    Looks good.

    Crab legs on the grill is one thing I have not tried yet. Every time I see them posted, I think "oh yeah"

    The whole family likes crab legs and, and others, never gave grilling them a thought.

    How long did you leave them on and how hot did you get the grill?

    The answer is kind of hard to pin down. Most crab legs you get are already cooked(steamed) when you buy them, whether they are frozen or thawed when you buy them at the market. So, what you are really doing is just heating them up.

    I make sure they are completely thawed before they go on the grill.
    I set-up my grill for indirect cooking and keep the heat at 350 +/- a few degrees.
    The next is kind of look, feel, and listen. The thawed legs will have quite a bit of moisture inside the shells. So the trick is to get them hot and most of the water gone without drying out the legs. Usually this will take around 7-10 minutes then flip them over and cook them for another 7-10 minutes on the other side. Then pull of the legs off, break it open and check if the meat is hot and most of the water is gone.
