Lamb, Leg, Boneless, Easter'09, Richard Fl


INGREDIENTS:
1 4 Lbs Leg of Lamb, Boneless
Marinade:
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




Procedure:
Marinade:
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!
Procedure:
1 Defrosted the frozen leg of lamb in the spa @101F 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 62F. Placed in 101F spa for an hour and the temp rose to 76F.
5 Got small BGE set up direct and brought temperature to 450F. Placed the leg of lamb onto the grate and rotated by thirds for a total of 10 minutes. Temp got to 80F..





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 275F.







20 minutes later temperature was 325F and the meat temperature was 94F. Temperature of dome rose to 350F and stabilized. 1 hour into total cooking time dome was 350F and the internal meat temperature was 110F. When it reached 142F internal for meat, pulled from the BGE. Total cooking time was 1 hour and 50 minutes. (Note to self- will pull at 137F or so next time). Temperature rose 5 degrees while resting 25 minutes.





7 Used rosemary sticks for smoke.
8 Sides included potato wedges, whole white mushrooms and baby carrots grilled 45 minutes with porcini EVOO in oven and green beans ands leeks baked for an hour 350 oven, (Brought by guests).
9 Dessert: Charlotte Russe Cake, brought by guests.
