    Butterflied Leg of Lamb w/Elevated Grate

    Grilling 12X27" butterflied leg indirectly on a 22" Performer. I cut it 2/3-1/3 and am going to use the SnS Elevated grate for the smaller portion, a bit thinner than the larger cut. Main grate temp will probably be around 300-325. At elevated temps around +10%-15% higher than the main grate, I'm guessing the smaller cut will take around 3/4 the time to cook. Sound about right to you? Any suggestions for managing the cook? Thanks!

    Certainly sounds good, which I had a better recommendation but I normally keep my boneless legged rolled up after I butterfly and apply the Dolly's Lamb Rub.

      Never thought about rolling and have never done it. Do you tie it in a multilayered roll and grill away? Please tell me more!

      Just when you roll it back up, try to keep it in a uniform shape, like a log, so it all cooks at the same rate.

    If you’re going to flay it open, tie it to a spit and cook it on a rotisserie, if you have one that is. They come out great that way 👍


      My only suggestion is to make sure you don't overcook, I take ours off just prior to 130 internal but I cook it at 250. At 300-325 you will get a little more carryover and for our tastes lamb gets a little tough north of 135. Good luck and we want pics.


        All advice good and noted with thanks. And Redwng , I'll try to remember the pics!


          Leg-O-Lamb paired with Mint-Jelly. Got to love it,
          Butterflied for even grilling to just the perfect internal temps.


            I do deboned leg of lamb that's rested overnight in a Greek marinade (not my own from the butcher I get the lamb) and have always cooked over live fire (not furiously hot).
            My favourite lamb dish that doesn't get enough attention because of pricing.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            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.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
