Questions about smoking a leg of lamb
I've got a 7.5 pound bone-in leg of lamb. Plan to stuff it with some garlic cloves. Rub down the exterior with some oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook it in a UDS.

What temp would you recommend in the smoker? Estimated time to cook this chunk of meat?

Thanks for any advise you can give a novice cook. Merry Christmas! :help:

Try smoker temp at 225 - 250 degrees F. Smoke with Alder, pecan, grape is best. Internal meat temp 140 Degrees F [Rare] Well done 160 Degrees F

Thank you, sir. It is in the smoker - holding steady at 230 deg. F. :grin:

I'd give it a go doing hot and fast, which is how I do most of my smokes on the UDS. Temp around 275-325. It will also shorten your cook time considerably, by up to 50%. I'd pull it when it hits 150 and let rest for 30 mins. If you can get some fresh rosemary, I'd add that to your rub as pics of your cook!
