OK, made both a 6lb leg of lamb, and a 5 lb veal roast for those who didn't like lamb.
Lamb was coated in salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary, thyme, mint, and olive oil. Put some of the paste in some incisions, and coated the outside.
The veal roast got coated with the same seasonings.
Both were put in the egg being cooked indirect the lamb until 140 the veal till 145.
Mmmmm good. The Mrs made a Dijon mustard sauce from the joy of cooking to go with the veal, but it also went well on sauteed asparagus.asparagus

Got to use the new maverick, and my old Weber remote thermometer (actually made by scientific American) with new remote probe.

    The lamb went about 2 hours with rest, unfortunately finished about 15 minutes before the veal so it tented longer.

    That leg looks great.

    I did lamb kabobs (blurry IPhone pic) . Cooked them at about 400 for just a few minutes. Served them with tzatziki sauce, lettuce, tomato, and fresh pita on the side. Marinated in an Ina Garten mix my wife found. They were great.

    I love lamb all different ways. I haven't done a whole leg yet on the Egg. I will after seeing yours.
