Lamb breast

So I found this 2 pack of lamb breast at the supermarket. Anyone tried these before? I figured they look like ribs, so why not. They were inexpensive too.

Any suggestions for seasoning them? Not sure what direction to go. I have just about the whole dizzy pig catalog in my spice rack. I was also thinking of going the garlic route on it. Probably do each one different, since I'm not too sure what will come out best.

    There was a guy at Toronto eggfest a couple if years ago thet did them. He went raised indirect at about 325* They were spectacular. I just came home with 4 three packs of shanks for around ten bucks a package.

    Do you remember what the flavor profile was like? I'm pretty confident I can get the, to cook tender, but I am worried about getting a good flavor.

    Shank three packs for $10, sounds like a win. How do you prep those up?

    Season, sear and braise. I have used a tajine the last few times. Just damn good! I'm thawing these and going to sous vide tonight and grill tomorrow.

    This guy was a high end butcher in Toronto and used his own lamb specific rub. I would say Dizzy Dust with added garlic, thyme and rosemary. The lamb flavour is pretty strong and just needs a compliment. Need to get on that soon but they are hard to find

    The DP RedEye is really tasty with lamb. I use that or my standby, olive oil, fresh chopped rosemary, garlic, s&p, and lemon. Both are excellent.
