    Olive oil, rosemary, black pepper. Smoke till 145 med.rare and wrap in foil and then wrap in a towel and give it an hour or two to rest. It's that simple.

    I used to make a stuffed lamb breast in the meat department many years ago.  I'd cut the meat off the ribs almost to the edge, then fold it under the ribs making a pocket, then stuff it with lean ground lamb and pork trimmings and tie it up.  You'd take it home and mix up some stuffing and lay it on the top, then roast it to 160° internal and serve; yum!

  11. Lamb breast is a very fatty but if done correctly fantastic cut of meat that many chefs prize internationally! It's important to trim all silver skin, marinate, rub and smoke at a low 240 to 275 temp... depending on how large they are you can expect the cooking time to  range anywhere from 4 to 6 hrs. Many different variations of rub or marinade will work from classic bbq to northern chinese cumin/chili to south east asian palm sugar & baby anchovy. REMEMBER, these are from the lamb breast and are not the same in any way shape or form to a classic "rack" of lamb. To cook these rare would be the same as trying to cook a pot roast rare!
