    I have a lamb shoulder in the freezer and was planning on doing that sometime here soon. Is the pulled lamb the preferred method for making it or are there other methods?  I'm a total noob when it comes to lamb but I'm excited to try it.

    Pulled is my preference.. lamb shoulder is similar to a pork butt in that it contains alot of connective tissue that needs to be broken down for it to be not chewy or tough, you could braise it and make a lovely stew or pulled lamb pie

    Itll be great im sure Thumbs Up basically just pull it off to rest when a probe slides in smooth as butter and you will be golden!

    So I gave it a shot Sunday and did not get it to the temp I wanted and did not get it to the desired tenderness. It did not turn out well.  No biggie though, they can't all be winners.

    It happens, I pulled it when it was at 190.  It had been on since 11:30 a.m. and I pulled it around 8:30 p.m.  We were getting too hungry.  It still made good gyros but overall I was not satisfied with the finished product.
