Short and to the point. Never like Lamb!!! Made this paste smoked it NOTHING CAME OUT BETTER NOTHING!!!!!
Here is the Paste, for a 6 to 9 pound leg of lamb:
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Grated rind of 2 lemons
1/2 cup lemon juice
3-inch sprig of fresh mint or 2 tablespoons mint jelly(I us the fresh mint)
3 teaspoons combined minced fresh herbs (thyme, tarragon, rosemary, marjoram )
3 tablespoons brown sugar (reduce to 2 tablespoons if mint jelly is used )
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Saute the garlic and onion 2 minutes in the olive oil.
Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 3 minutes.
Brush the lamb on all sides with this sauce and put in frige over night cover with saran wrap.
Next day let meat sit a while to come close to room temp(1/2 an hour or so set up WSM and heat up)put more past on again and cook away.
Hope it comes out as good as mine did if not better!!!
