My wife, Fiona, and I love to grill whole butterflied leg of lamb. It’s perfect for low-key entertaining because some sections of the meat cook to medium rare, others medium, and still others medium well—so everyone’s taste is sure to be satisfied. Because the meat is relatively thin, butterflied lamb cooks much faster than a traditional leg.
Butterflied leg of lamb has been completely boned and cut open into one large, flat sheet. Choose a fairly lean piece with medium- to deep-red meat and little connective tissue. To make the cut easier to handle, separate it into smaller pieces at the seams, if you like.

very, very good. Both wife and girls loved it. very flavorful and bold.
Really excellent marinade. I left the lamb in the frig overnight and it gave great flavor. I think it would work well with venison as well. Lots of garlic flavor, but not overpowering. It is very easy and would make a fine company meal.
