Lobster or Snow Crabs over an open fire

We will be camping up in Nova Scotia and wondered if it's possible to cook either over a wood fire or open charcoal pit? Any ideas?

  1. It's possible and I think the charcoal pit would be better to cook the Lobster and Crab. You first need to kill, split and clean them, then grill them until the shells are a bright pink and the meat is opaque - 3 to 4 minutes per side for crabs and 6 to 8 minutes per side for lobster.
