the Ingredients

Roasted Leg Of Lamb
  • 1 x 2 to 2.5 kg leg of lamb
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs
  • ½ lemon
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • 01 Prepare the barbecue for indirect cooking over medium heat (190°C to 230°C). If you are using a Weber Q barbecue, set up your barbecue with a convection tray and trivet.
  • 02 Using a sharp knife, cut 10 to 12 small slits into the flesh of the lamb. Push a piece of garlic and a small sprig of rosemary into each slit.
  • 03 Squeeze the lemon juice all over the lamb. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 04 To estimate the cooking time, measure the meat through its thickest part and cook for 1 minute per millimetre for medium. For example if the roast is 90mm thick, cook for 90 minutes.
  • 05 Roast the lamb over indirect medium heat for 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours, with the lid closed, or until cooked to your liking.
  • 06 Once the lamb has cooked, remove from the barbecue and leave to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
