Butter poached lobster question...

Indirect Heat | Sep 27, 2009 12:36 PM

I'm planning to butter poach a lobster this evening. The recipe I have says to boil a 2 lb lobster for 2 minutes, take it apart, then poach the meat for 5-6 minutes. I have a 5 lb lobster (holy crap!), how should I adjust these times so as to properly cook the lobster, without overcooking it?

Thanks in advance.
