    Papa D 1946-2012's Note:

    This is written for a charcoal water smoker. I use a gas smoker and use wood chips instead of chunks. Prep time includes marinade time. Best if smoker temperature is held at about 225° F. Lamb is best when served at medium-rare(145° F) to medium(160°F). Submitted to www.recipezaar.com on April 8, 2010.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Stir together first 8 ingredients until blended.
    2. 2
      Place lamb in a shallow dish or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; pour olive oil mixture over lamb. Cover or seal, and chill 4 - 6 hours, turning occasionally.
    3. 3
      Soak a couple cups of wood chunks/chips in water at least 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      Prepare charcoal fire in smoker; let burn 15 to 20 minutes. Drain wood chunks, and place on hot coals.
    5. 5
      Remove lamb from marinade; pour marinade into water pan, and place pan in smoker. Add water to pan to depth of fill line.
    6. 6
      For gas smoker pre-heat on medium for about 30 minutes with wood chips in the chip tray and water bowl filled accordingly.
    7. 7
      Place lamb on middle food rack; cover/close smoker. Try to maintain smoker at about 225° F temperature.
    8. 8
      Cook lamb 4 - 5 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of lamb registers 150°F Add charcoal, wood chunks, and water to smoker as needed.
    9. 9
      Note: Remove the smoked leg of lamb from the smoker or grill when its internal temperature reaches a temperature 5 to 10 degrees under your target done temperature. Cover loosely with tin foil, the temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees as the meat rests for 20 minutes (a must-do step) before slicing and serving. The result is moist, tender and full of flavor.
