    A good herbed quinoa goes well with lamb.
  4. I hit it with smoke for 40 minutes
    then I hit it right close to the coals to finish
    mediumish because my wife doesnt like blood very much
    cant wait to do it again

    Looks great!
  6. YUM!!!  I love those lamb racks!    I do mine up with a paste made from EVOO, chopped fresh Rosemary, and S&P. Slather 'em good for a few hours, and onto the grill. Luckily, my wife doesn't care for them, so I have to finish it all......   BTW, that rack looks huge compared to what I've been getting, where do you source yours? 

    Sorry, no ideas about sides, as after a whole rack and a couple glasses of somethin', there's hasn't been a need!!

  7. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy new week! Cheers! - Leah

    Wow! Those are some fine looking lollipops! They look absolutely perfectly cooked for my taste. I like my steaks a little more rare but lamb, for me, is best when it's just a shade under medium. As for a side item, we like to go simple. You already have Case's recommendation for a starch, so for a veggie how about sauteed squash? I usually take a Zucchini, a yellow squash, a couple sliced shallots and some sliced crimini mushrooms and saute them over high heat with salt and pepper, then finish with fresh thyme and a dash of either wine, sherry or vinegar. I cut the squashes in half lengthwise then slice on the bias to about 1/4".
  9. Im in Canada. It was -28c when I was smoking them lol
    I got those at Superstore. Imported from Austrilia
