    Insert the probe into the center of the lobster meat, avoiding the shell if possible. Place the lobster tails directly on the grill grates and pour some of the seasoned butter into the cracked shell of each lobster. Smoke the lobster tails for 1 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 135-140°F, and the meat turns opaque.
