Cooking Method
4 to 6

Special Equipment: Cameron Stovetop Smoker; post oak or other favorite wood chips, soaked in water

2 racks of lamb, frenched

Olive oil

2 cups Pitmaster Pete’s Sweet Chile Rub (this recipe can be found here)


Chile-Rubbed Smoked Lamb Chop Lollipops


Using a sharp knife, cut the racks of lamb along the bones into individual chops—you’ll have about 14 chops. They should be small and resemble lamb “lollipops.” Lightly brush all the surfaces of the lamb with the olive oil.

Pour the rub onto a piece of waxed paper. Holding each chop by the bone, dredge each side of the chop through the rub to coat the entire outside of each chop.

Once the chips start to smoke, place the chops in the center of the cooking grate and smoke-cook for about 15 minutes for rosy rare like the picture or a little longer for medium (pink) rare. The chops are best cooked to rare, but cook to your preferred level of doneness.

Additional Tips

Note: My preferred method is using the Cameron Stovetop Smoker. Set up the smoker per the manufacturer’s instructions, using the oak wood chips made for the Cameron Smoker.

Smoke with the lid closed for 7 to 10 minutes on high heat or until done to your likeness.
