Step 1

Pat lamb racks dry with paper towel. Season with steak spice. Rub with 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil. Set aside. To make basting sauce for lamb, whisk together barbecue sauce, beer, 1 tbsp (15 mL) vinegar and 1 tbsp (15 mL) maple syrup. Set aside.

Step 2

Toss asparagus with 1 tbsp olive oil. Set aside. To make dressing for asparagus, mix remaining olive oil, vinegar and maple syrup, plus the grainy mustard, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 3

Place lamb racks on grill preheated to high. Cook 2 min. per side, or until browned. Move lamb to one side of grill, turning off burner directly under meat. Set heat on adjacent burner to medium. Cook 15 to 20 min. -- basting with barbecue sauce mixture in last 5 min. -- until internal temperature of lamb registers 145 °F (63°C) for medium-rare, or until desired doneness. Remove lamb from grill. Tent with foil 5 to 10 min.

Step 4

Meanwhile, increase grill heat to medium-high. Grill asparagus, turning often, until tender, 5 to 8 min. Slice and plate chops. Serve alongside grilled asparagus drizzled with reserved dressing.
