This my first time making lamb, Aldi had a sale for $7.99/lb a while back and had picked up two racks. Made a dinner meal for five of us. I followed Malcom from HowToBBQRight's rack of lamb recipe and thought it turned out awesome. Lamb is so tasty, rich and tender. Cooked the lamb on the Weber 22" Kettle indirect until internal temperature reached about 118F. I tossed a big chunk of cherry wood on the grate on top of the coals as well. Seared directly over coals about two minutes each side. Let rest ten minutes, and dinner was served with spaghetti squash, a wilted spinach salad and some 5 cheese Mac n' Cheese.

Unfortunately dinner moved so quickly, so I didn't get so any plated shots..

Salted and Peppered them up:

Made a paste of the following ingredients: Dijon Mustard, Thyme, Rosemary, Parsley, garlic, shallot, olive oil.

All rubbed up and went into the fridge uncovered like this for another three hours.

Here it is after resting.

Damn that looks good. I like the rub. Might have to steal that next time I do a rack. Points for sure!

That looks great! I picked up some racks right after Thanksgiving while they were on sale and was planning to do this same recipe. I plan to use my Weber Kettle 22" also. Glad to hear it turned out well.

Thanks everyone! This is definitely going in the rotation of cooks throughout the year. I wish lamb was cheaper... I've always wanted to attempt to make gyro meat of some sort.

Fantastic looking rack of lamb! Like! In fact, I am not sure what I like better: beef or lamb.... Usually I cook leg of lamb bought from either Costco or Sam's club - just cheaper. Rack of lamb is pretty expensive but for $6.99 I would go for it right away.
