  • 1 leg of lamb - boneless. Try boning one out yourself sometime. It's a fun learning experience.
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 5 sprigs fresh rosemary in all
  • coarse ground pepper
  • juice of 1/2 lemon


Dry brine the lamb

  • Sprinkle the lamb with the salt. Wrap it in a plastic bag and put it on a cookie sheet. Stick it in the fridge for 36 hours, turning it over every 8-12 hours. Just let the magic happen.

Grill roast the lamb

  • Set up your grill for indirect heat. You want to target 325F and stay there if you can. If there was ever a recipe that favours a kamodo, this is it. If you are using a different style grill, plan to add charcoal along the way.
  • Remove the leaves from 2 sprigs of rosemary. Tuck them into the flap where the bone was along with the garlic slices.
  • Season the lamb generously with coarse ground pepper. You don''t need any more salt.
  • Place the lamb in a roasting pan and roast it until it reaches an internal temperature of 130F, about 70-90 minutes. Spin the roasting pan every 20-30 minutes to manage any hot spots on your grill.
  • Remove the lamb from the pan and let rest, covered, for about 20 minutes.
  • Strain the pan juices and spoon off any obvious fat. Return the juices to the pan along with the lemon juice. Bring to a simmer.
  • Carve the lamb across the grain. Pour any accumulated board juices back into the pan with the lemon sauce.
  • Serve the lamb with a drizzle of sauce.
