Curry butter pulled lamb & Indian spiced cauliflower (PICS!)

After my previous thread where I said I didn't know what to cook on my BGE any more I made the above. I've done lamb before and it sometimes dries out on the outer, but this time I wrapped it loosely in foil and after 1hr at 160c and 8hrs at around 110-120c it was amazing and pulled really nicely. After this I may now try and foil pork butts because I find they can dry out on the outside too. 

I also put a spicer cauliflower in for a few hours which was amazing - love a roast cauli!

    Lamb looks amazing!  Thanks for posting - curry and lamb are two of my favorites. 

    Is that just a mixture of curry powder and butter?

    Did you let the lamb rest with the curry butter, or did you put the paste on and straight to the cook?

    Looks splendid. I'm not a fan of cauliflower, but that does look tempting.

    I would say that you got out of your rut in spades. That lamb looks splendid!

    Try making a slather out of yogurt, garlic, ginger, a little mayo, and spices to rub all over the cauliflower, then roast. Usually called "Gobi musallam". I think you'll dig it.

    I made some curry butter a while ago and found some spare in the freezer. I can't actually remember the method but I think it was this, mixed with butter:

    The cauliflowr was this

    I prepared both the night before so I could just put it on in the morning. Lamb had 9hrs, cauliflower about 2-3hrs
