Smoked Irish-Style Lamb and Potatoes

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


This is convenient dish since you can cook everything in the smoker. Just load everything up and let it go for about 3 hours.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 6 to 8


  • For lamb:
  • 1 lamb leg, boneless
  • 3 tablespoons fresh rosemary
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • kitchen twine
  • For potatoes:
  • 15 medium potatoes
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper


Prepare mixture for lamb in a small bowl. Butterfly lamb and place half the ingredients inside and rub remaining ingredients on surface of lamb. Close lamb leg and tie with kitchen twine to secure it. Place on the top shelf of smoker. Allow to smoke for about 4 hours at 225 degrees. One hour after lamb has been in the smoker, place potatoes, onion, and bell pepper in sturdy pan. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Position the pan with potatoes under the lamb. Expect drippings from lamb to come into contact with potatoes. Allow potatoes to smoke for 2 to 2/12 hours. Be sure to stir occasionally.

Excellent, Member ca_chris

Great flavor, simple to do. I would never have though of placing the potato pan under the meat. My lamb gave off a lot of drippings so I ended up having to drain the potato pan before serving. Excellent recipe.
