Prep Time40 minsCook Time9 hrsTotal Time9 hrs 40 mins
 1 x 2-2.5 kg boneless lamb shoulder
 10 ½ tbsp tablespoons sea salt
 5 ½ tbsp tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
 1 tbsp tablespoon whole mustard seeds
 2 tbsp tablespoons sweet paprika
 5 ½ tbsp tablespoon brown sugar
 2 tbsp tablespoons freshly chopped rosemary leaves
 4 garlic cloves, crushed
 4 tbsp tablespoons mild American mustard
1

Prepare the smoker for indirect cooking over very low heat (110° to 130°C).

2

Trim any excess fat from the lamb.

3

In a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, whole mustard seeds, paprika, brown sugar, rosemary leaves, and garlic. Using a basting brush, paint the lamb with mustard and then evenly cover with the spice mix.

4

When the smoker is ready, add wood chunks (we used pecan wood chunks) to the charcoal. Place the lamb on the cooking grill, close the lid, and cook over indirect very low heat for 8 to 9 hours or until the internal temperature of the lamb reaches 93°C. If you are short of time, after 5 hours, wrap the lamb tightly in alfoil and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 93°C (approximately a further 2 hours).

5

Remove the lamb from the barbecue. Wrap in alfoil if you have not done so already, and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes before pulling the meat apart with two forks.
