This is the way to go for sure. I boiled them in the past and they ended up like shriveled jumbo shrimp - chewy too. This retained tons of great flavor! The worst part is prepping before you cook them - I used kitchen shears and cut down the top, spreading the shell out. Just like shrimp there is a large "vein" - i.e. the poop shoot the lies on the dorsal surface - you'll see it when you expose the top of the tail meat. Just cut this part out. I poured butter on top, sprinkled garlic and Old Bay - took about 7 minutes on Broil (low setting) 5-6 inches from top. Dipped it in butter. We served ours with boiled king crab legs and corn on the cob. It was a great mother's day meal.
