LOL cooking time?

I've got a bone-in leg of lamb that's been marinating 3 days. The forum recipes all seem to be for boneless, and a search produced nothing for words "lamb" (how can this be?). Anyone familiar with T and time for LOL? I planned on doing it with inverted plate sitter and second grill on top of that. Other books suggest something like 350 F for 2-3 hers to 135 internal.

    You got it! (Though I prefer 250º, 30 mins. per pound. Use apple or cherry wood for flavor.)

    Frozen Chosen,
    Next time. Boning a leg of lamb ain't that hard, if you've got a good boning knife. Cut the meat where it's thinnest, all the way to the bone. Then just run the tip of your knife along the bone, first on one side of the bone, then on the other, till you can lift the bone to make the final cuts. While you're there, you may want to cut partway through the thicker section of meat so you can butterfly it and grill it "flat".

  • BlueSmoke,[p] I often do butterfly'd legs, but sometimes the presentation of a bone-in is called for. Plus, I find that while butterflied leg cooks more evenly, it often overcooks. The temps and time you mentioned seem more suitable to a boned leg. I went with 330F for about 2.5 hrs on a 5-6# leg to 145F internal; perfect m-rare throughout. I also prefer no smoke added to lamb; just to delicate a flavor to mess up that way.
