How to make Traeger Grilled Lamb Chops

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.


Make the mint sauce

Combine all of the mint sauce ingredients together and whisk until combined.


Marinate the lamb

Use about 1/2 cup of the sauce to marinate the lamb. Let it soak for 30-60 minutes.



During the last 15 minutes of the marinating time, fire up the grill to 450°F and let it preheat.



You want medium-rare, ideally, so you’re only going to need to cook these for 3-4 minutes per side.



Let rest for a few minutes and enjoy! Serve with the rest of the mint sauce.

Traeger Grilled Lamb Chops FAQ

What kind of lamb chops work best for this recipe?

The difference between the lamb chop and the lamb loin chop is whether the rib comes from the side or lower portion of the lamb’s rib or the top of the rib. Pricy “rack of lamb” is the loin chop which is considered the most tender meat.

Either one works fine, and what you pick will probably be a combination of availability and price. In terms of flavor, both are delicious, don’t taste gamey, and work great on the grill.

What’s the best temperature to cook lamb chops?

The first rule of grilling lamb chops is that you need to make sure your grill is HOT. Grilled lamb chops cook very quickly, at about ten minutes per side. You ideally want a temp between 450-500°F.

The meat goes on for a high and hot sear to lock in the juices. Medium rare to medium is ideal for lamb. Rare is 120°F, medium rare 125°F, medium 130°F, and well done is 145°F and higher. Just remember, grilled lamb can taste slightly gamey when cooked past medium.

How do you get good grill marks on your lamb chops?

If you are feeling it, and want everyone to admire your hatch style grill marks, then make sure you do a 45 degree turn of the meat each time you flip it to create great grill marks, flipping every five minutes.

When you take the meat off the grill let it rest for about five minutes.

If you want the meat to have a bit more smoke flavor, then smoke the meat first in your Traeger or other brand of pellet grill or smoker for about 20 minutes at 180-225° in heavy smoke. It won’t cook much, but you will definitely add some additional smokiness.

What should you serve with grilled lamb?

I like to serve pasta or rice with lamb chops, personally. I recommend my Easy Buttered Noodles, which you see pictured with these easy chops. 

You could also make my Creamy Noodles if you want something a little heartier or my hearty mushroom pasta would be great too. 

Make up my easy grilled spinach for some more green things in your life. If you are in the mood for salad but don’t think you can handle any more Greek Freak in your life, I highly recommend my homemade Caesar dressing.

What is Greek Freak, and is it necessary?

Greek Freak seasoning from Spiceology is a blend of herbs and spices that is PERFECT in this recipe. They are high quality, don’t have fillers, and are reasonably priced. The spices include onion, dried orange peel, garlic, parsley, tomato, chili, sunflower oil, and salt. Really simple ingredients that come together to create something wonderfully complex, and they all work amazingly well on the grill.

This blend is something we use all the time at our house, and not just for lamb chops either!
