Rack of Lamb question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Was planning on taking it to 140. My question is, should I put it in a cooler to rest after? If so, for 45 minutes?

For Medium Lamb Racks no need to rest more than 15 minutes to let the internal pressure drop and let the juices redistribute. The cooler deal will gain you some time if the rest of the meal is not ready, but not necessary...JJ

Your lamb makes me hungry!

 

Great job!

 

I like my lamb medium rare.

 

As Chef JJ said, a shorter rest is best for that cut.

 

I just set mine on a cutting board and tent loosely in foil for 10 to  15 minutes before the knife work!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Took it to 135 and rested it for 15... Out of necessity. Cook was considerably shorter than expected. Cut like butter and had great flavor.

Wait a min. In picture #4 in the smoker it looks frenched. When plated in picture #5 the meat grew back on? Probably just a bad angle.

 

Both looks delicious though!

A good lamb and eggs breakfast. Better view of the lamb being frenched. Next time I will trim the fat cap.
