Default Deboning a leg of lamb (with pics)

Picked up 3 unbutchered legs of lamb this morning. I de-boned them and cubed them up for kabobs. Going to grill them tomorrow and bring them in for a dept. lunch. Had my girlfriend snap some pics of the process:

Wow! Widescreen version with no captions!
Looks like a lot of work, but sure does look good!
Where are the Kabobs?
Wanna share the marinade recipe?

Sure, however I can't promise the proportions because I don't know them myself (I'm bad with writing recording measurements). I bought everything the night before, so what I do know I'll add or try to estimate:

Juice of 9 lemons (really squeezed the crap out of them, didn't let any juice go to waste).
32 ounces of regular olive oil

There herbs were all fresh, not dry. The containers were those plastic snap see through ones in the supermarket. Not quite sure how much is in there, but it's not that much! Rip off!!!

3 cloves of garlic
2 bunches of parsley
2 containers of mint
2 containers of Rosemary
2 containers of Oregano
2 containers of Thyme
1 container or Sage
ground fresh pepper in, by sight
added salt to the above, also by sight

Never tried the above before (have done similar, but not the exact above), I'll report back with results later.

I've done it before with olive wood. I placed an order with a local wood guy and he gave me some samples of his olive. Came out great, I used salt pepper and oregano. I did however give it an initial sear over direct heat then finished it indirect around 350-400.

OK, I may be missing something cause I was having trouble scrolling around on that widescreen stuff. But I have a question.
Why go through all that de-boning stuff if you are going to end up with kebob cubes? Why not just whack the meat off the bones, cube it up and save the bones for another use?

Not trying to be critical, just trying to understand

We do lamb frequently. I like to do a un-frenched rack. Personal favorite is Pecan wood, or mix of pecan and oak. Same for most lamb.
For seasoning, I use a basic salt, black pepper, garlic and rosemary blend on a rack, which cooks quick.
For breast of lamb, or shoulder cuts, I use same rub I do on pork.

Never did it before, good enough reason for me :). I did also want to efficiently separate the meat from the bones in order to segregate for kabobs and stew.

Jeremiah, sounds like a perfectly good reason to me too. Hope you had fun. Always nice honing new skills.
That marinade with all the fresh herbs looks very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
