Lion Premium Grills Featured Recipe: Grilled Lobster Tails & Spicy Citrus Butter
We’re kicking off this issue with an absolutely amazing recipe that is also incredibly easy to make — grilled lobster tails with spicy citrus butter. The flavor profiles are off the charts and while simple to make, the results are really unbelievable; this is one of our favorite recipes for sure. Lobster is great, but there is just something about grilling it that takes it to entirely new levels. Enjoy the recipe!
- 4 six ounce lobster tails (if frozen, be sure to thaw them out first)
- 5 tablespoons of softened unsalted butter
- 2 minced medium cloves of garlic
- 3/4 tablespoon of kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon Tabasco Sauce
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime zest, grated
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest, grated
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- Prepare your Lion gas BBQ grill by preheating it to medium high heat (450-475 degrees Fahrenheit).
- While letting the grill heat up, prep your lobster tails for the grill by cutting along the back of the lobsters starting at the opening of the tail to the fin of the tail.
- Clean out any undesirable matter from the split open lobster tail if necessary.
- Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet or pan over medium heat. This is the perfect situation for one of our Lion side burners.
- As the butter melts, add in the minced garlic and stir occasionally until the garlic begins to turn a golden brown.
- After the garlic and butter mixture turns a golden brown (takes roughly 2 minutes), remove the mixture from heat and transfer the sauce into a bowl. Let the mixture cool for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, lime zest, kosher salt, and Tabasco. Mix well.
- Go ahead and take your split lobster tails and brush them with the butter mixture.
- Take the lobster tails and place them on the grill; grill until the meat of the tails is lightly marked (it should take roughly 3 minutes or so).
- Dollop the remaining butter over the lobster meat and close the lid of the grill.
- Grill until the lobster meat is firm, moist, and opaque which should take 2 to 3 minutes more.
- Remove from the grill and serve warm, room temperature, or chilled as part of a lobster salad.
Lion Premium Grills: Mobile Grilling With Our L75000 Grill & Grill Cart
Each month we’ve been taking a closer look at one of our premium products. We’ve featured our single and double side burner, our ice bin, flame tamers, and a host of our items. What we have yet to take an in-depth look at is our L75000 Grill Cart! This is the perfect item when you want the ease, functionality, and versatility of portable grilling while purchasing something that maintains only the highest standards of quality when it comes to construction, performance, and appearance. Enjoy the feature below!
A Brief Synopsis of the L75000 BBQ Grill
The BBQ grill itself is obviously a hugely important part — the grill needs to be great for the positive aspects of the portable grill cart to even matter. Our 32″ L75000 4-burner grill is our flagship item and is the premiere grill on the market. It is crafted from 304 grade 16 gauge stainless steel (we have an entire feature this issue dedicated to our usage of the highest grade stainless steel) – this is the highest quality and comes with all of the perks – weather resistant, heat resistant, rust resistant, and heavy durability. 4 cast stainless steel burners output a total of 75,000 BTUs which is an impressive amount of cooking power and the 830 sq inches of cooking space is suitable for handling a substantial amount of food at any one time. Push to turn knobs, a dual lined stainless steel hood adorned with an XL temperature gauge, and dual interior lights round out the list of features.
Grill Cart Feature Breakdown
The L75000 grill can easily be attached and/or detached from the cart itself. The grill cart, like our other items, is made from commercial grade dual layered 16 gauge stainless steel making it extremely sturdy and resistant to environmental factors. The cart carries real weight at roughly 85 lbs. and definitely feels sturdy and balanced. Two access doors with polished handles are used to store your propane tank and other accessories. On the inside of the door you’ll find a towel rack and bottle opener for convenience. The wheel components are smooth and resistant to the annoying “sticking” quality that cart wheels can sometimes display.
Versatility & Functionality
So you’re looking for a high quality grilling experience but maybe you lack the space for an outdoor island; maybe you don’t want an outdoor kitchen at all and would prefer something that you can move around, adjust easily, and put away quickly and painlessly. This is where our grill cart comes in. You can use it on your condo balcony, you can shift it around your backyard when need be, and the list goes on. The versatility of our grill cart is unmatched and it looks beautiful to boot. It also allows for the most important part — access to a high end grilling experience that can be fully customized to any need — from our smoker box with wood chips to using our charcoal tray, the grilling possibilities are nearly endless. We also offer a grill cart for our 40″ grill for those looking for larger options.
