Cooking A Lobster

A friend of mine has some relatives in Maine, and they were coming in for a couple weeks to stay with him and his family over the Thanksgiving weekend.
He stopped in the other night and asked if I wanted some lobsters because they were bringing some down with them fresh.
I said yeah, why not, put me down for 6.
Friday afternoon, he called me and said bring your cooler over, so I got over there and got 6 live lobsters for 20 bucks. Whoo Hooo
My crab cooker will hold a bushell and a half, so all 6 fit in there, and my buddy told me to cook them about 18 minutes.
Not a bad supper, some potato's from the garden, and some deer steak, and a little fried cabbage and cornbread, me and the boys were laying around the living room for an hour or so before we got up to clean the table.

mmm sounds good. I used to work with a girl who was from Maine and when she went home to visit her mother she would bring some back for anyone who wanted it. Delicious and cheap

That's a great price for lobster! There's nothing like fresh lobster to have a lobster bake.

Delicious! I live on the Canadian side of the border from Maine and lobster is my favorite treat!
