Hardwood Hickory

Lamb seasoned with a flavorful marinade, Traegering this primo cut will ensure every bite melts in your mouth.

Ingredients

1 Lemon, juiced and rinds reserved

1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar

4 cloves Garlic, Minced

2 Tbsp fresh or 2 tsp dried Rosemary, Minced

2 tsp fresh, or 1 tsp dried Fresh Thyme, Minced

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Black Pepper, Freshly Ground

1 cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

1 Onion, Sliced into Rings

1 (4-5 lbs) Leg of Lamb, Butterflied and Boneless

Preparation

For the Marinade: Cut the lemon into quarters and remove the seeds. Squeeze lemon juice into a mixing bowl and reserve the lemon rinds. Add the red wine vinegar, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper and stir until the salt crystals dissolve. Whisk in the olive oil.

Remove any netting from the lamb. Put the lamb into a large resealable plastic bag.

Pour marinade into the bag, and add the onion and the reserved lemon rinds.

Massage the bag to distribute the marinade and herbs. Refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.

Remove the lamb from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Discard the marinade.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Arrange the lamb on the grill grate, fat-side down. Grill for 15 to 20 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees F for medium-rare.

Let lamb leg rest for 5 minutes before slicing. To serve, slice thinly across the grain. Enjoy!

Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb
I did this recipe and everything was great except for the time to cook. That lamb is not going to get even warm inside in 20 minutes. A gentle hint to anyone planning to use this recipe, do not expect it to be ready for the table in 20 minutes

Amazingly Delicious!
This recipe was so easy to make and was incredibly tender, juicy and savory. We flipped the lamb every 15 minutes. Our pellet smoker only gets to about 390 degrees on high, so it took about 45 minutes for the lamp to reach target temp. Will definitely make this again!
