    Lightly Smoked Boneless Leg of Lamb with Dolly Rub/Paste - for Easter

    I trimmed off most/all of the fat cap, salted and rubbed with Dolly Paste last night and left it in a ziploc in the fridge over night.

    Here's what it looked like before salting and rubbing:

    I am cooking at 225ºF-235ºF going for in IT of 150ºF. Using a small amount of whiskey barrel oak (Jack Daniels) chips for smoke flavor. I am also cooking with a drip pan on a lower rack. I am hoping to have something to make a brown gravy with.


    Wow. Sure beats my 2 boneless pre-cooked hams. Course, anything not pre-cooked under stinkin' 170 internal is only good for me in this house.


      Looks good.


        Came out great. Will post pics a bit later.


          Here are the pics:

          My gf was able to eat some of everything. Her mother joined us for dinner. We washed it down with a 2004 Muir-Hanna Napa Pinot Noir.

          The gravy was pretty good. Not too smokey. I used drip pan juices (I didn't get any fond). I put a couple of small squares of glace de viande from my fridge in it which makes it rich and darkens the color. I used a little bit of red wine to cut a little bitterness from the smoke.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
