    Let me qualify this by saying I have never been a fan of lamb. I like it when mixed with beef and turned into a gyro but have never liked it any other way. That all changed this weekend. Wifey asked me to throw a lamb on with the brisket and meatloaf this weekend so after scouring many threads in this forum I came up with a rub. My rub consisted of rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, sea salt, and fresh ground pepper. I then stuffed the leg with cloves of garlic. It then went on the smoker using hickory chunks and apple chips until it hit an internal temp of 140*.

    I am now a fan of lamb. I even surprised myself by slicing off a second piece without thinking about it. Thanks for the inspiration folks! [​IMG]

  4. That lamb looks great! I love lamb and smoke it, grill it etc frequently. Congratulations on discovering a new dish that you enjoy. My motto has always been "I'll try any dish Twice" if I didn't like it the first time it might have been poorly prepared.

    Nice looking Lamb.[​IMG]

    I have made 4 and the first 3 Carol thought it was beef and loved it. The last one she must have seen the label and wouldn't eat it after finding out it was lamb.[​IMG]

    Man, that's some great looking lamb! Congratulations on a job well done! Mrs Rivet won't let me smoke the ones in our freezer 'cause she says they're hers and she wants them the usual way~ roasted in the oven [​IMG]

    The 2 fat kids that live in my house love lamb any way I grill it, smoke it, or no there's no other way. So solar that is some really good looking lamb you have there [​IMG]for not thinking you wouldn't like it. You said last night that you put a whole head of garlic in it so I had second thoughts but it looks really.
    Hey Rivet you should pull a Ron on your wife and tell hers it's beef.
