BBQ Marinated Boneless Leg of Lamb

We had a gorgeous BBQ leg of lamb for dinner last night.  My sister did cooking and I marinated it.  The day before I put the leg of lamb in the marinade and turned it a couple of times.


1 carton (about 3 cups) of Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp of olive oil
1 Tbsp (2 or 3 cloves) of garlic
the juice of one lemon
1 Tbsp of Herbes de Provence
salt and pepper

Stir the marinade together and roll the lamb in it to completely cover.  Marinade up to 24 hours (at least 2 or 3 hours) in the fridge.  Tie the leg up with kitchen twine so it will cook evenly.

Heat up your BBQ or oven to about 400 degrees.  Cook 2 hours or until it is done to your liking.  I like medium rare - still quite pink.  When you are BBQing, heat one side of the BBQ and place roast on the other side (indirect heat) with the lid down.  Check and turn a couple of times.  Let it rest about 20 minutes before slicing.  The yogurt marinade is very flavourful and keeps the leg very moist.  Enjoy!
