Barbecued Leg of Lamb with garlic and rosemary.

Barbecued Leg of Lamb with garlic and rosemary.

Leg of lamb around 2.5kg
1 garlic bulb
1 bunch rosemary
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 carrots, cut into large chunks 1 onion, cut into quarters
1 glass red wine (about 150ml) 1.2l beef or lamb stock

1. Stud the lamb with garlic and rosemary and using a sharp pointed knife; make small incisions all over the meat. Peel 4 garlic cloves, thinly slice and then push a slice into each incision. Next, pull off small sprigs of rosemary and push into the incisions too.
2. Pre-heat the barbecue for in-direct 50/50 heat at approximately 200°C.
3. Sear the lamb over a direct heat on both sides. Reduce the heat of the barbecue to an in-direct heat of approximately 180°C.
4. Scatter the carrot, onion, remaining garlic and rosemary in a larger drip pan, pour in the wine and stock, then place the browned lamb in.
5. Roast (in-direct method) for about 1 hour 45 minutes. Turn the lamb halfway through so by the time it’s cooked, each side has been in the stock. For a medium finish, cook until the centre of the meat reaches 65°C. When cooked, remove the lamb and allow to rest in a warm place covered in foil for about 15 minutes.
