Ingredients
Lamb Ingredients
  • 1 whole American rack of lamb
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
Herb Butter Paste Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of cumin
  • 1 tbsp of minced garlic
  • Salt & pepper
Instructions
  1. In your smoker, build up heat until you reach an even 225F. NOTE: I recommend using hickory or apple wood for subtle smoky flavor.
  2. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the Herb Butter Paste thoroughly.
  3. Rub rack of lamb with olive oil and season with salt & pepper. On the side without bones, rub the Herb Butter Paste evenly.
  4. Place lamb in smoker at 225F for 1.5-2 hours or until the internal temperature is at 135F (medium-rare). NOTE: About 15 minutes before pulling the lamb out, start a hot fire in order to sear the outside layers.

  5. When the lamb is ready, pull it out of the smoker and quickly sear the lamb on both sides for 1 minute each.
  6. Let lamb rest for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Enjoy your delicious and adventurous meal!
