Lamb shoulder

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
We love us some lamb! In terms of pulled meat its my favourite.. i absolutely love the buttery gaminess of lamb

Grabbed a 5lb shoulder for $4/lb and put some tassy oak smoke onto her

Didnt feel like firing up the big drum so just decided to go indirect setup with briqs on the kettle bbq

Unwrapped the whole cook.. sittin about 173

I recently did a pulled lamb shoulder.  I loved it!  I have another sitting in the freezer that I hope to pull in a week or two.  That looks amazing!

I love the lamb too, but don't get it often enough due to picky family.

Great looking lamb,more people should give it a try. And you provided a great example of how to cook lamb. We raise sheep and I have 6 ready to go for processing now and several more over the next few months.
Again great job.

Thankyou my friend! Wow thats awesome! Lamb is such a beautiful meat.. in Australia its just as common as beef or pork, its a staple of our diet and every single butcher & supermarket stock it.. lots of the time its actually cheaper than beef. I cant wait to see some of the lamb cooks you do!

A little more info.. i rubbed with EVOO and just some mixed herbs like thyme and oregano and some SPOG

smoked unwrapped till 199 it was probing soft so let it rest in foil for an hour

I never make a finishing sauce for lamb as the fat has so much flavor and it keeps the meat incredibly juicy by itself, its different to beef and pork fat

Looks great! I have never done one but have thought about it. Might have to try it after seeing that beaut!

I keep coming back to this thread and drooling.
Been too long since I had lamb so I'm gonna follow your lead.
My local Costco sells nice cuts of Lamb, next weekend I'm buying me a shoulder.

Just...wow. This is one of my next smokes.

This looks awesome and I'm definitely going to do one. Looks pretty much the same process as a pork butt. I noticed you said you didn't wrap. I usually wrap pork butts at 165 IT then go until 200 IT. Is there a reason not to wrap? Would it matter if I did wrap at 165 IT? Just curious your thoughts. Thank you.

No reason not to wrap at all.. i usually do wrap lamb shoulder but this time was just more testing unwrapped.. cook it exactly the same as a pork butt and you cant go wrong icon14.gif
