Smoked Leg of Lamb

Smoked Leg of Lamb

5 1 5 1

Bone in leg of lamb is traditionally a roast, but this smoked version is moist, tasty and totally worth a try.

None of the commercial rubs seem to create the flavors I am looking for so it is one of the rare times where I make my own which is heavy on herbs, rather than ground spices.

Once cooked this can be used as a main served with vegetables, or sliced thin and served in a taco with a parsley salad (tabbouleh).

Ingredients

Lamb Herb Rub

1 tablespoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons black pepper

1 teaspoon granulated garlic (not powder)

1 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon rosemary

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon paprika

The Lamb

1 bone in leg of lamb

2 tablespoons yellow mustard

Equipment

smoker

2 chunks fruit wood

Recipe Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, garlic, thyme, rosemary, sugar and paprika. Stir until well combined.

  2. Check the lamb, remove any large pieces of fat or silver-skin to expose the meat to apply the rub to.

  3. Rub a thin layer of mustard over the lamb. Sprinkle the lamb herb rub evenly over the whole piece of meat.

  4. Place in a smoker set at 250 degrees F (121 degrees C). Use a light fruit wood such as apple or cherry. Smoke for 4 hours or until the internal temperature is 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).
