Currently about to eat slow-cooked lamb shoulder with potato, kumura, carrot, broccoli and green salad.




o    2 teaspoons sea salt

o    6 garlic cloves, sliced

o    6 sprigs rosemary, 5cm long each, leaves emoved and chopped

o    1 tablespoon black peppercorns

o    100 ml extra virgin olive oil

o    3 tablespoons dried oregano

o    1 7/8 kg lamb shoulder, boned

o    80 ml red wine vinegar

o    125 ml water

o    1 lemon, sliced to serve


1.    Preheat a fan-forced oven to 170C (or 190C conventional).

2.    Grind salt, garlic, rosemary and peppercorns in a mortar and pestle to a rough paste.

3.    Add olive oil and oregano to the paste and mix well.

4.    Rub marinade into meat and place lamb in a ceramic baking dish.

5.    Add vinegar and water to the dish, cover with foil and bake for 2 hours.

6.    Remove foil, and increase heat to 220C and turn on oven grill. Brown meat for 3-5 minutes until crispy on top.

7.    Remove from the oven and shred meat into large chunks. Arrange on a platter and spoon over pan juices. Serve with lemon.

I cooked it cooler (140°) for four hours

Boxing Day leftovers. 

I bbq a shoulder of pork on Christmas Eve so today put the leftover chunk of meat (still on the bone) back in the Baby WeberQ  in a foil tray on a bed of onions,  in Bundergurg ginger beer mixed with bbq sauce and and several drops of mesquite liquid smoke. I dusted the pork with bonedust rub and have cooked for 2hrs. 

Looking forward to this in 20min.

Home made (not me) strawberry mousse...

No eggs (replaced with a secret indgredient) & no added sugar...

Absolutely bloody delicious...

Still mutton or the lamb was a whether.


Watched a show where they took a retired butcher quietly into various mall butchers and premium butchers charging big city prices and he showed that a hell of a lot of them were selling store whethers and there wasn't a lamb leg to be seen and in many cases the cutlets were a dead set give away (their size tells you this).


When asked where was the best place to buy authentic lamb he had no qualms in insisting the safest regular place to buy was most big supermarket meat departments because they were inspected  on a regular basis sometimes weekly mostly monthly. Suburban butchers were lucky to see a meat inspector he noted from experience.


I used to buy huge legs until I twigged.

Spring lamb, check the leg from top to sawn shank joint; over 300mm and your into whether territory.

2, 2.25, 2.6 kg pulls them up. I'll buy two before I'll but a big one.


Big ones are good for slow cooked pulled meat or boned and used for stews ect.


Mutton dressed up lamb.
