How Long Do I Cook Lobster???

How do I cook live lobsters?

 

Last night I cooked 2 lobsters ~ 1.8 pounds each.    I put them in a large pot of boiling water and cooked for a total of 11 minutes.  The info for this cooking time came from "www.".  It took maybe 5 minutes to bring it back to a boil after adding the creatures.

 

IMO they were over done ...the tails were tough.  My gut was maybe 7 -8 minutes total....

Were they Maine Lobsters  or spiny lobsters?
