Smoked roast leg of lamb

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi Folks,
I gave the WSM a 5 hour run to try out the recommended lighting method and all went well.  The hard part was to walk away and have a beer; it was only 8 o'clock am!  But I did as recommended; I reckon it had to be opening time somewhere in the world.
The leg was over 3 kg (6 lb), but not too big and I had it in a solid brine all night, dried it off, applied olive oil ,black pepper, cayenne ,and about a dozen garlic cloves cut into pockets.  A bit to much garlic.

Look away if you don't like your lamb well done.

Excuse the delux table.

I see pics of many lamb roasts pretty rare, but we like our lamb well done.

Your lamb looks great to me. If you like it that way then you smoke it that way. But it looks fine to me.

We eat our lamb on the pink side as well but what ever you prefer is what you should do. It's been a long time since I have made lamb. I might have to do some for the holidays.

I like my meats well done and the wife like hers rare so I am going to ry my first leg this week and hope for the best. I will go for something close to Diesltojo on the first try and work from there with more experience. Looks like its good though.
