Smoked lamb with Blackberry sauce


Low and slow, smoked lamb, definitely makes me feel like I am home again. Whenever I get a little home sick, a delicious, juicy and flavorful leg of lamb is always my go to.

I smoked this lamb on the incredible Nomad Grill and it did the job incredibly! This smoker is super portable, but also has plenty of space to cook enough meat for a bunch of people!

Lamb is often accused of being gamey, but it is a lot less gamey tasting than things like elk or deer.

What you will need

  • 3 Tablespoons dried rosemary
  • 3 Tablespoons dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 5-6 pound, bone in lamb leg

  • Blackberry Sauce

    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 2 cups fresh blackberries
    • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
    • 2 Tablespoons blackberry preserve
    • Pinch of nutmeg.


1. Begin by trimming the fat on the lamb leg to have an even 1/4 inch across the whole leg. Trimming the fat down will allow it to render as it smokes.

2. Mix together all rub ingredients until well incorporated, before applying liberally across the full surface of the lamb. If needed, you can brush on a light coat of vegetable oil, to help the rub adhere.

3. Place lamb on a 225F-250F smoker until it hits your desired internal temperature. Lamb is generally considered to be perfectly cooked when it hits about 125F-130F.

4. As the lamb cooks, prepare the blackberry sauce. Place all sauce ingredients into a medium sized sauce pan, on a medium heat. Bring to a light simmer (approximately 5 minutes) and stir constantly until well incorporated.

5. Once lamb is cooked, remove from smoker and allow to rest for 30 minutes, lightly tented in foil.

6. Carve lamb into 1/4 inch slices, slicing against the grain to allow for the most tender slice possible.

7. Smoke until the pork is crispy and the sausages have cooked all the way through-approximately 30-45 minutes.

8. Serve lamb with the blackberry sauce and your favorite, Sunday roast sides.

Smoked Honey Duck

Duck has to be one of my favorite meats and when smoked, it’s even better! Duck has a much gamier flavor than chicken and is a lot more similar to red meat than white (you can even eat it medium rare!) This recipe is full of flavor, with the sweetness of the honey, the contrasting saltiness and deep umami that comes from the Soy Sauce.
