    Cooking in an inside oven I don't even bother with checking temps.

    I copied your lamb shoulder and mine turned out awesome! It was the highlight at a dinner party. Will definitely be cooking again!

    Thanks for sharing.

    All looks great folks, I would just make the comment that the original recipe with anchovies will always give tastier results for this recipe, or lamb shanks. You will not taste the anchovies after the long and slow cook and it will enhance the taste to mega levels :)

    Dammit, just bought 1.5kg of chuck for the slow cooker... should've got a lamb shoulder instead. :(

    What's the going rate for bone-in shoulder these days? I haven't bought any large slow-cooking cuts for a couple of months.
    When I asked my butcher for 1.5kg of stewing beef around $10-$12 per kilo, he looked at me funny then offered chuck or gravy beef for $15.99/kg.
    And I noticed that $14-$15 per kilo seems to be standard for pork belly at the big supermarkets now.

    Am I just paying Sydney tax? What's a decent average price for bone-in lamb?

    I think our local coles has lamb shoulders on special this week for 7 or 8 bucks a kg. I'll be stocking up again.

    Love the mint/caper/vinegar sauce that Jamie Oliver and OP used.

    Time for me to smoke one - shops this arv!

    Thanks for the recipe - did this on the weekend on my WSM

    picked up a few lamb shoulders from Coles last week for $8/kg.

    basically - marinated for 48 hrs with Truffle Olive Oil, rosemary, 2 onions on the bottom quartered, insane amount of crushed whole garlics, salt and pepper, bit of white wine and some lemon juice

    woke up at 5am to start my WSM and temps reached 110 within 20 minutes (used a water pan with boiling water). meat was put in at around 5:45am.

    used Mallee root charcoal, started with my looftlighter, and placed 2 big chunks of apricot wood for smoking.

    topped up water in the water bowl at around the 12pm mark.

    served at 6pm on the dot.

    was one of the best lamb dishes I have ever eaten, and was demolished by the people.



    1) getting all the ingredients and the lamb into the dish (glad wrapped it for 48 hrs)

    2) 6 hrs in the cook

    4) pulling time - nom nom nom

    My god that looks delicious.

    Not cooked to temp or anything? Just until the bone was loose? I might bust mine into some marinade this afternoon preparing for a wednesday/thursday cook.

    nah, i figured 12 hrs would be fine - I've done lots of cooks on my WSM with different types of meat, so timing by weight is all I use now.

    as long as the WSM was cruising along around 110-120 for the entire 12 hours, it works fine for me.

    Just did one today, woke up early but I had high temps most of the morning, took it off after around 8 hours.

    Pic

    Looks like a raw piece of meat in the pic. I just gave it a quick splash with some Worcestershire and a little vinegar prior to wrapping. It's been resting a while. My biggest problem is I don't know what I'm having it with. Was leaning towards polenta and veg or something like that.

    Will have to try this - the missus is Japanese and most of them find Lamb "to stinky" and won't eat it but with all that rosemary I think I could convince her.

    .. and this is what happens when you go through your bookmarks after ever so long...

    last lamb I did was on the smoker/slow cooker back in march.. tad too dry but no one else complained, I thinks they were the scareds.. Due for another, or maybe some brisket
