[Dallas] Lobster Shells and Carcasses

Anyway, is it strange for someone to go looking for five-pound batches of used lobster? Even if it is strange, is there some place I can find it?

1qt of lobster broth (not stock, no bones) for me.
Something new every day!
That's a good idea. I might go check out some places to see what I can find. I'm a bit of a lobster neophyte, so I'm not really sure if I'll be able to find them for that price in Dallas. Regardless, I'm going to report back with my finds and my broth results ... since I'm sure everyone's just super riveted ...

Not only do I get the stock I want, I usually get enough meat to make a few lobster rolls. Double bonus, if you ask me.
*Its a matter of trust that they're recently deceased. So far, so good.

Indeed even with the removal of internals and meat, within 24 hours you get the ammonia odor of decay from shells.
Hence the reason you can't find shells for sale.-Dick

I will be trying my Super H today (always love an excuse to trek up there), and mid-range restaurants of the Super H can't help. And I'm guessing I want to use them immediately, and not even freeze them, based on the ammonia thing?
