Absolutely not! We get asked this question all the time by folks that have never tried lamb or maybe bought it at a restaurant and experience a strong or gamey flavor. Here’s the deal, a sheep that is over a year old is considered mutton, and that can have a strong or gamey flavor. However, lamb that is less than a year old, referred to as lamb, is absolutely the most delicious meat ever. Its tender, well marbled and flavorful red meat. If you haven’t ever tried lamb, or you want to give it a try, we highly recommend Dry Branch lamb. PS, the best way to cook  chops is on a flat grill or cast iron pan in butter in our opinion!
