    Did smoked Lamb Shanks for the first time yesterday. Got them in a pack of two at the local publix supermarket for about $6. After some research on here and Google, I went with a red wine reduction with beef stock, worcestershire sauce, garlic, and chopped up onions. I just let the shanks smoke above the tray on the smoker. Took about 4.5 hours at about 225 degrees, and I used pecan wood. The internal temp when I pulled them was about 170 degrees.

    The red wine reduction was a little strong, but most of it dried up. I was able to pour the reduction and onion onto the shanks though, and wrapped them in foil and let them rest for about 30 minutes. Sorry I forgot to get a pic of it sliced open.

    My girlfriend and I were both impressed with how they turned out. Very tender and great flavor. Plenty of juices as well. It went very well with my baked potato! Here's a couple of pics. Enjoy!

    Oh and I also took a little bit of olive oil and my homemade pork rub and rubbed em good, wrapped em and let em sit over night in the fridge. About 16 hours total.

    They look great. Always thought they were a very flavour packed cut of meat.

    Walmart haha

    Thanks guys. I want to try again with some larger sizes. These were only under 3/4lb a piece and have heard you can get em around a pound each. I've never seen them anywhere else other than publix though. Time to do some research! 🍻
