marinating in

1.5      cups L & P sauce

0.75    cups good extra virgin olive oil

0.5      cups balsalmic vinigar

2        shallotts finely chopped

1        handfull fresh garlic chives

2        handsfull fresh mint

1.5     teaspoons ground black pepper

1.5     teaspoons ground white pepper

0.25   teaspoon salt

5        tablespoons dried tomato with dried chili in olive oil found in pantry after a couple of years

1        bottle AU wines cabernet franc 2008 ( 1/2 in the marinade, 1/2 for me )

into the fridge for an overnight sleep

resting on trivet while the TRAEGER is fired up for smoking

something for the lamb to graze on while smoking

and here they are, all ready to eat.  sorry to tease you like this but i forgot to take a photo of it cut.

I love lamb shanks. In fact I love true lamb in almost any form.  I braise my lamb shanks, but I don't remember ever having smoked them.  I do have a couple in the freezer.  Hmmm?  Maybe it is time to smoke some?

Yours look really good, but like Al said, a sliced pic would be nice.

Thanks for posting!

Good luck and good smoking!
