peat-smoked lamb lollipops in one hour
I ordered some peat chips last week, and when they arrived in the mail on Monday I decided to fire up the smoker and burn some just because I like the smell, which is similar to that of a good Scotch whisky.
Then I decided I may as well put something in the smoker, and what I had on hand was a rack of lamb. I cut it into two-bone lollipops and distributed them in the smoker, thinking I would smoke them for an hour (at 250įF by the door thermometer, FWIW) then finish them on the grill or under the broiler.
After an hour had passed, I took them out and they were done perfectly, no finishing required. And were they ever delicious!
I absolutely will do that again, and soon. Itís really nice to know that there are some things I can make in the evening after work in a relatively short time. Next week Iíll try the same technique with pork chops.