Lion Premium Grills: Enhance Your Grilling Experience
Having the best tools at your disposal is essential when it comes to the grilling experience. We feel we make the best grills and outdoor products so that criteria is met. It is still always very useful though to obtain some general tips and tricks to make your actual experience on the grill a more enjoyable one (and it will increase your overall grilling skills and base of knowledge). These little tips will come in extremely handy when it comes to really maximizing all of the ways you can improve on your craft. We hope you take these tricks and apply them the next time you decide to grill up some chicken (brine it for the best chicken you’ve ever tasted) or attempt to steam the perfect piece of Chilean Sea Bass.
Brined Poultry Makes for Fantastic Grilling
The process of brining chicken or turkey is really very simple but it makes a world of difference when it cooks to tenderness and flavor. It’s completely worth the time and effort, and once you try this method you’ll be hard pressed to go back to not brining. Bring some salt water and sugar to a boil and mix completely. Add any aromatics, spices or herbs to the mix and let cool completely. Once the liquid is completely cool, add your poultry, stick it in the refrigerator and let it rest for anywhere from a handful of hours to a few days (the longer it goes, the more intense the flavors become). That’s it! Be prepared for some incredible grilled chicken!
Pack and Steam Your Fish
Steaming your desired cut of fish is an incredible way to go when grilling fish; the fish remains moist and you can steam with any variety of herbs,aromatics, and enhancers that you could ever want. Slices of lemon, sprigs of thyme, etc. are all perfect for this. The process is simple as well; wrap your fish in a foil packet that has been oiled and filled with your other ingredients. Place on the grill for roughly 8 to 10 minutes. There are many amazing ways to cook fish but this method seems underrated in our eyes.
Use Seasoning and Sauces with Restraint
Be careful to not overdo it with the marinades, rubs, and sauces. It’s all personal preference of course, but the powerful flavor of grilled or smoked meat can be obscured instead of subtly enhanced. Flavorful cuts of steak like ribeye or porterhouse may only need salt and oil as seasoning. Be careful to not add BBQ sauce too early while your meat is still on the grill for instance. If you sauce it before the last few minutes on the grill, the intense heat will scorch the bbq sauce and negatively impact the overall flavor of your ribs.
Lion Premium Grills: Analyzing the Multi Functional Bin
Each month we are taking a closer look at one of our signature outdoor items. At Lion, we feel that it is imperative that provide a detailed look at our various products and time we’re going to take a look at our multi-functional bin — as the name states, this roll out bin is a handy, vital piece of the puzzle as it doubles as a propane tank holder or a trash bin. Below you’ll find out a bit of information regarding this item. Please enjoy!
This is our Multi-Functional Bin. As the name states, it fulfills a variety of different uses; the vertical access drawer rolls out allowing the owner to place a propane tank inside for easy access and storage. To prevent any jostling of the tank, the storage bin comes equipped with a very useful strap that allows for the tank to be stabilized and kept in place while opening or closing the drawer. The front drawer is vented and the entire unit itself is constructed from 304 grade stainless steel. If you do not need to store a propane tank, you can also place a trash bin in its place. It’s a very useful and clean looking tool to improve the overall intuitiveness (by increasing storage space, ease of access etc.) of utilizing our outdoor grills, products, and BBQ islands. Not only is the 304 grade 16 gauge stainless steel that we use to craft our multi functional bin useful due to it’s powerful anti-rust properties and sturdiness / damage resistance but it also looks amazing. The sheen and shimmer of the stainless steel is eye popping, especially when kept in tip top condition. Having a full suite of Lion products is a visual feast; our multi-bin is no exception. The interior details, the rolling rails, polished handle, etc. are also very pleasing to the eye. The visual design is tasteful and unmatched. The numerous details add pop and visual flourish. Quality and visual appeal can be accomplished simultaneously and we feel that this product is just one such testament to that.
