Lamb Ribs Ingredients:
  • 2 American Lamb Ribs like from Porter Road
  • 2 tbsp of Yellow Mustard
  • 2 tbsp of Black Pepper coarse
  • 1.5 tbsp of Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp of Chipotle Powder
  • 2 tsp of Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp of Cumin
Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup of Ketchup
  • ¼ cup of Chipotles in Adobo Sauce pureed
  • 2 tbsp of Raw Honey
  • 3 garlic cloves pressed
  • 1.5 tbsp of Brown Sugar
  • ½ Lime juiced
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Using a knife, slice a crisscross pattern over the top fat of the lamb ribs to help rendure during smoking. Lather the ribs in yellow mustard then season thoroughly with the black pepper, sea salt, chipotle powder, garlic powder, and cumin.
  2. Using a grill or smoker, start your fire with natural wood charcoal for an indirect cook. Set the grill/smoker for a consistent 225F.
  3. When grill/smoker is ready, place lamb ribs on and cook for about 2 hours.
  4. About 1 hour before the ribs are ready, cook over fire or on your stovetop with your bbq sauce pan. Add all the Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce ingredients to pan and bring to a low boil. Let cook for 5-8 minutes to fully immerse.
  5. About 30 minutes before the ribs are ready, pour Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce over top of ribs and lather. Kick up your smoker for the last 30 minutes to 300-350F to caramelize the ribs. Once ribs are around 205F internal, pull them off and let rest for 8-10 minutes.
  6. Slice ribs and enjoy!
