If you want lighter fare than beef but still desire red meat, lamb is a succulent choice. While lamb ribs may seem smaller than their pork and beef counterparts, they certainly aren't lacking in the flavor department. It is slightly gamey, but these Smoked Lamb Ribs will turn out oh so delicious.

This recipe uses both a dry rub and wet chipotle rub. The reverse sear cooking method brings it to perfection. Carve and get ready to enjoy!
