I cooked a leg of lamb a couple evenings ago, and it smelled wonderful! Someone told me to make some cuts in it and put garlic cloves in. I didn't have garlic so I poked bits of onion in. I rubbed some olive oil on it since it was quite lean, and I sprinkled some herbs on it ('italian seasoning' mix of stuff like rosemary and oregano). It smelled really good and it tasted very mild. I used a meat thermometer and turned it off at 145° and let it rest, covered, for 20 minutes.OK what I would like to know... was there a smell when you cooked it; a smell, not pleasant akin to stink? The ONLY experience I have with lamb is someone else cooking it and the odor was horrible.
@Baymule - I'm glad your lamb turned out so well! Mine is good, but I'm still having a hard time getting used to eating something I've raised. I know it's something I'll just have to keep working on.
