Print recipe here! 


1 (5 to 6-pound) leg of lamb
5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
20 (1-inch) pieces fresh rosemary
1⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Set the EGG for direct cooking at 300ºF.

Using a small paring knife, make about 20 (1-inch) cuts evenly all over the lamb. Stuff each hole with a slice of garlic and a piece of rosemary. Brush the lamb with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the lamb to the V-Rack and set the V-Rack in the Drip Pan. Put the Drip Pan on the grid and close the lid of the EGG. Roast for 2 to 21⁄2 hours, until your thermometer registers 140ºF. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes.

Carve the lamb, transfer to a platter, and serve immediately.
