    Lamb. So pretentious. Where does it get off not just calling it a lamb leg?

    Good luck!

    I always pause at the leg of lamb while browsing the Costco meat zone but never pull the trigger.  How are you cooking this (temp / direct or indirect / etc), and yes please post pics of the finished cook.  Bet it will turn out great!

    Looks great. Dang Afghans and their funky goat meat I ate day in and out for months on end turned me off to lamb. There is a smell that just gets to me. 

    But I believe I could sit down to a plate of that. That sauce is a nice touch.

    love this picture!  If you could've added just a bit of fill-flash (to light up the logo) it'd be perfect!
    Where do you live, @Hntnhrd ?  (and what the heck does your handle stand for?).  The sky, & mountain in the background, are beautiful.  :triumph:

    A great looking cook. Sadly, every time (both) I have attempted to cook lamb it has resulted in a mass coyote poisoning when I have had to throw it out. It really was that bad.
    It's either a cultivated taste or some sort of black art involved in the preparation and cooking that transforms it into something delicious. 
    I have been a miserable failure with it.
    Again, your's looks spectacular.

    @Botch I was trying to capture the sun, Which we haven't seen in awhile coming thru. Your right though it needed some more light. Western Montana is home. Hntnhrd is the license plate on my truck ( hunting hard)lol. 
    I have had lamb maybe three times before this always had a "bite"  to it. This thing stunk bad when I took it out of the cryopack. Rinsed real well and took ALL the fat off of it and let it sit in the garage fridge on a rack for 24 hoursThouroughly rinsed the net bag thing As it stunk bad also. Before I seasoned there was no smell at all. Took about an hour and a half at 325 on the egg. Pulled it at 127 and it was great. Cut with a butter knife and no Gamey ( venison/ deer flavor at all. 
    Thanks for the kind words guys I was nervous about this one!!

    Well it was a success!! Pulled it at 127 while we drinking a couple beers. Incredibly tender and no " gamey" flavors. Had loaded baked potatoes and fried green beans topped with a honey Bourbon Huckleberry sauce that is a modification of @Big_Green_Craig cranberry borbon sauce. Lamb is a definite do again cook!!!oh I even got the fork in there!!! 
    Love lamb and we had great lamb off the Egg too.
