It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • Butterfly the leg removing the bone.  Open up the butterflied leg and drizzle with olive oil add minced garlic, chopped fresh parsley, salt and pepper to your liking.  Roll up and tie with butcher twine.  Cook indirect at 300 until internal temp reaches 140 for medium rare which I like or go to 150-160.  Let rest 10-15 minutes and slice.  If you use good lamb it will be delicious.  The Greeks, Italians and Arabs do not use mint jelly because it does not belong anywhere near that delicious meat.  If you use mint jelly you are not drinking enough alcohol.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    I know you said bone in, but if you can de-bone it, The Naked Whiz has a  pretty good recipe on his website for a stuffed one.

    I like Sam's recipe, that's pretty much what I do except you have to add fresh rosemary in addition to what he listed.  I like to sear the bejesus out of it too...there's something special about crispy burnt lamb flesh.  I cook it medium rare.

    I like to butterfly them and fill them with mint jelly and mint. Roulade and baste with mint jelly.

    I'll throw some mint in my yogurt/horseradish/garlic sauce.  Sometimes I use sour cream instead of yogurt.  Basically this is a horseradish delivery system (HDS).  I love horseradish.
