    Never done mutton, but being an Armenian we are a lot of lamb, typically boneless , Our basic recipe , a good wine, rosemary time garlic and onion, marinate overnight..we would do ours on a rotisserie till 160 and slice. I imagine mutton could be taken longer wrap at 160 and take it to pull...don't know, bout don't see why it wouldn't...personally I would shy away from smoke as the meat is pretty strong on its own
