    Slow roasted mutton (or lamb) with red currant and chili glaze.

    Writing this up now, will upload the photos later so if you're interested stay tuned for that i guess

    Wanted to try this for xmas, so experimented with it last night and it came out amazing.

    Ingredients

    1 leg of mutton or lamb, bone out.
    1 jar of red currant jam (or similar, slightly tart jam)
    2tbsp molasis
    1 red chilli, finely chopped
    1 1/2 tsp of balsamic vinegar
    Salt and pepper
    Fresh Rosemary
    Garlic

    Slice up some cloves of garlic really thin and cut pieces of the rosemary into roughly the same size as the garlic, on the fat side, stud the meat with both the garlic and rosemary and season liberally with salt and pepper.

    Sear in a hot pan (or on a grill) and brown it really nicely, then pop in your oven at 160 for 2 hours or on your grill, indirect with a few cherry wood chunks for the same amount of time.

    Mix the jam, molasis, vinegar and chili in a bowl and after that 2 hours, spread it all over the meat and let it cook another 15-20 minutes or until the glaze has well and truly caramelized.

    Let it rest and you're good to go

    Came out great in a test batch, hopefully you give it a go.

    Yep, that's the idea. It's a very subtle smoke that doesn't impart much flavour but it compliments the sweetness.

    Angus explain "stud the meat" for me.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Make small incisions into the meat about 1/2 an inch deep and put garlic and rosemary in these incisions.

    I tried this again a little while ago, i found that sambal (thai ground chili paste) works far better than a fresh chili.

    Apart from a banana and a muffin for breakfast, I had a cronut and coffee at 10.15am

    Slow roasted mutton (or lamb) with red currant and chili glaze sounds the shiz. Keep it up Angus

    Post it up Angus. We need to harden our arteries as some of us are far to fit for our ages. Take Maca for example, he is drawing the pension now and the way he is going he will be a burden on the tax payer for at least another 65 years.

    This is a fantastic recipe. The only way to good a good mutton, I use a variation of this recipe, and experimented with your cranberry sauce tonight on a lamb that I grew last year. The result were wicked!
