“Deadliest Catch” Legs and Tails

Haven’t cooked these yet. They are on my To Do List. I think about them every time I walk past the seafood counter and they have what I think they call “yard legs.”  They are about three feet long.


Apple or alder wood chunks

1 cup butter or margarine, melted

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind

Pinch salt

5 pounds frozen king crab legs, thawed

4 frozen lobster tails, thawed (about 2 pounds)


Soak wood chunks in water to cover at least 30 minutes.

Prepare charcoal fire in smoker; let burn 15 to 20 minutes. Drain chips, and place on coals. Place water pan in smoker; add water to fill line.

Stir together butter and next 4 ingredients. Divide lemon-butter mixture in half. Crack crab legs, and split lobster tails. Brush lobster and crab with half of mixture; set aside remaining mixture.

Coat rack with cooking spray; place in smoker. Arrange crab legs and lobster tails on rack; cover with grill lid. Smoke crab about 20 minutes and lobster about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until flesh is white and firm.

Serve with reserved lemon-butter mixture.
