    Well. . . . .
    This Lamb Forum hasn't had a post for quite a while so I decided I would share my latest effort.

    Rummaged around the freezer and found some ground Lamb from a recent butchering. Prepared it the same way I do beef burger, when making meatloaf: A couple eggs, crushed garlic, one small diced onion, salt, pepper, a little dry rub mix, A1, and what ever is available at the time. I even added one finely diced seeded & deveined Jalapeno pepper. Crushed in some saltine crackers and mixed that puppy really good, by hand.

    Placed it on a typical cooking pan with holes in it. Patted it into a domed loaf. Sprinkled it with more rub, then spritzed it with apple juice/cranberry mix.

    Smoker was to temp and ready to roll so plopped it in the GOSM vertical and set the probes.

    Used Apple and Cherry wood chunks. Smoked at 250F until internal reached 140F, then stopped the smoke. Spritzed more apple/cranberry mix, from time to time. Pulled the plug when internal reached 160F.

    Turned out very well. My first attempt and I was fully satisfied with the result.

    Thanks everyone. Pictures aren't the best, but better than nothing.

    The Jalapeno's really added a nice little zip. Veins and seeds were out so it wasn't hot, just very tasty !!
