These are wonderful if using thick loin chops - they cook really fast though on a charcoal grill. Recipe source: local newspaper.

I can't rate this appropriately since I couldn't find juniper berries anywhere, so I used bay soaked in gin. It just didn't add any flavor. The lamb was great anyway you prepped it so not all was lost. I will have to attempt this again if I can find juniper berries. Thank you so much for posting. Made for ZWT 6
