I would have!

                  My Irish grandma thought eating lobster's to be peasant food, and corn on the cobb was only for cattle from her perspective. How things have changed!

                    I am not trying to kill anybody, lol, just inspire them! It was a great meal enjoyed on our patio with great weather. Well worth the effort to do ourselves.

                    GJ - Happy 4th to you as well!

                    SRASR - Get on a plane and fly up, I'll be glad to make you some.

                    Van Quad - The stuffing is great. I use whatever seafood is reasonable and fresh. Instead of scallops use fresh lump crab meat or shrimp or even a combo of all 3. I also use the stuffing in flounder, topped on salmon or other fish. Lobster truly has come a long way since the 19th century!

                    wtf - Wolfie and I do have Weber grills wth cast iron Craycort grates. I switched to the Craycort grates at Wolfies recommendation, they are great. Weber's are the preferred grill of charcoal diehards!

                    lynnifer - Your sister must be having a blast up in NS. I did that trip about 10 years ago. The Bay of Fundy is amazing to watch a 40 foot tide empty the bay in 6 hours. There is some awesome seafood to be had up there as well!

                    SCI55 - We have been blessed here in MA with an adundant supply of lobster north of the Cape Cod for the past few years keeping the prices around $4.99 a lb in summers to $12.99 in the winter. The steamer clams are from Maine and were $3.99 a lb! The clams are not as plentiful as they used to due to Red Tide and pollution. We try to enjoy as many lobsters as we can during the summer months.

                    Eileen - Thanks, it was a great festive dinner.

                          LOL -

                          one of my neighbors used to work for a seafood distributor in Bradley Beach - jersey Shore.
                          I used to find gifts of lobster claws on my patio all the time. Tails were the money makers.

                          Of course he don't do that any more - and my mouth is watering like everyone elses.

                            • Dirt-cheap because they were so copious, lobsters were routinely fed to prisoners, apprentices, slaves and children during the colonial era and beyond. In Massachusetts, some servants allegedly sought to avoid lobster-heavy diets by including stipulations in their contracts that they would only be served the shellfish twice a week.

                            according to this article, lobster did not become popular until the 1880s. It's weird to think that people's tastes could change so much. I guess it's true that familiarity does breed contempt.
