  • 2 steaks

Herb butter

  • 4 tbsp parsley chopped fine
  • 2 tbsp chives chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp zest of a lemon crated
  • 1 clove garlic chopped fine and puree it
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tsbp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 100 grams butter

Crab cakes

  • 400 grams crab meat smoked
  • 1 egg
  • 50 grams bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 3 tbsp PitmasterX classic BBQ rub


  • First step is to make the herb butter, add the ingredients for the butter into a bowl.
  • Mix it well and your butter is ready!
  • Now it's time to make the crab cakes, grab a bold and add the ingredients for the crab cakes into the bowl and mix it well until you got a sticky consistency.
  • Place some butcher paper and place it over your cutting board.
  • Use your hands to create beautiful crab cakes.
  • Now it's time to fire up your BBQ, set the grill grates on the lowest position.
  • Grab a cast iron pan and heat it up on your BBQ.
  • Add a lump of butter into the pan and once that's melted, add the crab cakes into the pan.
  • Once they get a nice crust, flip them over and let the other side develop a crust. Once both sides got a nice crust they are done.
  • Now it's time to put the steaks onto the grill, Grill it over direct heat.
  • Sear it on both sides and once we made that beautiful crust we are going to place it over indirect heat and stick in a thermometer.
  • On the direct grilling position we are going to place a cast iron pan.
  • Add some herb butter and once that is melted, add the lobster meat.
  • If they start curling up turn them around.
  • They don't need much heat, but we want a little bit of char on the lobster.
  • Once they got that, remove them out of the pan.
  • If the steaks hits a core temperature of 52°C/125°F, they are done.
  • Add some salt over your steaks and slice it up.
  • Place 2 or 3 crab cakes over your sliced steaks, and some lobster on top of that!
  • Finish it off with a little bit of butter on top of the lobster and you are done!
