Shoulder of lamb reheated on bbq...

Hello there,

I am planning on slow-roasting a leg of lamb on Friday and reheating bits of it on Saturday, on a bbq. Will this work and how would you do it? Parcels in tin foil? Any advice warmly received,

Thanks!

Bob

Why not do it on the grill rotisserie and not precook? If it isn't boneless, debone, truss and put it on the spit! IMO, lamb really doesn't reheat well unless it is cooked to death in a braise or stew. I prefer leg of lamb medium rare.

I'm afraid I agree with Craig. Better not to precook.

If you must cook in advance, then yes, I would suggest parceling in fairly small packets of foil. Very gentle reheat. With a gravy for moisture.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

If you don't have a rotisserie, perhaps start it off with indirect heat then on to the hot side just at the end to crisp. Hope you have a thermometer! Only way to really not be disappointed.

Thanks both, I feared reheat may not be great, hence asking. But the bbq is on a farm with no facilities and I can't be there all day unfortunately, hence the precooked idea! Might it actually be better to cube it raw and put it on kebab sticks?

I like the kebob idea. Go Greek! Use a marinade of olive oil, lemon juice, lots of garlic, fresh oregano, S&P. I'm sure you are aware that putting meat and vege on the same skewer usually ends up a disaster due to different cooking times.

Go ahead with the vege, just do them on different skewers, onions together and peppers together. heck if you don't need the whole leg for the one meal, grind some for shepherd's pie or moussaka.

When I do lamb shish kebab, I roast whole onions, peppers and tomatoes on the grill. I put the peppers into a bowl and cover them so the skins steam off. Then I cut up all these veggies and keep them hot while I grill the lamb kebabs.
