Default Leg of Lamb & Brisket Cook (Pron)

I stopped by Restaurant Depot to pick up a packer and noticed a sale on leg of lamb at $3.19/lb. I picked up this Aussie bred 7.2 lb leg:


Cleaned up the meat side and removed the aitch bone:


Stuck slivers of garlic & rosemary into slits in the leg:


Vacuum sealed the leg in a marinade consisting of: fresh thyme, oregano, rosemary, crushed & minced garlic, lemon zest & juice, kosher salt, and EVOO.


The next morning the leg got a light coat of Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express:


The leg joined the packer on the XL Egg running at 345 degrees:


Pulled the leg at an IT of 120 and gave it a quick sear on the Large Egg:


Aimed to pull it off in the 132-135 range:


After a 15 minute rest I made the first slice:


Then sliced it up:


Plated it for lunch with a quinoa salad & some hobo veggies (fingerling potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, etc...):


The packer brisket was sliced for dinner:




With the exception of overeating, it was a great day!

Thanks for looking!
