1 4 Lbs Leg of Lamb, Boneless
1 cup Italian Salad Dressing
4-6 Cloves Garlic, Whole
1/3 cup Sweet or Red Onion, Diced
1/3 cup Rosemary, Fresh Leaves
1 Tbs Black Pepper, Fresh Ground
1 pinch Sea Salt
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 Lemon, Juice From
Fresh Mint leaves, ( Optional )
1/4 cup Soy Sauce, ( Optional )
Many Slivers Garlic, Fresh
1 Place all in blender and puree. Place meat in ziploc bag and marinate for 4-6 hours, overnight is OK but be careful after 12 hours as the lemon juice has a tendency to "COOK" the meat. In a pinch, ITALIAN Salad Dressing with garlic and rosemary works.
2 This works well for lamb kabobs, legs, rack or shoulders and shanks.
3 Soy sauce may be added for optional flavor.,
4 If doing shanks, like to cut into 1 1/2-2 inch pieces as this tends to reduce the cooking time.
5 Save the rosemary twigs for smoke!
1 Defrosted the frozen leg of lamb in the spa @101°F for 1 1/2 hours.
2 Removed from packaging after defrosted and rinsed. Left in net meshing and inserted many slivers of garlic.
3 Placed in gallon Ziploc bag with marinade in the frig overnight or for 3-4 hours.
4 Took out of frig and placed on counter for an hour. Temp rose to 62°F. Placed in 101°F spa for an hour and the temp rose to 76°F.
5 Got small BGE set up direct and brought temperature to 450°F. Placed the leg of lamb onto the grate and rotated by thirds for a total of 10 minutes. Temp got to 80°F..
6 Took leg off and set up for indirect with drip pan, 1/3 water, under grate on copper elbows on top of plate setter. Temperature dropped to 275°F.
20 minutes later temperature was 325°F and the meat temperature was 94°F. Temperature of dome rose to 350°F and stabilized. 1 hour into total cooking time dome was 350°F and the internal meat temperature was 110°F. When it reached 142°F internal for meat, pulled from the BGE. Total cooking time was 1 hour and 50 minutes. (Note to self- will pull at 137°F or so next time). Temperature rose 5 degrees while resting 25 minutes.
