Leg of Lamb

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey all, I picked up a boneless leg of lamb this morning when I went to Sam's Club and although I have smoked them before with a rub of Rosemary, Garlic and Pepper, I don't have a rub that I can call a "Lamb Rub." Anyone have any suggestions as to a good recipe for a lamb rub that will add flavor to the lamb? I keep looking and all I find are lamb with Tatziki Sauce or Curry Mayonnaise. Some help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.....usa.gif

I would like a more middle eastern dry rub. I have never used wet on anything that I have put in the smoker so I wouldn't know the first thing about using wet....

This is great! Thanks for posting. An old friend is visiting this week, and we're going to do a day of smoking, with leg and rack of lamb in the mix. Will be trying this rub on the leg.
