Rack of Lamb recommendation...

Hi All,

One of my all time faves is rack of lamb. I've never tried it on the Egg though.

Can anyone point me to a recipe for the BGE?

Thanks!

    @TorontoBBQer.... just type "rack of lamb" in the search box at the top right of this page. That will point you to a number of posts that you may find helpful.

    In what area of TO are you located?

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Lamb, Rack, Richard Fl.

    Just a little rack of lamb or two and some asparageese.

    INGREDIENTS:
    2 Racks Lamb
    1 Pkg Asparagus
    Lamb Marinade:
    1 cup Italian Salad Dressing
    4-6 Cloves Garlic, Whole
    1/3 cup Sweet or Red Onion, Diced
    1/3 cup Rosemary, Fresh Leaves
    1 Tbs Black Pepper, Fresh Ground
    1 pinch Sea Salt
    1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
    1 Lemon, Juice From
    Zaatar, (Optional)
    Fresh Mint leaves, ( Optional )
    1/4 cup Soy Sauce, ( Optional )

    I like to wrap the lamb bones in foil so they do not get charred.

    PROCEDURE:

    1. Rack of Lamb:

    2. Asparaaageese:

    3. Finished:

    Marinade:

    1. Place all in blender and puree. Place meat in ziploc bag and marinate for 4-6 hours, overnight is OK but be careful after 12 hours as the lemon juice has a tendency to "COOK" the meat.

    2. This works well for lamb kabobs, legs, rack or shoulders and shanks.

    3. Soy sauce may be added for optional flavor.,

    4. If doing shanks, like to cut into 1 1/2-2 inch pieces as this tends to reduce the cooking time.

    5. Save the rosemary twigs for smoke!

    6. 350F direct high in dome until 140F or so, keep turning the racks

    Recipe Type: Main Dish, Meat

    My favourite way is to season with rosemary, garlic and olive oil and hot tub for about 40 minutes

    That's why I put the olive oil on the lamb.

  • Start with a little olive oil on the rack. Season rack with salt/pepper/granulated garlic. Get egg up to about 500, direct. Sear all sides of the rack for about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove rack. Take egg to 400 degrees and add plate setter. While egg cools down a bit, take rack inside. Brush on honey mustard all over rack.

    In a bowl, mix bread crumbs, minced garlic, garlic salt, pepper, rosemary, and a squeeze of lemon. Add in olive oil until the mixture can be spread and stick to the rack. Spread mixture all over rack.

    Place racks back on egg, at 400 degrees, indirect. Take temp to 125, about 15 minutes.

    My wife's favorite!!!

    ArizonaEggHead 's suggested rub sounds about right, though i'd add some minced shallots.

    not sure where you're getting your lamb in toronto, but i can't recommend enough the lamb from best baaa farms. they have stall in the north, farmer's market on Saturday's at the St. Lawrence market.
