Default Rack of Pork (thought I had lamb...)

i was in costco and bought rack of pork (I had rack of lamb in my hand). The label suggests cooking like i would a rack of lamb. Sear it w/ rosemary and thyme then indirect heat to temp. Anyone have a better suggestion on how to cook it? I want to smoke it. I would not smoke lamp but will pork.

You can smoke Lamb... in fact you should smoke lamb... even if it is a little rack. Agreed, lamb is great grilled, but it can be AWESOME smoked. Search some threads here and see what you think!

That sounds like a good plan. I like rosemary on pork. Of course, since it's pork you'll have to cook it to a higher internal temp than lamb. I would take it to 145 internal and then let it rest for a bit before slicing.

All good advise. You should smoke lamb. Can't imagine why you said you would never?

As for the pork, I love low and slo like a prime rib. I just use S & P and make slits and put small pieces of garlic in it. 145 sounds perfect to me.

Good Luck

Yes...I've "smoked" one of these from Costco...actually indirectly grilled on an 18.5" Weber with charcoal. I used Bad Byron's Butt Rubb, which is my favorite on just about everything from chicken to burgers to steak...and of course, pork. Cooking temps/rest was done just as Ron says above. IT TURNED OUT FABULOUS...had my brother in town and he thought I was a genius. Sadly, I can't find these pork ribs on a regular basis at Costco. Q on without fear, brother!

I love my lamb cooked to sear the outside and med-rear. I could smoke it but I like the way i do lamb so no reason to change. I think i will smoke the rack of pork. I sure was surprised when I got home.
