      @anonymous: Tipi, you would not be disappointed. Like I stated above, Maine Lobster is above and beyond any other lobster types available. People say it is because of the colder water.

      I haven't ever cooked lobster, but I do cook crab legs from time to time. I just might have to get a lobster and try it at home. Thanks for sharing your tips.

      @cinstress: I would love to but it seems the price of the lobster people offer online is simply outrageous. IMOP

      So would you generally buy a lobster that weighs around 2lbs for $60, because if there is a craze for this I would be happy to supply links to the lobster.
