When lobster is on sale, I have the market steam them for me. Then, at home, I put them in large bowls and when cool enough to handle, I crack them open and pick out all the lobster meat. I save all the liquid that is in the shells and body. I freeze the meat and the "stock" separately and when needed, I have much of the work done.
