Cooking for 6 people


  • 2 whole 8-bone lamb racks, frenched*
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt or your seasoning of choice

For the Sauce:

  • 1 oz fresh mint leaves
  • 1 oz fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • pinch of salt, to taste

1 Food Prep

Coat your lamb racks with the olive oil, then season them with salt or your preferred seasoning.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 350°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.
  • Place your lamb racks fat side down, directly over the charcoal and cook for 1–2 minutes per side. Lamb has a good amount of fat and may flare up on the grill, so watch it closely and use caution. If the flames begin to flare, flip your lamb straight away.
  • When you’ve seared both sides of your lamb, move it away from the coals to the cooler side of the grate and close the lid.
  • While your lamb is cooking, prepare the sauce by combining all of your sauce ingredients into a blender or high velocity food processor and blending for 2–3 minutes until emulsified.
  • When your lamb reaches an internal temperature of 125–130°F, remove it from the grill and cover it with foil. This should take about 15–20 minutes.
  • Rest your lamb for about 10–15 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 145°F.
  • * Frenched means that the meat between the bones has been removed, and
  • the bones scraped clean. If you can’t find a frenched rack, this recipe will
  • work with a non-frenched rack, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to cook lamb! So much tastier than cooking lamb in the oven. A nice seared lamb will please the whole family. Not too difficult, either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Delicious! 😊 Perfect summer time grilled dinner and easy to make. While allowing the lamb to cook while over the cooler side of the grill, you will have enough time to make the mint sauce to go with it. It is a perfect combination to share with even those who have a picky palette.
