Default Smoked leg of lamb with mango jalapeno slaw wrapped in a guajillo tortilla

I have NEVER cooked lamb in my life let alone had a recipe to use. My idea actually came from a couple areas but primarily I thought fruit needed to be included.

First things first, I initially wanted to impart a good flavor throughout the meat with a marinade. So, a modified Al Pastor marinade (pineapple/orange juice) was used and I let the meat marinate for 24 hours before it thought of seeing a smoker.

During the cook I wanted a nice crust to form so the last 10* I used my home made bbq sauce (includes pineapple juice.) The sauce has a nice sugar content that allows for a great looking crust.

Finally, I needed something more to make this a meal so I Made some of my mango jalapeno slaw to go with the lamb. I love tortillas as a food delivery vehicle so I went with a guajillo tortilla recipe I had.

Wrapped everything up and chowed down. It didn't suck ;)

Mui bueno!

Used my mango jalapeno slaw recipe I posted previously (modified to included one shredded jicama): Mango Jalapeno Slaw

Ingredients


All mixed up


Then, I made some of my sweet n' spicy bbq sauce posted earlier:
Hooks sweet n’ spicy BBQ sauce

The next thing that needed to be pre-made was the marinade:
Achiote marinade
  • Achiote paste
  • Orange-pineapple juice
  • Garlic
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Lime juice
  • Serrano pepper
  • Onion
  • Mexican Oregano
  • Salt

Ingredients


Blended…very vibrant color



First Lamb Leg


All nice and marinated for 24 hours


In the smoker and temp being monitored...


Patience is a virtue…I forget the total cook time but it was around 2+ hours.


Basted with the bbq sauce (with some butter added) during last 10*


Let it rest for about 30 -45 minutes. Slice and combine with cole slaw wrapped up in a freshly made guajillo tortilla (home made if possible.)

All wrapped up and ready to eat.

Yep...first time.

Don't get me wrong I've had a lot of lamb but never cooked it myself. I knew what could go with the lamb to compliment it. It was just a matter of creating the dish in it's entirety.

And thank you!

Looks good! Never smoked lamb myself either, but will definitely try this. Can I ask what temp you smoked at and what the internal temp was when you pulled it off the cooker?

Smoked at 325* and internal was set for 145* but I didn't remove right away as I was in the middle of a game with my daughter. So, probably 150* internal and tented with foil for about 30-45 min.
