Smoked lamb ribs - juicy and delicious

Smoked Lamb Ribs can be a an intense burst of flavour with smoke, lamb and sauce combining in one awesome bite sized lamb rib. They are often very underestimated for smoking. Don’t let their size be deceiving! During the cook they pull up very nice as you can see in the picture above, the secret to this is we only use Texel lambs which have great meat coverage all over.

  • The same recipe can be used for gas smokers and pallet smokers.
  • Adding a water pan to you smoker is important to help prevent any drying during the cooking process.
  • Low and slow is about visual & feel cooking just as important as timed cooking, be sure to take notice of feel and look so you can adjust if need be.
