Quick and easy, these Smoked Lamb Lollipops are the perfect grilled lamb chops recipe. Smoked hot and almost like a rack before being cut into chops, get ready to meet your new favorite cut of lamb.
You can grill the whole rack of lamb or divide it into individual shoulder pieces. What you feel most comfortable with. Grilling will likely help you further brown the surface of each portion, but be careful. This makes the meat thinner and more prone to drying out or overcooking.
Remove silver skin
If you have previously cooked and smoked pork or beef ribs, they will be tougher because you have to remove the membrane. Also known as silver skin, this is a thick, rubbery layer that sits on the underside of the ribs. Some people like to leave it on, but cooking can get uncomfortable, so I recommend leaving it on.
As with pork or beef ribs, to remove the membrane, YOU simply use a dull knife to dig under the corner of the silvery skin. Use a paper towel to grab and peel off. Ideally, this will go away in one go, but it may take a few tries to complete. Once removed, be sure to trim off any other excess fat.
