First lamb cook

First rack of lamb that I have ever tried to cook. It turned out great. Thanks RichardFL for the tips, but I had to go indirect due to the sparking lump (guess it was damp).

My favorite side salad of all time.

On the large with prosciutto wrapped asparagus. Seasoned the lamb with Red eye express and let it sit in the fridge for 9 hours

The wife normally has to have mint jelly on her's, but tonight the lid never came off the jar.

    everything looks awesome!

    can you tell us about the salad. i'd like to give that a try.

    The salad is a simple caprese. Fresh tomato, buffalo mozzarella, basile topped with EVOO and cracked pepper.

    Congrats on your lamb cook Richard. You got me on this cook I never have done it before. I have ate it done at eggtoberfest and cooked by LC but, I will have to work on Cindy and lamb before we do the cook here at home. :)

    i thought that was basil, but it's a lot larger and prettier than what i see around here.

    Bad spelling..too many Smithwick's :huh:. I have the basil growing in a pot on the front porch.

    Thanks Tim,
    She has never ordered lamb when ate eat out, but always wanted a bite of mine. :ermm: Now she is sold!! I will say this about lamb...If it's not cooked right or it is a cheap grade of lamb it will taste very gamey (sp).

    Richard,

    Love that menu! I got some baby bocconcini on Saturday and had the same salad.

    Steve,
    I have never had or even seen bocconcini before. Is this a Canadian thing or something I have over looked in the cheese section?

    Richard,

    It is like mozzerella but small and very little salt. It was originally made with milk from water buffaloes. I think they use cow's milk and buffalo milk now. Don't believe it is Canadian Italian but not sure.
