Dad wanted lamb - and lamb he got!
Boneless Leg of Lamb Roast :biggrin:

I cut the net off the roast then splayed it out and cut into 4 managable pieces. The whole roast was around 5 or 6lbs. Two of those pieces fed 5 adults, the other two are for Dad and i - leftovers! Cold Lamb sandwich with cucumber is great!

Rubbed with some good chit, also forgot to show, 4 cloves of minced garlic, sea salt, and juice of one lemon.

About 10-15 min. resting stage after searing for about 5 minutes on each side.

Ready - temp is down to around 315 while meat is resting.

Placed meat on indirect heat side and cooked until 134 internal temp. Oh, also added a few small branch sticks of apple wood on the lump mesquite charcoal.

Rested for about 15 min. was 138 when carved, (med-rare is 135-140 for lamb). This was my first try at leg of lamb. I loved it. But next time i think i will cook at 280-290 until 135. It was very tender, but i could tell, it could have handled a little more time with a little less heat - more low and more slow... just a tad. :wink:

Made a nice Moroccan Yogurt Sauce - 1 cup plain yogurt, 1/4 cup fresh mint - minced, Lemon zest from 2 lemons (should use "preserved lemon", but it is really hard to find), 1 cup cucumber - peeled seeded and coarse grated, (couple of drops of sweetner since i didn't have the preserved lemon), very refreshing, excellent for lamb! :eusa_clap

It would at that bro :wink: .... it was extremely mild, not even as strong as lamb chops. In fact you could barely tell it was lamb at all. :smile:

I guary-dam tee you that between the good chit he put on there, the smoke, then that fine sauce, even if you are not a big lamb fan you would love that. Like gyro meat, only "roastier" (new word, no charge for that).

[Do you think with these mad props I'm giving him he'll send me some?!]

Great pictures. I for one don't care for lamb. Something very wrong when you have to serve mint sauce with meat.But alot of people love it. Maybe Ill give it another try NOT!

Well Chuck, it dosn't "have" to be served with mint :roll: - they compliment each other. Like lemon on fish - get it? ... but to each his own man.

That lamb does look good. I have about three lambs that are the size to butcher. I plan to sell two and butcher one. It looks like I need to make an appointment with the local locker.

This post went under my radar..........I AM a lamb fan and that there lamb is farktastic looking and I bet it tasted even better. That yogurt based sauce is also really good. I've made one similar to that before and the wife and I could not stop eating it just by itself.
Damn, that looks good!! Thanks for sharing.
