    Well did our first ever leg of lamb smoke. I boned it, first for this also. Marinated if for 2 days (1st mistake) in EVOO, S&P, kufta spice (middle eastern spice), rosemary and a bunch of garlic.
    Smoker at 225 (2nd mistake) and it cooked for 3 hrs.
    In the mean time did up some ABT's. No after pics, sorry.

    LOL ready to go in the smoker.

    Finished and out of the smoker. Wrapped it in foil and rolled it up in a big blanket. Didn't have a cooler available so just put it on the counter.

    Sliced and ready to go. Came out a little short of medium and real juicy.

    Next time I am only going to use marinade for over night. Meat seemed a little soft.
    I will also cook it a a higher temp, maybe 250.
    Friends that came for dinner are not big lamb fans but said I could make that for them anytime so I guess it wasn't too bad.

    Well thanks for looking and any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Looks great, if they really don't like lamb, and said they'd eat it again, then you did something right [​IMG]

    looks really good to me. I haven't tried cooking lamb, can't say I have ate a lot of it. but for some reason, I am thinking this weekend, I will be smoking some. I see several recipes for marinates but no one mentions what flavor smoke.

    Any suggestions would be apreciated.

    Thanks in advance
