These are not the typical lamb chops, but the ugly step sisters that you find on clearance below the expensive stuff. :wink: Growing up, I NEVER ate lamb...I guess that's because my father doesn't like it, and he banned it. Not sure why... my wife and I love it. We found these "Lamb Shoulder Round Bone Chops" on Sunday...

Image

I didn't know quite what to do with them, but I took my redneck brain to the pantry and found these ingredients that I thought might go tasty on them....

Image

Image

It needed something else, so I added some EVOO and fresh garlic....

Image

Marinaded this in the fridge for 24 hours...

Image

Threw some Cherry Wood on the Egg once the coals got hot....

Image

Here's the egg smoke-roasting away...the smell of the ingredients and the cherry wood was KILLER!!! I could detect the odor of the cherry, the peaches and the rosemary.

Image

Image

Served up with some of my wife's Greek Potatoes and Greek Salad....

Image

Also had a nice little glass of Merlot... Not sure what temperature I took the lamb to....just what felt right to the touch, for a rare to medium-rare.

Image

I will definitely be picking up this cut of lamb on a regular basis. It is like a hybrid between beef and pork.....has a wonderful "light" beefy flavor. Delicious, without any "gaminess".... Definitely good eats!

Looks mouthwatering.
Never saw that cut of lamb before.
Will have to be on the lookout for it.

Did the chops have much sweetness to them? Along with sugar, fruit is something I prefer to keep far, far away. :wink:

Thanks, fellas'... Brad, they weren't really sweet... These were also "LIte" peaches, so they didn't have a lot of heavy syrup in the can... but the peaches did add a nice kiss of fruitiness. They were real good... gonna pick up some more of these on Sunday.

I find the Lamb Shoulder Chops a bit tough to eat grilled med rare. They are kind of like "pork shoulder country ribs" or beef chuck. I personally love to do them braised or smoked lightly then braised. They can dry out but braising like short ribs works really well and they turn into fork tender pull apart meat.

These weren't that tough, but they were not as tender as lamb rib chops I've made in the past. Pretty tasty for the price. That's a good idea with the braising. I may have to give that a go.

Awesome job Dyal. The lamb and sides look great. I grew up eating lamb shoulder chops and love them like most people love pork chops.
