Roast Rack of Lamb

A rack of lamb is a very impressive-looking cut of meat that is relatively easy to cook on a closed BBQ, camp oven, or hot running smoker.

I like to cook this in a cast iron pan but can also be done in a traditional roasting style pan.

This recipe uses dried herbs which are easier camping but you can upgrade to fresh herbs and even push these into stab-holes to get a better flavor penetration.
