One Tuff Lobster Prep!

Recommended Posts

RJB

I got this lobster from an old guy who lives in Lewistown. I actually got 8 of them but most of those turned out to be junk. Happens. Anyways, I started on this one last year and gave up and put it aside. Well, this morning I ran into a guy who has what I want and he wants a lobster, so I got busy with this one again. Its got lots and lots of problems and these are a super pain in the you know what to prep, but I think in the end it will turn out to be a perty good fossil lobster. This thing has most of what you want. Both claws, head, even though its crushed, most of its 'nose', some leg, some antenna and most of its rear end. I may have to build a tail? Just don't know yet. Lots of little 'fix up' jobs too, but this is what it takes to get one of these prepped.

Ok, I had company for 10 days and finally got around to putting in some more hours into this thing. It still looks perty bad, and has a long ways to go. Ive got a lot of little 'fix it' jobs on both the rock itself and the lobster too, most of these will be easy to fix, just takes some time. It should start lookin perty good with just a few more short hours? Ha!!!

Prep takes time and it looks like you are owning this very challenging piece!

Apparently it isn't important to you, so when you find it just go ahead and send it to me. :D Thank you in advance.

When you get around to cleaning up your prep bench, I would be more happy to make the drive to help out with some of the heavy lifting. I have seen the mountains of concretions in the background of you pictures and frankly I'm worried you might get buried alive one day.:D We can't have that. Let me know. I will work for crab (concretions, I'm not big on seafood).

@RJB I second that good idea haha! :envy: Besides your crab preps I'm always interested in what you're cooking up at home. Good recipe ideas are always helpful.
