Lamb chops are always a winner at a barbecue as they’re quick to cook, easy to eat with your hands and ever popular. Chops come from a prime area of the lamb, which means they’re more expensive than tougher cuts such as lamb shank, but the succulent, tender meat is definitely worth the higher price tag as it’s much easier to prepare and cook.
Ensure the barbecue is very hot and allow the chops to come to room temperature before cooking
Brush the chops with olive oil and season with salt
Place the chops onto the hottest part of the barbecue and cook for a few minutes on each side for medium. If you like your meat well done simply cook for a little longer
Remove from the barbecue and leave to rest for around five minutes
Try marinating the chops with herbs and garlic or chilli before cooking, or rub spices such as coriander, cumin or mustard into the chops for extra flavour.
You could also try adding different types of wood chips to your barbecue to give the lamb a deep, smoky flavour.
