post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I'm going to be giving lamb a try in the smoker/grill in the near future, and was wondering what some good rubs would be for lamb

I like crushed garlic, oregano, and olive oil.

Not really a rub but I like lamb chops brushed with honey+mustard+evoo+chopped fresh rosemary when grilled.

Lemon,EVO,garlic,rosemary,salt ,pepper.

If you want to bit towards left field, chermoula which is Turkish /North African.

My version, process  equal amounts fresh,cilantro,mint,parsley, garlic, cumin powder,coriander powder ,paprika, chilli,cbp ,salt ,lemon zest & juice ,EVO. I use big bunches of herbs ,so I upscale accordingly maybe 4 fat cloves of garlic, level tabs spice,careful with the cumin .Sometimes a touch of fenugreek as well.

Leave lamb in the mix for a couple of hours.Works well on a butterflied leg ,grilled over charcoal. Very street food ,market stall style of cooking.

I like to rub with EVOO then sprinkle with salt and pepper. I then peel and halve about 10-12 garlic cloves. I make a knife slit and stuff the garlic into the slits. Then I take 4 or 5 rosemary twigs and tie them to the lamb. Watch the IT and take off and rest at the right temp and you are golden.

Personally I love the taste of grilled lamb.

 

Just a little salt & pepper is just all we use.

rosemary and SPOG.

 

If I marinate I like a red wine and olive oil base.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

I use olive oil, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and minced rosemary . Mix all ingredients to make a paste. Just add the oil till you get the paste.

Try this one for an indian based rub for lamb and chicken

  • 8 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp each of turmeric, garam masala mix and cumin
  • 2 level tsp paprika
  • A handful coriander leaves, plus extra sprigs to serve
  • juice of 1 Lemon
  • 250ml (1/2 pint) natural yogurt
  •  

put all ingredients in a bowl and whizz together with stick or food mixer, coat the lamb and leave for 6 hours or better overnight in a fridge

can be used on piece's of lamb as kebab, lamb chops, shoulder (which is a super cut low n slow)or a butterfly boneless leg

My middle eastern inspired lamb rub

 

 

50 ml  Extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp chopped mint leaf and oregano

2 tsp Sumac powder (or fresh ground)

 

good pinch sea (kosher) salt & crack black pepper

 

mix together well, place in zip lock bag add your lamb, massage in and leave for 4 hours minimum to infuse

 

cook your desired way and enjoy,

 

I like to sear both sides,   then indirect in foil for 15 mins @ around 300 f serve with  buttered baby potatoes and minted peas
