Lamb Chops pellet Grill Recipe BBQ smoker Lamb Chops

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood burning stove, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Ken and our dear friend Brian had a three hour project to work on and Patti wanted to make them a special dinner to thank them. Don’t tell them how easy it was. It has just two ingredients and 3 hours in the smoke. Perfect for a really warm night, when you have plenty of time and don’t want to turn the grill way up. Ken loves the loin chops from lamb and Patti prefers the shoulder chops, so we compromised and did both.

Directions: Lamb Chops

Place your chops in a large foil pan or jumbo zipper bag. Pour on the bottle of Country Bob’s Marinade. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight.

Cooking Directions: Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off. Set the temperature to 450 degrees and press the “Start” button. Give the grill about 15 minutes to reach temperature and the grates to burn clean.

Note: You can set the start temperature anywhere you want. I do 450 (230c) for a quick clean burn.

So after the grill comes up to temp and burns clean turn it back down to 180 degrees (80c). Place everything directly onto the grill and just let it hang out in the smoke and get happy for 3 hours or so. This is referred to as “Smoking” or “Hot Smoking”, the grill temperature is 180 degrees (80c). The lamb will pick up all the good flavor of the hickory smoke.

When the meat reaches an internal temp around 130 – 140 (55c) pull it off, cover it and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. This will be medium rare. Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 5-10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. So for medium pull it at 140 (60c) and overdone 160 (72c). I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About Our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion,
