Anyone ever smoke a leg of lamb? Just pulled one out of the freezer and roasting it seems boring to me right now.

After 12 hrs underground we didn't even need a knife to carve it you could pull the meat off the bones with your fingers

He was more in charge of this as I was brewing at the same time.

He used a very small amount of hickory. Nothing special that I can remember; salt, pepper and some kind of sauce.

Next time I talk to him I'll get the details.

It was pretty small but perfect for 3 people with sides. His dad has a small farm so that lamb was butchered just a few days before.

I can already taste it. Looking forward to a nice cold rainy day tomorrow. Smoking meat and drinking homebrew! Is there anything better than that on a nice fall day?
