[Metro] New Zealand Fresh Lamb Shoulder Chops $4.99 lb.

BBQ Season is here.
Metro (YMMV) have fresh New Zealand grass fed lamb shoulder chops for $4.99 lb.
I picked up several packages (stock the freezer time) at the store at Bathurst & Steeles in Toronto this afternoon.
I grilled them over lump charcoal on a Visions Kamado tonight and they came out quite good (seasoned them with a baste of olive oil, fresh garlic and rosemary).

Kept at exactly zero degrees Celsius, the lamb meat does not freeze and can be legally sold as fresh, and has a best before date of about 6 weeks, plenty of time for the boat trip from New Zealand (about 2 weeks to Canada).

This is one of my favourite meats. I cook it with lots of cumin and paprika.

Try to find fresh Ontario lamb at your local butcher. They are easier better than any Australian or New Zealand ones.

How do you know they are easier?
Do Aussie/ Kiwi lambs require extra wining and dining before they give it up?
...if so, that’s baaaaad
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.

You can also get it whole. Just smoked a whole lamb shoulder and it was delicious. Just like lamb leg but cheaper.
