    Man..are they GOOD! I have never had straight lamb.. <Nor a gay one either...heh> But now I'm bummed I have missed some really delicious meat. Got a rack of ribs, stripped the membrane. Boy those are some LOOONG suckers.. like almost 10 inches! Anyway, rubbed with:

    1 Tbsp rosemary
    1 Tbsp savory
    1 Tbsp store mix lemon/pepper stuff
    1 Tbsp whole mustard seed
    1 Tbsp Kosher salt
    1/2 Tbsp paprika
    1/2 Tbsp dill, dried
    1/2 Tbsp "Smitty's 6-15" grounf pepper mix <PM me for info..it's great!>

    Did a light 1 hour smoke over apple. Foiled, into a 225 degree oven for 1.5 hours. Uncovered, basted with juices, then the broiler on high for maybe 5 min. to crust up the tops.

    Lots of fat in these buggers. Hindsight..i'd slo-cook in the oven longer to render out a bit more fat, but WOW!

    Flavor up the ying-yang!

    Give 'em a try!

    A customer of mine buys whole hogs/beef& lamb and has his butcher custom cut. It's the bottom half of a rack...no reason ya could not try this with a rack instead of just the ribs. Reason he had these, is he likes his racks with just loin and little rib. Sooo I got the "scrap". :{)
