I heartily recommend the lobster boil! We ordered 12 cooked lobster last year and enjoyed a lobster feast the first night and lobster soup the next. They are cooked to perfection and stay nice and hot until you're ready to eat them. We kept them in an insulated cooler until we were ready to come to the table. Yum!
