Mary had a little lamb...

Post  Don Marco on Sun Mar 23, 2008 1:51 am

Howdy folks...

Im just back from a easter party with some of my bbq buddys and families.
The temps were around the freezing point and it was a nice mix of snow and rain all the time.
Besides s***loads of ribs, chicken wings, burgers, ABTs and other stuff i finally
made a fire in my rotisserie roaster.

Cooked a ~23 pound lamb on it, seasoned with Olive Oil, kosher salt, black pepper, herbs de provence, lemon juice and garlic.

Cooked it over lump charcoal and cherry wood chunks for ~4 hours and it was insanely flavourful, tender and juicy but crisp like a potato chip on the outside.

See for yourself :

Looks awesome Marco... doing mine tomorrow, looks like it'll be a twin, same cooker, same weather and same size lamb.

4 hours didn't see what the inside looked like, was it still pink?

We cooked it to 68 degrees C inside, so it was a perfect pink in the thighs and the loin.

I think im gonna talk to Doru and order a second heat shield, as the cold wind was stealing a lot of the heat.
Once we figured out the right ammount of charcoal it cooked along nicely, but we started with too few coals.

One thing you should watch out for is to stay away from cold windows, at keast if you dont like
those spiderweb patterns on the glass Embarassed

Looking forward to see your lamb.

Cheers,
