A smoked leg of lamb is a delicacy that is surprisingly easy to prepare. Requiring only 4 steps to make, this smoked version is moist, tasty and totally worth a try.


  • 1 boneless leg of lamb, about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds in weight
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Trim the meat of any excess fat and try to keep the meat an even thickness to ensure even cooking and smoking.
  2. Mix together the garlic, oil and spices and rub all over the lamb. Place lamb on a dish and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour to marinate.
  3. Set the smoker to 250 °F.
  4. Place the lamb on a smoker rack and smoke for around 3-4 hours or until an internal temperature of 145 °Ffor a nice medium rare. Or smoke longer for your desired doneness.
