Hello all,

Hope everyone is having a good Sunday. Love this forum. I am grilling a leg of lamb this afternoon. Any suggestions on what to use for wood chips or chunks? Have had my egg since June and use it about three times a week at a min...

Thanks for any help.

    I have heard that the bone in is much better. I am using Mario Batali's recipe and he calls for bone in. When I went to the butcher this afternoon he cut the bone out unfortunately. Doing a 4 hour marinade.

  • Olive wood is the bomb for roast lamb.

    Apple has been mentioned. I like pecan and guava also. Sometimes I will use rosemary twigs from my plant either by itself or mixed with the above mentioned.

  • You should be able to get it at a BBQ specialty store or Bass Pro. Stephen Raichlen packages it with the rest of his product line.
