G'Day Bruces!:becky:

Sorry about the delay in getting this post up. I was pretty upset about what's going to be the entry photo for the "Lamb" TD... Full disclosure being that I was absolutely sh!tfaced when I took the plating pics. I hadn't planned to be, but during the day I had a few glasses of wine (as you will see) and right at the end I had a neighbor pour me two serious glasses of scotch and I'm not as able to absorb all that any more now I'm less than 170#. :icon_blush:

I was wanting to do it all over again, but never got the chance so I have to go with this one.:tsk:

Well, in the beginning everything was fine. I had it all together with the spices, onions, and some very nice EVOO!

And marinaded the lamb shoulder in this for 3 days!

On it went with some Banksia wood for smoke!

Cuppla nice shots here after it was on at 300F for about 3 hours.

I found this old bottle of wine I'd had for a very long time. I thought it would be terrible but needed it for the next step. As a matter of fact, it was outstanding :shock: and I started sipping away at this.

From here it went into the cabinet smoker for a few hours until it was about 200ish.

Then it rested in a cooler for a few hours till dinner. Made the salads and all the other things... specifically a pumpkin mash which I had a lot of pics of as well.... But this is when I started to go off the rails with the bottle of wine and those Scotches!:crazy:

Sooooo... much later... absolutely HAMMERED.. I pulled the Lamb.

And this was the salad plate:

You can see where I was trying to go with this. Have a nice base of pumpkin puree, a super pretty salad and a tantalizing tower of pulled lamb on the top for your eyes to feast on...

I got 2 very ordinary shots...

But the leftovers looked pretty good.

And how was it?

Well, I'm told it was absolutely awesome.... but my memory is a little hazy.:sorry:

I had some for dinner the next night and it was pretty good!

Thanks for looking... I did write down the recipe if you want it... It is certainly worth doing again but without the friendly neighborly assistance next time.

Cheers!

Looks great! I'm not sure I could have plated half that well if I were hammered. I would take that recipe!

If that's how you cook "nailed" then id love to see what you can do sober!.Or is it like the Drunken Master movies where you cook better under the influence :-D

As a fellow Melbonite we should catch up for a feed and a few beers and share the BBQ love...

I hope you had much more than just that one bottle of wine to get hammered...

But the grub looks pretty tasty.

Here you go!

As I wrote it down... I don't mess to much with quantities. You pretty much make it up and balance it to your own preferences.

I cooked a lot yesterday. Only Two Beers and two bourbon. I awakened with a headache. I’m out of “drinking shape”.

Your food looks grand.

We'd be lying if we didn't admit to falling over the edge occasionally.
