Tuesday BBQs

With Zoe away the next two weeks we thought we'd (read I) would whip up a quick bbq for the parents and friends ahead of that. Quick menu was a boned leg of lamb, meatball patties, vafried GF sausages, oven fried potatoes (Agria) steamed scallopini, and salads.

By the time everyone had arrived the lamb had marinated in a mix of olive oil, seed mustard, lemon juice, fresh herbs and salt/pepper for about 45 mins. Salads were ready and all I had to do was manage the cooking.

Got the bbq up to about 600 with all burners on high and hood down, threw the lamb onto the hoplate and turned off the outer burners and the middle one down to low. I'v off the found that then leaving the bbq alone for 30 mins turns out a medium rare leg, get the that stage place the sausages along the rack at the back so they cook away from the direct heat, then added the meatballs once I lifted the lamb to rest tented in foil.

All very easy and quick and appreciated by all.
