    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!!!

    I keep the wsm at 225 -230. Took about 4 or 5hours. Internal I went to 145 wrap it for about 1/2 hour then cut into it. I used hickery 3 or 4 fist size chunks. Don't let it go past 150 I feel it gets dryer as it stays long temp wise. 145 is about meduim rare,so if you let it sit for 1/2 it will raise a couple of degrees.
    No pics I made it last year and the year before. Last year it was a little dryer than the year before. Thats why I say don't let it go longer (Degrees wise). The first year I didn't have to make a gravy because it was so moist. O I got the Legs of lamb from Costco.
    Hope that this helps

    I agree. I love lamb steaks on the grill and was lucky enough to find some yesterday in my small city (usually have to go to Raleigh, NC to find a Trader Joe's).
    Yesterday I happened upon a Middle East Market here in Greenville run by a fellow from Palestine and he cut me two halal steaks from the leg.
    They are now marinating in evoo, redwine vinegar, garlic, red wine, S&P,and chopped fresh oregano.
    Looking forward to tonight and a nice glass of zinfandel with the steaks.

    Lamb steaks were very good last night. Served them with a new sauce I found on the net.
    1 TSP sherry vinegar
    1 TSP honey
    1 TSP dried mint
    1/2 cup evoo
    Mixed all and spooned over the steaks after they rested for about 6 minutes. Yummy.

    I have never cooked lamb in my life, actually have only had it a few times as kabobs. My Aunt loves Lamb and got me a roast to cook for Easter So looks like I'm firing up the 14" WSM in the morning
