Not just for Easter, a Grilled Boneless Leg of Lamb should be in your year round rotation!  Here we utilize the Primo Grill’s versatility, the reverse sear method, and Primo’s Kleftiko Barrel Wine Lamb Rub to make this roast a winner.

 

Start by brining the lamb - use a ratio of 1/2 cup of salt for every gallon of water. We also added a few tablespoons of Primo's Kleftiko Barrel Wine Rub to the brine.
