What's this?

We’re smoking then roasting lamb shanks, adding in incredible wood-fired flavor into this classic recipe. This easy-to-make recipe starts by smoking the shanks for an hour before braising in a red wine and beef broth bath.

Ingredients

  • 4 Whole Lamb, shanks

  • As Needed Traeger Prime Rib Rub

  • 1 Cup beef broth

  • 1 Cup red wine

  • 4 Sprig fresh thyme or rosemary

Steps

  • 1

    Season the lamb shanks liberally with Traeger Prime Rib Rub.
  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 3

    Place the shanks directly on the grill grate and cook for 20 minutes or until the exterior has browned.
  • 4

    Transfer the shanks to a dutch oven and pour in beef broth, wine, and add herbs. Cover with a tight fitting lid and place back on the grill grate reducing the temperature to 325℉ (160 C).
  • 5

    Braise the shanks for 3-4 hours until the internal temperature is 180℉ (85 C). Take care not to touch bone with the tip of the temperature probe or you will get a false reading.

    Carefully lift the lid and transfer the lamb and any accumulated juices to a platter or plates. Enjoy!
