If you do this right, you will never order it in a restaurant again! Racks of lamb – approx. 4-6 bones per person served. You will likely prefer Australian to New Zealand racks, but California-grown can also be very good
Gourmet Rack of Lamb
GMG Texas Pellets
3 Racks of Lamb
2 tbsp Fresh Rosemary
12 Garlic Cloves
1/3 c Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Unpack and clean Lamb racks
Lamb has several layers of membranes. Peel 3-4 of these off so that the seasoning and smoke will better permeate the meat.
Crush the rosemary in a small food processor or mortar and pestle
Mince the garlic with a garlic press (or use equal quantity – 4-5 tablespoons – of minced garlic from a jar).
Make a paste with the olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Use this paste to coat any part of the rack of lamb that is not covered with fat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the fat cap on the top side of the rack.
Set the grill to 400°. Grill the lamb for about 12 minutes per side or until done to your liking.
