NZ Spring Lamb - Short Cut Leg
Picked up this beauty and decided to cook it up today.
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.
Let is rest while the rest of dinner was prepared.
It was tasty!
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 is a great looking cook, really great job! :thumb:
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.
Fanfarkingtstic job on the cook, the description, and the pix - very nicely done! Just beautiful!
Good to see ya. :thumb:
Nice looking leg you have.
Looks great John! I almost bought a leg of lamb the other day just cuz I want to cook one.....

Best Lamb I've sen here for a while.
I've been a bit slack with these lately, but you deserve this one!
That sure looks great but I didn't see any short cuts!
I've been thinking about trying a leg of lamb, never have before. Now I'm inspired! Looks fantastic, thanks for posting :thumb:
Fark! Did I miss a throwdown or something? That looks killer! :thumbup:
I got a ALF tick of approval!
