Lamb how I love thee.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Bought a ½ leg of lamb (bone in) for my first go at smoking one. 

 

Removed the bone, brushed with Olive Oil then seasoned it with Rosemary, Fresh Garlic, Thyme, S&P. Finished with a hasty tie job. (Rain was forecast to move in)

 

 

Smoked it for 2:15 on my electric Brinkmann Smoke 'n' Grill with Cherry chunks and 1 pc. of Mesquite.

Here's the results:

 

 

Also made my own Tzatziki Sauce to have with it: 

2 c Plain Greek Yogurt
¼ Medium Red Onion (finely minced)

¼ c finely minced Cucumber

1 clove fresh garlic (finely minced)

1T Lemon Juice

1T Red Wine Vinegar

2T Dried Dill Weed
S&P 

Pulled the lamb at 145. Wrapped it in foil and a bath towel to rest while insulated, for an hour. Came out to a perfect Medium.

Thanks, Chef JimmyJ. 

 

After tasting it, I can't understand how anyone could hate it. But I hear ya'. Too many people expect it to be gamey which lamb most certainly isn't. 

 

Then there's the whole "but it's such a cute animal" crowd. :)

That's ok, though. More lamb for me.

I think that is due to the lamb we use in the US. The lamb in Europe is way better. My wife doesn't like lamb here but loves it in Italy.
