[Metro] (GTA?) Fresh Lamb Shoulder Chops $4.44 lb

It's BBQ season and there's nothing better than the smell (and taste) of lamb cooked over charcoal.
Flyer says 100% grass fed with no antibiotics.
Fresh not frozen.

it's good lamb but not really made for the bbq unless you cook it very low and slow. lamb shoulder is more suited to a long slow braise to make it tender.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.

Though I have never experienced tough lamb chops when I BBQ them - can anyone advise if they have tried sous vide and reverse sear of lamb shoulder chops? (Anova guide says 2 hrs.)

I've found on occasion lamb shoulder chops can have some tender parts and some tough parts to them. A braise might be OK., but I've never done it.

Can't tell if there are bones, you might be able to grind it to make some good lamb burgers perhaps.

My lamb buys have been either rack of lamb (only if I can find a good sale) or leg of lamb.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

They have the bone.
2 years ago they would sell it for 2.99, then it moved to 3,49, then 3.99, and now it's 4.49.

Go to Globe Meats, they have Fresh Ontario Lamb racks for 11.99/lb, there is a huge difference it taste when comparing New Zealand and Ontario.

These New Zealand shoulder chops cook good on the bbq, try and get the blade portion, don't get the arm portion that has the round bone.

I used my Anova sous vide yesterday - rinsed the chops - sprinkled some Rosemary on them - into the ziplock bags - after 3 hours @ 60C they were an unappetizing whitish grey colour.
Threw them on the Kamado with charcoal and they turned the normal lamb colour as they grilled.
They came out fork tender - eaten with a dash of Worcestershire sauce on the chops.

That actually sounds pretty good! And even tasty

Next time instead of buying those bones, just ask them for a whole piece of lamb shoulder and have them cut it up abit thicker, paying 3.99/lb for those lamb bones is a rip off. If they can sell that stuff for 3.99/lb thats a bonus.
