Pulled Lamb Shoulder with Q-View!

Hey all,

Been a while but finally the sunshine has come out and the smoking season has kicked off. For today's menu we have a 2.5kg (which is a 5.5 pound) bone in lamb shoulder. We're mad for our lamb here in Australia so it was always going into the smoker as soon as I could manage some time off!

After trimming off the harder fat cap to a good sized layer I hit it with:


Dried rosemary

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder


Kosher Salt

Black Pepper

Tiny amount of brown sugar and into the fridge for 24 hours. No injecting here.

Decided for a low and slow on this one so brought the pit up to 225. Uncovered for 3 hours, foiled for 3 hours then rested for 1. The result? Melt in your mouth tender with a perfect subtle smoke profile. I used a combination of apple and mesquite.

Enough talk tho, time for some Q view!

3 hours in and ready to be foiled

First look after resting for an hour. I cooked it until 197. I was aiming for 200 but had some time constraints with guests. 

Served them with some warm pita bread, chimichurri dip, some tzatziki and some peppery rocket and onion with balsamic for some acidity. Not a scrap of leftovers and I had to roll my guests out the door they over ate so much. Will definitely be doing this one again. Cheers!

That looks delicious!

I've never had pulled lamb before!

A point worthy smoke for sure!
