Hopefully this entry will encourage some more btrethren to be "Lamb Virgins No More"?

Here's how to do it hot and fast, give it plenty of smoke and have a delicious dinner!

This lamb came from my parants hobby farm, so I was really keen to do it justice!

First, I traditionally prepped this with slivers of garlic and fresh rosemary. Then the lamb was seasoned with black pepper and marinated in white wine.

(Frances was making an apple pie at the same time... not part of the recipe)

I then rubbed the lamb with this new rub I got from Hong Kong... which was actually imported from South Africa. It was really fragrant.

Then into the smoker using lump and oak at 300F

This is about 2hrs in, and by that stage I was running at 325-350F

Cooked to an internal of 140F. Went through lots of oak too, but with a small hot fire it burned clean as a whistle...

The leg was then properly rested for 2 hours in foil, towel and cooler

Ready for carving:

This might look a bit rare for some people, but trust me, this is about how I like it. Don't be to concerned about seeing it this pink. Rare lamb is supposed to look this pink. If you're worried about this colour, just go up to 155F internal, and this will give you a nice balance that should pleasse most people. What is important to note is the EVENNESS of the colour, meaning it's well rested and well cooked. There's no part of the lamb that is raw.

We had this with pumkin, potatoes, beans with mustard viniagrette... and char grilled zucchini!

No complaints from the family!

Thanks for looking!

And... don't tell me you "must try that sometime"... Just go out and DO IT!:cool: You won't regret it!

Cheers!

Man that looks really good!!!
I have never had lamb before. Shoot the only lamb I have ever seen was at the Fair when the 4H kids have the livestock show.
After seeing this post I will look at the little butcher/farmers market.

I notice the TOP TWO vote getters in the current throwdown are both leg of lamb dishes.


And what Bill said. For those who haven't yet but are thinking about. Get off your duffs and do it! It's a no brainer. :thumb::thumb:
