      This is a delicious method for cooking lamb. The fresh herbs really gave it a nice flavor. I marinated it overnight. I did the spit method, and was going to use the indoor rotisserie but the weather was some of the nicest we have had for Christmas, so I cooked it outdoors on the gas rotisserie, with some apple wood chips for a little smoke flavor. Will be making this again, and will try the butterflied method during grilling season (will also try the potatoes then).

      Great lamb recipe! With permission, we used lamb chops rather than a whole leg of lamb. We were out of fuel for the grills, so I pan seared them. We used all fresh herbs but used regular olive oil. I also added some chopped green onion to the marinade. Using fresh herbs is key to a great lamb dish, and this recipe infuses a great blend. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
