  1. First Quarter: Decide on what kind of lobster slider you want to make. This will guide your shopping list and also help you decide on what kind of lobster to purchase. All of our lobster is shipped within 24 hours. With the exception of live lobster, all other lobster will be shipped frozen making it easy and convenient to prepare for the big day ahead of time.
  2. Second Quarter: A day before game day, take your lobster out of the freezer and allow it to defrost gently in the refrigerator.
  3. Halftime: What portion of your sliders can you prepare ahead of time? Ingredients such as bacon or Maine style lobster salad can be prepped the morning of. This will get you out of the kitchen and in front of the TV, cold beer in hand with your guests.
  4. Third Quarter: Cook up any component of your lobster sliders that is best served warm. Whether its butter poaching claw and knuckle meat or grilling up a steak.
  5. Fourth Quarter: Hopefully the score isn’t stacked against your team as you stack up your sliders. Whether you decide to create a slider bar and let everyone create their own masterpiece or build them all yourself, this is the final play that will have your scoring a touchdown. Don’t forget the rest of the team lineup with your Cape Cod chips and craft brews.
