Rack of Lamb

Whoa, whoa, whoa...stop the clock!  Someone got fancy!  Yes, a rack of lamb cooked low and slow to impress your date.  Pour a glass of Pinot, put on some Miles Davis and dim the lights because it is on.

Plan on one rack for two people.

What you'll need...

  • 1 rack of lamb
  • 1-2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh rosemary
Prepare your cooker for 250 degrees.  This can be prepared in the oven or in a smoker or grill with indirect heat.

Rub the rack with dijon mustard on both sides.  I used a coarse ground dijon for more texture, but any dijon will work.  You don't want to bathe the rack in the mustard, just a thin layer is fine.  Combine the other spices in a small bowl and sprinkle those on both sides of the rack.

If cooking in an oven, place the rack on a baking sheet, bone side down.  If on a grill place the rack on the grate, bone side up.  Cook to an internal temperature of 135 degrees, about an hour.  Remove from the cooker and let rest, tented in foil, for about 10 minutes.  Slice between the bones and serve.
