Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Remove the elastics and immerse the lobster in the pot head first, with its tail folded under.
Calculate the cooking time from when the water returns to a boil, according to the chart below.
Once the lobster is cooked, remove it from the pot and submerge it briefly in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking.
