Leg of Lamb Smoked

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I couldn't get the search function to work (weird,) so I decided to just post my question.

I'm planning on smoking a whole bone in leg of lamb around the fourth of July and I was wondering if I manage to keep my smoker around 250 how much time per pound should I leave the leg in for? I am trying to get it to rare/medium rare.

I have only done bonless legs. Can't give you a time but I pull mine out at 130' for rare. Not a long smoke as I recall.

Good luck.

130 for rare? That sounds good. I think I'll try and pull mine out around 140 and hit medium rare/rare in the middle. Then let it rest. I found a site on google that is saying thirty minutes per pound. That should give me a good starting point.

I will also try to get some pictures for all of you.

Ive smoke some lamb but not a whole leg. But I'll tell you one thing if RON says it you can take it to the smoker and IT WILL BE GOOD. He helped me with a prime rib smoke and it was spot on and tasted really great. so Go For It

Don't forget, if you take it to 140', after resting it will be hotter approaching med 145' - 150'. Also, if you put a drip pan under it with some beef aujus and thinly sliced onions you can always reheat for a minute to get the pink out if need be and retain the moisture. Once over cooked it is too late.

Thanks mballi.

I'm assuming you entered leg of lamb just like that? If so then the fact that a word is 3 letters or under it won't search. Put it in parenthesis "leg of lamb" and you will get hits.
Though with a little help from Ron you're sure to have a successful smoke.

Ok so, if I wanted to get it to rare I should pull it out at around 130 and let it rest for 30-45 minutes? Is that what you are saying Ron?

Yes, you can always reheat longer if it's too rare after slicing, but you can't reverse it.

Better safe than sorry.
