Precooking lobster a day in advance

RodVito | Jul 22, 2009 11:54 AM

Im hoping someone can help me out here.

Im going camping tomrrow, and plan to bring out a few lobsters for a beach side feast. I will be grilling them, but I am concerned about keeping them alive for about 24 hours before I cook them. The fishmonger told me not to do it, as they might die, and you cant cook the bacteria out of a lobster...

So, I was hoping that I could boil them for about 3-4 minutes before I leave home, store them in the cooler, then spilt and grill them the next day.

Can anyone give me some advice?
