"Best lamb I ever had." -- Wife

I really like boneless leg of lamb, but I've never been very successful in making it on a barbecue. It always comes out dry and tough. So even after a year of Egging, I finally tried it for the first time.[p]Bottom line: major success. I followed the recipe for "balsamic garlic rosemary" lamb in the BGE index, word for word, and it was amazingly tender, juicy, and flavorful. [12 minutes on each side at 400; remove at 130 internal and let it set for 10 minutes before carving.] I used several oak wood chunks on the fire, which added a great Smoky taste without being overwhelming or bitter.[p]Here were the keys, I think: (1) the high heat/short time technique; (2) the remote probe meat thermometer, which told me to take it off at 130 degrees (lower than many recipes call for); and (3) letting it set for 10 minutes before carving, which caused it to continue cooking a little bit before carving.[p]This would be a great recipe for a crowd -- just make three of these and slice them up!
