Oh my gosh Ross... that's the best looking meal I've seen in a long time. I bet the shanks were fall off the bone tender. Once again, I wish I were your neighbor. :becky:
Looks fantastic!

Lamb is my favorite meat. Can't get no better than a=the little funkiness in it! Gamier the better! Great looking cook, gotta love the dutch oven.

That is another classic down here, great job Ross.
BTW as a matter of interest, that coldnt be sold as lamb here.
It's too old, and would be hogget under our classification system.
I hate it because for some reason the ignorant unwashed have turned their nose up at hogget so it is hard to find.
It is gamier and stronger, and I much prefer it to lamb for many dishes and I just can't source any.
I think you buggers are snaffling it all!:mmph::laugh:

Is that meat from an older animal? I read that American lamb has just been bred a lot bigger than Australian for NZ lamb but maybe I'm wrong. I know the American vs. imported lamb I've seen puts the American lamb being way biger in size.

And I agree, I'd give my left pinky toe to be able to get old sheep or mutton here in Alabama. That gaminess is what I love about that meat.

Bit OT I know,
Leg of two tooth mutton whatever you call it.
Cut out the leg gland,the yellow hard lump.
Bury in dirt next to a campfire wrapped in alfoil.
Go fishing for 8 hours and dinner is ready.

USA class "lamb" to a far older age and commonly grain feed, which we won't do.

Btw, we have the worlds premium eating and wool sheepies so keep an eye out for it!
Get Ross to cook it for ya!:clap2:

I gotcha man, guess that is where all that extra fat comes in at is in the grain finishing instead of full time grass. And no doubt, Mr. Ross knows how to do it!

I was reading , quite some time ago so dunno if it has changed, that the lamb producers in the USA decided to do this because it reduces the lambiness/ game smell and taste.
I think that was daft, Aussie and NZ lamb sells at high prices and is winning mamy fans.
Our counties don't grain feed because we feel cheated of the intense flavour we love.
Marketing execs are dopes, often as not.

That there is some Great Looking Grub.

Lamb is one thing I have not tried to cook yet.
Need to "get off my duff" now :redface:

These kinda cooks are what make you a BBQ God!!

Thanks for the inspiration.

Nail. On. The. Head. That is exactly what happened here in America and yes, it was the stupidest thing they could've done. They did the exact opposite with American pork and have cut out almost all the fat so it's the new lean "chicken" alternative in most products. Some of the heritage breeds with more fat are making a come back though, thank God and people have learned to love fat again. Beef has been watered down to be more mild too.

Most Americans aren't fond of full flavor meats. Well, except us boys here on the forum I guess and a select few others. :grin:
