    So I never really had a chance to celebrate New Years because I was working all weekend long. I was browsing through the local meat dept and came acorss this at a great price.

    I rubbed it down with EVOO and put some CBB, rosemary, and italian seasonings on it.

    Jim gave me the idea to add some lump charcoal to the chip pan. It worked great! I used apple wood in the GOSM.

    Not too pleasant outside!

    I love it when the wife is in the mood for some ABT's! I also made some of those cherry pepper poppers but this time wrapped them in some brats.

    ABT's were perfect!!!

    I waited for the temp to come up on the lamb to 150 degrees.

    And finally plated...

    This was the most tender piece of meat I have made yet...
    Thanks for checking it out!

    Let me tell ya, when the bone came out it was a big ole bone! I am still a bit curious as to why they called it semi-boneless... Oh well... It came out great.

    Yea I asked John how he likes to do his... He gave me some pointers...

    Beautifully smoked lamb, Tony! I gotta share these with Mrs Rivet so I can convince her to let me smoke one...you know the story [​IMG] How'd the erbs and seasonings work out for you in the smoker? Looked mighty tasty.

    The herbs were great!!! Tell her that Mrs. BigTrain doesnt like too much smoke and I used apple and she was very happy... Not too much smoke at all.

    Great job all around.
    I was so close to picking up a leg of lamb about a week ago but was really uncertain about properly cooking it, thanks for the inspiration.
    Also LOVED the idea of wrapping brats around the pepper shooters, love brats in the smoker so next time I do them I'm wrapping them in bratwurst.
    Thanks for all the inspiration and awesome job!

    I have to go find my digital camera... I have been using my camcorder and it doesn't have a flash on it so it takes away from some of the detail... Im not happy with the pics...

    But very happy with the lamb...

    Thanks everyone!

    So what would you estimate is the total time of smoke for this leg of lamb? And I understand you pulled it at 150*?

    I'm not a big lamb guy but my wife loves it. Points are always good, regardless of where you get them.
