Salt & Pepper Mutton 'Staanrib' with lemon Juice

For those who have tasted a “staanrib” done right, there are few better ways to enjoy the true simplicity of South African mutton. “Staanrib” is the indirect way of cooking a whole mutton rib on a closed hinged grid next to a fire, leaning agains a fireplace wall or grid stand. This cooking method ensures a smoky result, with very crispy fatty edges (because the fat renders and rolls down as the meat is turned often). All it needs is a squeeze of lemon juice after slicing the whole rib into riblets - eaten straight from the grid, you’ll be licking your fingers!
