Rack of Lamb cut into individual Rib chops is definitely one of my favorite cooks. I just enjoy it so much, and it always delivers not only a truly fun cook, but an amazingly tasty savory treat as well. I used to cook Rack of Lamb whole in the traditional manner, until Ausie Joe, said "Hey Mate" if you cut those chops before you cook them, each one is an end cut, that's the way we do it in OZ. Well, I have never cooked a whole intact rack since that fateful day. Joe was definitely right. I had no idea what we would have for dinner today and decided at the last minute as we walked through CostCo to pick up a rack of New Zealand Lamb and some fingerling potatoes. I already had some heirloom carrots and thought the two would blend well. 

 

Use a thin boning knife to cut the Rack into individual chops. You will need to angle your blade to slide past the joint.

Slather the chops in good olive oil and sprinkle liberal with minced garlic, Salit and Pepper, and herbs of your choice. I like Rosemary, Thyme, and Oregano. I also use some lemon zest, and Spanish Paprika. I leave that chunk of fat because most of it renders off during the cook, but leaves and amazingly tasty bit behind. Lamb fat IMO is pretty darn close to pork fat in flavor. 

 

For a side, I made a cast-iron pan of fingerling potatoes, onions, and heirloom carrots and chicken broth

Hers the pan of potatoes and the Rib Chops on my Egg. I put the Potatoes and Carrots on about 45 min before I dropped the chops on the grill.

Beautiful cook, beautiful scenery and beautiful plating. I think you nailed every single bit of that cook. I’m pretty sure I could pick a keeper cook out of a lineup any day. :)

 

Good to see you able to cook on the Kamado and have some potential for precipitation.
