Sorry to digress, but can any one recommend a decently humane way of killing the lobsters right before cooking? I loves me lobster, but am not so hot on the idea of boiling them alive.

I usually cut them in half (quick death), then steam it

Lethal injection....There's no other way, sorry. The lobster is simply thinking it's taking a hot bath and quitely passes out. BTW,the screeming sound you hear is not the lobster. It's the shell.

the lobster onsale at T&T this week are Canners which are usually under a lb which IMO is too small to enjoy. To me a nice 1.25 lber is the best.

I don't know how metro packs them, but when you bring them home from the east coast (you can buy them right at the airport), they pack them in icepacks.

From what In understand, this slows down their heart rate to essentially a comatose state and therefore they are unconcious (or close to) when you go to cook them.

This was only told to me. I have no research or anything...if you want more info, I'm sure the internet will help out.

If you want to kill a lobster without splitting the body, you can take a large, sharp knife and pierce down into the top of the head, then bring the knife down to sever the head in two. It's a pretty quick death, particularly for something that lives in the sea.

Would like to know as well. I'm going to drop by after work to pickup some of those Drumstick ice cream cones that are on sale, so I might take a look at those lobsters.
