    I'm not too big on lamb but I'd take the chickens I see in the background.[​IMG]

    Thank you for the pics! Beautiful animals you've got there.

    Some of us eat lamb.... When I was dating my wife, on her birthday I surprised her by roasting a whole, bone-in, leg of lamb. I knew it was a make-or-break dinner, and it turned out right! She loved it and ever since, on her birthday (at the very minimum) we have whole roast bone-in leg of lamb.

    Ever since then, she's been trying to convince me that memorial day, veterans day, july 4th, and of course, easter are lamb days. I willingly go along, and we eat a roast leg of lamb year round. Not as often as you all, but we love it. Welcome to the SMF and thanks again.

    I think it's just hard to find lamb prepared well up here. I've had some that is very very good, and some I couldn't eat. I grew up raising and eating beef, and so I didn't get much exposure to it. Kind of a prejudice from cattle ranchers. I have a very good friend whose wife's family are very large sheep producers here in Mt. He has made me some excellent Qd lamb on a Traeger. Good stuff. I even got my finicky daughters to try it.

    Local Shoprite has a good selection of lamb, well several different cuts but not a lot of them. The big reason I haven't done a lot of lamb is the outrageous price on it. Really expensive and almost never any deals on it here.

    g'day, dags -

    lamb isn't as available up here as it should be, but the times i've eaten it, i've very much enjoyed it. i would like to try a boned shoulder or leg on the smoker sometime, as well as kabobs with a middle-eastern marinade.

    this last weekend i did make a fatty from ground lamb - i tried to keep it on a greek "theme" and it went pretty well. here's my post on it with some pictures:
