Marinade of rosemary, thyme, parsley, garlic, cumin, S&P, EVOO and aged balsamic. Honey drizzle toward the end. Light apple smoke.  Good eatin’ and no complaints from the family.

    Thx y’all. @Canugghead , took it about 2.5 or 3 hours to reach 130 f IT at a dome of 225 to 250 f. Cranked up the heat at the end to let the honey caramelize some. About 15 minutes of that and then took it off, foiled loosely and rested for 30 minutes.

    Looks amazing.   I didn't use to be a lamb fan but done right I've developed an appreciation.

    I haven’t been fond of the lamb I’ve had that has been harvested in the USA. Seems to be very strong and gamey. The Australian and New Zealand products have never steered me wrong though.

    The legs of lamb I cooked for Easter were Costco/Australian. Very good.

    Agreed. This one was Publix/Australian. Very good flavor and tender.

    Thanks for the deets. Around here NZ lamb dominates, don't recall ever seeing Aussie lamb.
