You read a little and skimmed a little?
I skimmed the whole thing!
That was one long "recipe". Uusally a blog will condense things on the bottom, but not that one.

That said, I prefer the tail. I've cooked whole lobster several times and really only eat the tail and claws. Maybe suck a little meat from the legs. I don't get into all the "internals" that some do. Just me, but the tails work for me. Plus not every grocery store around me has a lobster tank, though I've ordered from Lintons before with good results. And Maine Lobster Direct (or something like that).
Not to mention I like my lobster with some color, so would just as soon partially grill or broil it. Not that steamed or boiled lobster isn't any good, but we all have our preferred methods.

Again, just me. YMMV and probably does

Think about those lobster in a grocery tank. When was the last time they ate anything? How long have they had to live off their own body? Don't think I would buy any live lobster from a grocery tank.

So they've been purged
I've eaten fish from my livewell before, too. And those were certainly not in the same shape as when I first put them in.

But I respect your decision.

Umm, lobster don't need to be "purged." You clean the vein out just like you do shrimp. When we used to catch lobster, we'd just pull them from the water, take them home, clean the vein out and prepare for eating right away or refrigeration/freezing.
