Rocked the boneless leg o lamb (with Q-view)

  1. So I smoked my first boneless leg of lamb last night.  I took some tips from a few of the posts on here and this is what happened. 

    First I stuffed it with onions, garlic (whole cloves) and rosemary.  I tied it back together and let it sit overnight. 


    Then I used a mixture of water and red wine in my water pan.  I used applewood chips.  


    I set the temp for 225 and let her go.  At 140 (only because I was also cooking up a big batch of turkey carbonara  to use up the leftover smoked and deep fried turkeys and kind of forgot about the lamb) I had hubby take it out of the smoker.  Wrapped it in foil and some towels and let it rest in a cooler for about 20-30 min.  

    This is the result:


    To me it was a perfect medium rare and oh so tasty!  


    Served it with roasted garlic smashed potatoes and creamed spinach.  A nice 2003 Cabernet Franc added the right touch.  And I whipped up a cinnamon roll bread pudding with a vanilla vodka cream sauce for dessert.  All in all a fabulous meal!

    Looks fantastic!! Nothing like smoked lamb. Cinnamon roll bread pudding is one of my favorites as well.

    Gonna do a test one before Christmas, I'm wanting to prepare one for Christmas dinner. What size and approx time did it take at that temp? Just so I can plan a little better.
    BTW, its looks perfect!

    Man you nail it! I love lamb!
     
  5. It was a 3 1/2 lb leg and it took about 3 hours.  Then resting for about 30 minutes.

    Everything looks and sounds mouth-watering.  Especially the cinnamon roll bread pudding with a vanilla vodka cream sauce for dessert.

    Well done.  Meat looks perfect to me.

    I've never had lamb, and that might just tempt me into trying it.
