Bet that tasted as good as it looks. Hope that gets you to grilling more lamb now. I wish more people in this country would eat lamb - heck, 1,000,000 coyotes can't be wrong!

Very nice, Askanison! Was the meat nice and mild?

I'm as guilty as anyone of not grilling more lamb. Even though it was fine the last time I cooked some I still have that fear of getting some that's too muttony, and the lamb that I know won't be comes with a pretty stiff price tag. Still, once in awhile wouldn't kill me...

yes it was nice and mild.
a little fatty but the price was inexpensive, so i went for it to give it a try.
i'll be trying again.

Maybe I should try lamb/mutton sometime. Never had it in front of me, nor have I been around anywhere it is served as far as I know.

Jay, based on my extremely limited experience if you do try lamb try to get some from a younger, smaller animal as the meat will have a milder flavor. One of the suppliers around here has a 10 month/150 pound rule .

Great looking lamb chops, Askanison! :cheers:

SC - That's if you like it mild (I don't always). Here's another tip for finding the mildest lamb: look for spring lamb. Outside the US that's a common term for the youngest, most tender and mildest lamb and it's usually 3-5 months old. It's expensive but it's great stuff.

"Lamb" in a lot of countries outside the US refers to sheep that's 12 months old or less. However, from what I've seen, in the US it can mean sheep of any age, and that means you could actually be buying mutton.

Since I happen to like grilled mutton, I look for it. And I look for it specifically because I don't want to pay the higher price for mutton disguised as lamb. :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
