NZ Spring Lamb - Short Cut Leg
 
Picked up this beauty and decided to cook it up today.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-n...6/IMG_1670.JPG


First I made up a batch of Herbes de Provence

2 Tbl dried thyme
2 Tbl dried basil
2 Tbl fennel seed
1 Tbl oregano
1.5 Tbl Lavender flowers
1 tsp chopped fresh sage
1 tsp fresh rosemary

I used the mortar pestle my son gave me for Christmas to crush the herbs, and the lavender came from the french lavender plant in the backyard.

I then took the lamb and removed all the silverskin and fat.

I then sliced up kalamata olives, garlic, and rosemary and inserted these into slits I cut in the lamb.

Took coarse salt, herbes de provence, crushed peppercorns, and finely chopped rosemary and mixed up to use as the rub.

Put on the offset for 3.5 hours at ~235, until it hit 135 IT.

Beautiful leg of lamb, Sir. What an interesting idea with the lavendar and the cut olives -- I like them both. I have two legs of lamb just like yours sitting in the fridge waiting for Gore to call the next TD. I'd be thrilled to get good pron like you posted.

That looks great! I made a leg of lamb using a similar recipe for the inaugural cook on my 26" Weber. It was the best lamb I ever had.
