    Place the lobster tails directly on the grill grate and pour some of the seasoned butter into the cracked shell of each lobster. Smoke the lobster tails for about 1 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature registers 135 to 140 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer and the meat turns opaque.
