Heat your grill to 375 degrees over direct heat. You definitely want the temperature to be on the hot side.
Spray the crab legs with olive oil. You don't need much!
Place the legs on the grill for 5-7 minutes and turn them over.
These are precooked from the store, so you just need to reheat them without over cooking.
Charred Lemon Butter
Slice lemons in half and place them cut-side down on the grill.
Remove them when you remove the crab legs. They should have nice sear marks on them.
Squeeze some of the juice into the melted butter and dip your crab legs in it! Yum!!!
Watch for hot spots: Without the plate setter on the grill, it will develop hot spots. Move the crab legs around to make sure they are evenly cooked.Avoid Overcooking: Do not over cook the crab or they will become dry and rubbery. This is a fast grill recipe and you are really aiming for quick temperature rise.Pre-Cracking: If you know your guests will have trouble cracking the tougher shells of the King Crab, spend a few minutes to crack them before you place them on the grill. These are not soft shells like Snow Crabs, so you definitely will need to work to get the meat!Quick Thaw Method: Put them in the sink full of water for about a half hour and then proceed with the recipe. Ideally, you can take them out of the freezer the night before.Foil Method for Frozen Crab Legs: Instead of placing the crab legs straight on the grill grate, wrap FROZEN CRAB in a foil pack and cook for 15-20 minutes and they will come out fabulous! Remember, you are trying to heat them up as they are already cooked.
