Grate the onion using a box grater into a bowl. Add the garlic, olive oil, rosemary, the BlenZ and the pepper. Stir to combine. Place the lamb chops in a resealable freezer bag and pour in the marinade. Toss evenly to coat. Place in the refrigerator for 4 hours – turning once or twice.
Preheat an oiled grill to medium-high. Remove the lamb from the marinade and shake off the excess.
Discard the marinade and season the chops with the salt. Stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Grill the lamb over indirect heat and cook until deep golden, about 4 minutes, then turn over and cook another 3 minutes – depending on the thickness of your chops. If using an internal read thermometer, once the meat reaches 135F, remove the lamb from the grill and rest for 10 minutes.
