This is a great size for someone who wants just a little more than our average best selling size of 1.5lbs…we would hate for you to not satisfy that lobster appetite!! Are Bigger Lobsters Tough? One of the biggest misnomers is that big lobsters are apt to be course and tough. Not true at all. You’ll not only get more meat with a good hard-shell jumbo lobster, but the meat will be just as tender if it is cooked properly.
