John had a little lamb
Ok not all that little.

8lb boneless leg of lamb, covered in a Dijon vinaigrette, s&p and into the fridge to marinate

This recipe is adapted from Tyler Florence's Ultimate Grilled Leg of Lamb, and has been a big hit the times I have made it in the past.

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grilling
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 boneless leg of lamb, butterflied but not tied
To a blender, add: the oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, thyme, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard, season with salt and pepper, to taste. Blend until thoroughly combined. Pat the lamb dry and put it on a shallow platter. Season all over with salt and pepper (i added garlic powder too). Pour half of the vinaigrette over the lamb, turning the meat to get it well coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove the marinated meat from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before grilling.
Heat the grill (or large cast iron skillet) and oil it lightly. Remove the lamb from the marinade and grill for about 15 to 20 minutes per side for medium-rare. (Adjust the time accordingly for other degrees of doneness.) Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.

Sounds good!:cool: Eight pounds and it was still a lamb?

Yes it is the whole leg/shoulder and it's boneless. It comes butterflied and netted. I cut the netting off, and will open up the butterfly on the Weber in the am.

If it turns out like past ones, it is a thing of beauty.
