Smoked pulled lamb? what a treat

slowcoooked Oct 22, 2010 06:16 AM

Has anyone else tried the smoked pulled lamb at Ruby's? Sure the place is overpriced by about 30 percent, my ala carte meal of 1/4 lb lamb, 1/2 pound pork ribs, and collards (really good ones, BTW) was 16 bucks before tip. pretty outrageous.

Equally outrageous was the newly added lamb. I've never had lamb bbq served "pulled" like pork, but that's how they do it at Ruby's. There's a spice in there I can't place but works so well with the rich lamb flavor. Anyone know its identity? Highly recommended !!!

      I haven't had the lamb at Ruby's but when I cook lamb, sage is a must for me. I may try smoking a lamb shoulder roast this weekend now that you mentioned it. I heart lamb.

        I like to coat the lamb with mustard, pat in some brown sugar and put it in a roasting pan with two cups of strong coffee. Roast until it hits 120 degrees. The gravy is amazing.
