6.groucho, as someone who used to frequent Brixton, I'm surprised and appalled you don't know what a shank is! :lol:

Chump Chops are my favourite - more meat than a cutlet and more juicy.
That's why I was wondering, Pat. I can't imagine a villain pulling some lamb from his pocket to threaten a victim.
It would make for an excellent signature move though

Perfect.
I have to agree, English lamb is the nicest I've had.

Lamb is ok, but is a distant third in the great triumvirate of non avian roasts. In fact I'd put it 4th behind bambi.

Lamb shank is lovely though.

Lamb is ok over here. Though it’s all pellet fed and lacks good grass fed taste.

Hopefully this year will be better with the better weather.

Good NZ lamb not easy to get over here except in fine restaurants. Most of it has been refrigerated for ages getting here.

The superior quality of Welsh lamb would destroy NZs sheep farming industry if the NZ people ever had it.
It’s always amused me that the taffs and keewees have this spat about which lamb is better when neither are as good as Karoo lamb.

Meh, I don’t like my meat to taste of Aquafresh. Karoo bos ruins the flavour of the lamb. :thumbdown:

I'd rather just have an old school leg of lamb and roast spuds with some good quality gravy thanks very much.

Have very fond memories of many a weekend roasts with the family. Like many kiwis I guess.

'mericans aren't too keen on lamb however, which is a huge disgrace.

What always amuses me is people comparing the mainstream standard products against a specialty version as if it's a true comparison. How much of the welsh lamb production is salt marsh lamb for example?

Reminds me of people who say Spanish or French wine is shite because having discovered they can buy a litre of wine for a euro, that's all they try.

Meat is murder, you monsters

What's worse than murder, though, is parochialism about cooking. Sad behaviour.

Karoo Shmaroo I couldn't give a flying fudge quite frankly. All f**king lamb is delicious!

The real answer is, as my physics teacher used to say, 'It all depends'.
Neck chops for a delicious stew.
Rack of lamb for a delicious roast.
Slow roasted leg for the best cold meat sandwiches known to man. Well, ok, nearly as good as slow roasted leg of wild pig cold meat sandwiches. Fair enough.
Shanks are ok.

While Welsh lamb is fine, I don't think I have ever eaten it outside of the UK.

I'm sure its available but it doesn't seem to be marketed very well.

Turkish lamb is delicious, and the fcukers are huge. Some of the ones they have rotating in kebab shops must weigh 50kg.

Yes, they arent. I think it is probably more to do with the huge beef industry there as opposed to actually the taste of Lamb.

Having said that, give me a rib eye, sirloin, beef stew or short rib anyday over lamb.

Saltmarsh lamb is very good and dinstintive although the majority of people wouldnt be able to distinguish between NZ and Welsh lamb if they were presented with both at a blind tasting.

Sprouts, Trader’s Joe and Sam’s Club all have Kiwi lamb.

I understand that Welsh lamb is banned from the US due to higher import quality Standards and animal welfare and hygiene concerns (or some other reason I don’t know about).

Lambshanks and mash would be my favourite pub food but stands at about 10th favourite for home meals. Prime spot there would be a sunday lamb or hogget (either one) roast with the trimmings.

I use a Big Green Egg and love it. A friend of mine has a Treager and swears by it. Word of caution when smoking lamb, use a more subtle wood like apple or you'll overpower the lamb
