Top 10 Lamb Recipes

The Most Popular and Best Lamb Recipes at Barbecue & Grilling


I've always said that Lamb is the most overlooked meat on the market. This wonderful meat is the mainstay of some of the oldest cooking traditions on earth and now something people turn up a nose to without even trying. This is truly a shame. Lamb (and mutton) makes a great meal from Owensboro Mutton Barbecue to leg of lamb to lamb chops to rack of lamb. Trust me on this and try one of these great lamb recipes. You will find yourself searching out lamb again and again.
