Barbecued Lamb Chops Recipe

At Eastertime and for other holidays, I often get requests for these lamb chops. The moist and tender chops aren't difficult to make, but they taste special. Even people who don't care for lamb like it prepared this way.—Chris Nash, Berthoud, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:9 servings

  • 1 teaspoon salt-free garlic and herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 18 lamb rib chops (1 inch thick and 4 ounces each)
