Lamb Chops

I don’t like lamb but Murray does, so I put some lamb chops on the BBQ yesterday for him! They are not a first cut lamb chop but these have more meat per chop & are thick so he was a happy guy!

I made a quick spice rub & then put the lamb chops on the grill. Ii just looked in my spice drawer & put this together. Murray said it was delicious so we will have to take his word for it since I do not eat lamb….haha….but he said the spice rub was ‘blog worthy’ so here it is! Murray does not like everything I we can trust him on this!

Here is the recipe 


4 Lamb shoulder chops or any cut of lamb chops


Spice Rub  

*** if you have more chops then I did, increase the quantitiies of the spice rub because this was just enough for this many chopes

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp mustard

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp onion powder



  1. I turned my BBQ on while I prepared the lamb chops to cook them
  2. Mix up the spice rub by putting all of the ingredients into a bowl & mix it together
  3. Sprinkle the spice rub on both sides of the lamb chops & rub it in
  4. I put the chops on the BBQ & had the heat just below high… seared them on the first side & I watched to see that they did not over-cook on the first side & they were still very rare. I turned them over.
  5. I took a pastry brush & brushed a light coating of oil on the first side.
  6. When the second side was seared but not cooked, I turned the lamb chops over again so that the first side that was on the grill is now on the heat again…
  7. Taking the same pastry brush, brush some oil on the second side.
  8. Then turn the chops over again to cook the second side
  9. The oil sears it up nicely…..
  10. I did not put the oil on at the beginning because I did not want the oil to burn before the chops could be cooked through a bit…they were thick. I your lamb chops are not thick I think you can oil them right away since you do not want to over cook them…unless you like them well done
  11. Just before removing the lamb chops from the grill I turn them on their side to cook the fat that was along the edges of the meat. I do not like that fat uncooked so I sear all visible fat….if it is too much on the chops I trim it first but I did not trim these so I cooked it.
