I need help with grilling octopus either on stovetop griddle or broiler
Which method works better to best approximate the results on a real grill? Also...I've never bought it! I'm in NYC...think I can find it in Chinatown? Will they cut the legs off for me? I dont want the head (mark bittman doesn't use the head!). Also is it alright at room temperature or should I grill it directly before serving? Any other unsolicited tips? Thanks :)

A good rule with octopus is to cook for less than 3 minutes (grill) or more than 3 hours (stew).
A bit of lemon and oregano and garlic = yum!
