This is another “recipe in progress” but it was such a beautiful cook that I had to stick the photos someplace! This was my first try at grilling lamb chops. I didn’t get it perfect but it was close enough that I was doing a little happy dance!
These chops were beautiful from the start. They got rubbed with rosemary, garlic, salt and black pepper and were plank grilled over high heat.
These chops has a beautiful little fat cap that turned an incredible golden brown while grilling.
It only took 35 minutes for the chops to hit 145F and they looked about perfect at that point.
Lamb has MUCH more flavor than commercial pork. Combining the flavors of the lamb with the smoke, garlic and rosemary was almost too much.
This was also an excuse to show off my new walnut cutting board 🙂
While the lamb tasted incredible it was a little tougher than I expected. I may have hit it with too much heat too fast. On the next go round I will treat these like a thick steak and do a reverse sear on them.
I think I can keep them tender by cooking at low temperatures but at some point they will need some high heat to crisp up that beautiful fat.
Have you got any tips for killer lamb chops? I would love to hear them!
