Grilled Saddle of lamb (Double Loin)

— filed under: , , ,

Video Recipe - Roast lamb in the oven, or grilled in Weber grill. It is not very difficult to roast a whole lamb. Neither the oven or grill. In turn, arouses the always enthusiastic to wear such a large piece of meat on the table and cut it up there.

Grilled Saddle of lamb (Double Loin)

Rack of Lamb on the grill.


serves 4-6 people

  • ½ rack of lamb at 1½ kg (3 lbs) (2 ribs per person) 
  • rosemary, preferably fresh.
  • thyme, preferably fresh 
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper 


Get the butcher to cut the ribs on the back of the roast from the spine, or do it yourself with a good long saw. A wood saw is fine but a butchers saw or a hacksaw works best. This makes it easier to cut out the chops when it is done.

Avoid cutting into the meat as much as possible.

Score the back fat in ½ inch squares with a sharp knife.

Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper and season with the fresh rosemary, thyme and garlic.

Press a few cloves of garlic and some sprigs of fresh rosemary behind the sawn ribs.

Baking in the oven

Bake at a moderate heat, 150ºC (300ºF) for about 1½ hours depending on the thickness.

 Stop when the meat's internal temperature reaches 55ºC-57ºC (131ºF-135ºF). Personally, I prefer 55ºC (131ºF). There are many who think that is too rare, so you can give it a bit more, but above 60ºC (140ºF), I would not recommend.

Grilling with a kettle barbecue or gas grill.

If you use just one coal basket it corresponds approximately to 170ºC (340ºF) in a 57 cm (22.5 inch) Weber grill. The rack of Lamb should will need about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Add a log of beech wood, or other hardwoods on the grill over the coals so that it heats up the wood. It gives a good smokey flavor.
