I was browsing the food-related blogs when I came across this post on smoked lamb shanks. This looks like a must-try one as much as I like lamb. Even though it’s not quick, it certainly would do for single-serving cooking–and I can dream of some things to do with leftovers.
While I don’t have a smoker, I do have a Weber kettle grill, and Cook’s Illustrated has had some how-to articles on smoking using the kettle grill, so I think that I’m going to have to try this one.The July/August 2011 issue had an article (and video) on smoking chicken that makes it look possible to do the lamb shanks on the kettle grill with adjustments to time and only a little modification of technique.
I think this is going to be my Fourth of July food, even if the weather is hot and humid–I’ll just hope that it doesn’t rain!
