      WOW, this was fabulous! Not 4 weeks ago I was a lamb hater. I started out with chops, then Moussaka, and then I was ready for an expensive cut - I loved this! Just seeing that dish of lamb marinating in the fridge for 3 days makes the anticipation build - and when you finally get to slice it after the grilling and resting - MAN it was worth every second of waiting! I used a 5 lb Australian boneless leg of lamb from Costco, whole milk plain yogurt from the Persian grocery, extra virgin olive oil, 3 perfect lemons from the yard and a fistfull of fresh rosemary from my garden. After the success I had with this recipe, I'll never be able to leave Costco without a leg of lamb again! OUTSTANDING!

      So delicious, moist and tender. Just perfect. And actually, I think you could serve this to a lamb hater and they would love it and/or not realize it's lamb. The grilling gives it a definite "steak" quality. This will be a regular grilling recipe from now on. :)
