Cherry BBQ Glazed Grilled Lobster Tail

Posted by Country Ovens, Ltd on Jan 29th 2020


  • 6 lobster tails
  • 1 cup Cherry De-Lite BBQ Sauce
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  • In a sauce over low heat melt butter and brown sugar. Add Cherry De-Lite BBQ Sauce and simmer low just to keep warm until well mixed.
  • To split the lobster tails in half, place them on a cutting board, backside down. Use a large, sharp knife to cut down through the center to the shell the whole length.
  • Fold the shell back (like you are opening a book), breaking through the shell. If the shell doesn't break, you can use kitchen shears to cut through it. The flesh should now be exposed.
  • Pat the lobster tails dry with paper towels.
  • Preheat the grill for medium-high heat.
  • Brush the butter bbq sauce onto the flesh side of lobster tails.
  • Place the lobster tails onto the grill and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, turning them once during the cooking process. Depending on the size of the lobster tail, it may need to cook longer.
  • Lobster tails will be done once meat reaches an internal temperature 140° F. The shells should turn a bright pink and the flesh should be opaque all the way through the center.
  • Remove the lobster tails from the heat. Serve with remaining butter bbq sauce and enjoy!
