Slowly roasting a lamb shoulder results in falling apart, tender, succulent pulled lamb. This rub beautifully compliments the meat, allowing the lamb flavour to sing and the smoke to shine through.
Prepare the charcoal barbecue for indirect cooking over very low heat (110°C-130°C) with your desired smoking wood chunks.

Prepare your barbecue for indirect cooking over very low heat (110°C- 130°C). Add a large drip pan filled with warm water onto the lower cooking grill or install the Weber Wet Smoke Kit under the cooking grills. If you are using a Weber SmokeFire, set the temperature to 120°C and preheat.
Coat the lamb shoulder with 2 tablespoons of the lamb shoulder rub.
Brush the cooking grills clean. Place the lamb in the indirect cooking zone. Roast the lamb over indirect very low heat, with the lid closed, for 4 ½ hours. Spritz the lamb with the beef stock in a spray bottle, every hour.
Once your barbecue has preheated to the set temperature (SmokeFire: 120°C), brush the cooking grills clean with a wire brush. Roast the lamb over indirect very low heat, with the lid closed, for 4 ½ hours. Spritz the lamb with the beef stock in a spray bottle, every hour.
After 4 ½ hours, or until well coloured, place the lamb on several sheets of aluminium foil and generously spritz. Tightly wrap the lamb in foil. Insert a Weber meat probe into the thickest part of the meat, avoiding touching the bone. Cook for a further 2 hours over indirect very low heat or until the internal temperature reaches 93°C.
Leave the lamb to rest in the foil for at least 30 minutes before serving.
