Hey there, stud! That said, the culinary use of “stud” is actually a verb. As in “I studded that lamb last night.” You did what to lamb last night? You stuck the surface full of whole spices or otherwise inserted tasty food matter into it.

Examples: sticking tons of cloves into a honey-glazed ham before baking or making incisions in roasts or legs of lamb and shoving cloves of garlic in there for a penetrating flavor experience.
