Lamb is great, mutton is a different story, it’s an acquired taste that I’ve never acquired, and I buy two lambs a year so I like it.

If not Mississippi then as close as Birmingham. There's a good size Greek community in Birmingham and most of them are restaurateurs as all of the better eating joints are Greek owned. I got an uncle in law that's part of that group.

They have an annual Greek festival put on the the Greek Orthodox church.

Not to be confused with the Russian Orthodox one in Brookside.

BTW the Italians went into green grocers.

lamb is good stuff
you might want to get a few Katahdins they make good lawn mowers. they don't fight fences , they want to stay in a group
https://www.katahdins.org/

they are small enough that one person can easily butcher them alone

Lamb is great on the BBQ.
Used to get them direct fresh from the abbatoir when working south of here back in the day.

Make sure when you're buying LAMB, it's Not Mutton being sold as LAMB!

I like lamb best grilled medium rare, with garlic salt rubbed into it, with grilled pita bread, onions, tomatoes and mushrooms on the side. We used to mostly grill lamb steaks cut across the thigh bone. They were very good.

Small pieces of lamb liver, wrapped in bacon and grilled are very good too.

Goat is very good grilled too. It's a lot more milder flavored than lamb.

When butchering lamb, you have to be careful to keep the lanolin from the hair off the meat, otherwise lambs are very easy to butcher.

I didn't care for either one. Maybe I just didn't know how to do them up right. I just processed like a deer. The mutton was actually better than the lamb but both were baaaaad. Lamb was intact ram and maybe around 8 months old.

I'm going to stick to raising pigs. I haven't had a bad pig yet.

Always buy American Lamb….the Australian Lamb has a strong taste to it. For lamb ka-bobs, I cube the meat from a leg of lamp and just marinate it in a simple Italian Salad Dressing ovah night

I trapped and stayed on a sheep ranch for a few weeks in the fall far about 8 years and the lamb chops the old gal made were better than any pork chop I ever ate.
