    Lamb definitely has a very different flavor from what I’m used to but it’s very good!

    Lamb is one thing on my to-do list. I haven't had it a long long time. Hopefully sometime this summer. Yours looks great.

    Point for sure.

    It definitely has a great flavor. I had it one other time and wasn’t a fan. I guess the seasoning makes the difference.

    It all looks great BKING but I am really liking your meat pic's. I haven't tried Lamb on a smoker yet, (Actually haven't even eaten any in many years).

    What was the name of the cut you used for your Gyro's and what IT did you cook it too?

    Thanks! It was a boneless leg of lamb I picked up at Costco. It was cooked medium to medium well depending on where I probed.

    A lot of people when cooking lamb cook in oven and put it in a roasting pan and then don't really like the taste. When lamb cooks it gets a gamey flavor bc it was cooked in its own fat. Cook the lamb in a roaster with a rack in it and get it off the rendered fat and lamb will be much better tasting.I haven't tried smoking a leg of lamb but I am guessing that it would be excelent bc racks in smoker would keep it off the rendered fat.

    Sorry completely forgot about the difference :oops:haha british chips (like fries but not the skinny kind)

    ...although I have had a crisp sandwich as a snack before (potato chips on white bread with butter) or even a chip butty (fries on bread and butter) yum! :p We Brits are crazy don't mind us haha
