Barbeque Leg of Lamb with Garlic Cloves and Rosemary

Simply the best way to Barbeque Lamb

Method

1. De-bone the Leg of Lamb. This is easily done with a small (very sharp) knife - be careful not to cut yourself while doing the de-boning. This is a surprisingly easy thing to do I have disciovered.

2. Cut deep slits in the leg and push a clove of garlic deep into the meat.

3. Basting in olive oil making sure that the entire joint is well covered in the oil.

4. Place a sprig of Rosemary into each of the grooves as well. Leave the stalk of the Rosemary sticking out of the meat.

Cooking
Having prepared the fire in a Webber Barbeque (also called a Kettle Barbeque or Braai in the USA and South Africa) cook using the indirect method for approximately 1 hour depending on how big the joint is and how you like your lamb cooked. If you prefer well cooked meat you should cook it for up to 1 and a half hours.

Ingredients

Rosemary (Fresh) Several Sprigs
Olive Oli 5 To 8 Tblsp
Fresh Garlic Several Cloves
Leg Of Lamb (deboned) 1 Large

Hints 'n' Tips
