What is the best temperature for lamb?
Lamb is “the other red meat” and it is very similar to beef in terms of internal cooking temp. 145 degrees Fahrenheit is recommended. That gives you medium rare, which is best for flavor and texture with lamb.
Have you ever cooked out in the open?
5 Tips for Easy Camp Cooking:
- Color coded dining: Reduce waste and make sure everyone knows who is drinking out of what cup. Have a set of metal or plastic plates, utensils, and a cup in a unique color for each member of the campsite. Makes those late-night cocktails not get so mixed up and makes it easy to see if everything’s been cleaned up at the end.
- No Fear Eggs: Crack your eggs and store them in a sealed glass jar ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about their delicate shells
- Foil packets: Trap heat and moisture when cooking over the open flame by creating packets out of heavy-duty or two layers of aluminum foil. It’s an easy trick that requires no cleanup and doesn’t dirty a pan.
- Packeted Spice Mix: Don’t settle for bland – have your spices mixed and ready to go in small ziplock bags. You can still season your recipes and never forgo flavor.
- Take it to the next level – store each recipe, and its various packets in quart bags so that they don’t commingle as you are digging for the mayo.
Now get active and let’s grill some lamb!
