Mary's lamb's Cousin in the UK

Post  Mack on Tue Mar 25, 2008 12:23 pm

Well after a bad start (wind 1 - Tent 0) I managed to borrow another tent, plus the weather was a bit more co-operative (wind had died down to a gale)... the lamb was set up.


Close up of the marinade/ glaze


2 small fires, as I didn't want the middle to cook too quickly


Some smoke


Close up of smoke (just for Roxy)


Where the heck is all this smoke coming from (me trying to smile whilst eyes are burning painfully)


Done!


All that was left.

That looks awesome! Did you feed a small Army?

From start to finish how long did the roast take and how long does it take to prep the lamb prior to mounting it on the spit?

Looks good enough, iŽd say its a draw between marys lamb and its cousin. (What a tragedy for the herd... Rolling Eyes )

How was the taste ? IŽd also like to know the marinade recipe.

Your fire seems really small compared to mine, but it was very stormy and cold when we grilled it.
How was the flavour of the smoking herbs ? I added a stick of cherry wood every now and then and
liked it very much.

The inverted charcoal try really looks like a mess Shocked

I think im gonna add a charcoal grate to my pan so the ashes fall right through and the pan doesnt get that hot.

Cheers,

DM

There were 12 adults and a bunch of rugrats, I did have some left overs, that I'll probably use in a curry later this week.
The cool thing with this spit, is that you can raise and lower the charcoal tray (just by flicking a switch), so you can slow or speed up the cook as needed... this lamb I cooked for 5 hours.

I'll settle for a draw with you any day Marco.
The taste was superb, I really like the Rosemary smoke. Can't give you the marinade recipe my friend, as it is a new product being developed in Belgium and I have no idea what it has in it (besides loads of garlic).
I used smaller fires as I didn't want to cook it too fast, plus I've found in the past, that if you spread the charcoal right across the tray (using other machines), we usually have to foil the mid section, in order to stop it burning through, as there is hardly any meat there.
