Just thought I'd share this with the forum. Inspired by titch's slow cooked lamb post below, I thought I give one a try. Apart from a normal oven, only other option I have is a Q220. Now I have read on here that low and slow is a problem for the Q series as it does not go low enough. Well I made mine go low enough. What I did was simply almost turn the gas off, but just keep it high enough to keep the flame going. And I occasionally turned the gas off for 15 minutes or so, then turned it back on.
After almost 8 hours cooking, here is the result:
Meat was absolutely beautiful. Succulent, juicy and oh so tasty. Considering it was an IGA Leg of Lamb, I was gobsmacked at how tender it was. For those interested, here's the recipe.
2kg Leg of Lamb
4 cloves of fresh garlic
1 onion sliced
2 cups of chicken stock
1 cup of red wine (use something you enjoy drinking)
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Salt & pepper
Brown lamb in a frypan. At the same time quickly fry onions. In a large roasting dish, combine chicken stock, red wine, 3/4 of the BBQ sauce, lemon juice and the onions. Cut garlic into long strips. Poke holes in lamb and insert garlic. Rub olive oil, salt and pepper into lamb. Pour remaining BBQ sauce over lamb and sprinkle Rosemary on it. Place lamb on trivet over the baking dish.
Turn Q on and set gas as low as you can get it. Cook for 7-8 hours, occasionally turning gas off for 15mins or so then turn it back on. Serve with roast potatoes and veg. Use juices and onions in roasting dish as a lovely gravy.
Enjoy with the rest of the bottle of red
