    I love lamb shanks. In fact I love true lamb in almost any form.  I braise my lamb shanks, but I don't remember ever having smoked them.  I do have a couple in the freezer.  Hmmm?  Maybe it is time to smoke some?

    Yours look really good, but like Al said, a sliced pic would be nice.

    Thanks for posting!

    Good luck and good smoking!
