Ingredients

  • 2

    Kg Frozen Alaskan King Crab Legs

  • ¼ cup melted butter, salted

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

Directions

Pre-heat covered grill to 400°F (200 C). If you have hickory or mesquite wood chips, place about 1½ cups in an open foil pouch, with ¼ cup of water, while pre-heating and leave it in during cooking. 2 Whisk the garlic into the butter and reserve. 3 Place the frozen crab legs directly on the grill for 14-16 minutes, depending on the thickness of the legs. Usually, 14 minutes will do, unless you're at the height of the King Crab seasons. 4 After about 5 minutes, brush or drizzle the garlic butter mixture over the legs. There will be some flaming. This is a good thing. 5 About half-way through grilling, turn the legs over. 6 About 2 minutes before the end of cooking drizzle or brush the remaining butter over the legs. Watch out for more flames. 7 When done, remove to a metal tray and cover with foil. Let stand for 3-4 minutes to let the crab meat absorb any liquid in the shell. Serve with or without melted butter.
