The point of baking a whole lobster in its shell is that it cooks in its own juices, cooking just long enough for the shell to cook through and fill the lobster meat with flavor, but not long enough to toughen the lobster. For cooked lobster to remain tender it needs to be subjected to only gentle heat and low temperatures.

Use either a covered grill or an oven, but in either case, cook the lobster on a fireproof tray or baking sheet.
