Set aluminum pan on top of Heat Deflector Plate (under grill) to collect drippings. Be sure to check internal temperature at about 45 minutes as you do not want to overcook your lamb. Adjust time on grill depending on size of lamb

Trim all visible fat before seasoning and cooking. Lamb is higher in fat than many meats. Enjoy this great dish as a treat and limit your portion sizes. Serve with roasted potatoes, veggies and a low fat gravy or red wine jus. Roast potatoes can be cooked at same time by cutting up put in glass dish – sprinkle a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and cook with the lamb.
