Cooking a couple of legs of lamb on a spit roaster is an easy way to cook for a special occasion or even at Christmas.  While you can cook a leg of lamb in your normal kitchen oven, cooking a leg of lamb on the spit will give you a delicious smoky flavour and allow you to also cook other meats (or multiple legs of lamb) on the spit at the same time.  

Ingredients:

  • 1 duck
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 6 long bacon rashers
  • 1 onion
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablestppon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic 

Method:

  • Blend all the ingredients together and rest the duck in the mixture overnight.
  • Remove the duck from the mixture and wrap in bacon

Attaching it to the spit:

  • You'll need a skewer, 2 chicken prongs, butchers string and toothpicks 
  • Pass the skewer through the duck trying to keep the load as balanced on the skewer as you can. 
  • Insert one chicken prong through either side of the duck and lock in tight
  • If you're having trouble securing the bacon to the duck, use butchers string and toothpicks.  

 

Cooking time:

Many things will affect your cooking time, however allow around 3 hours to be on the safe side. If it's ready a little earlier, you can always push the charcoal to the side and raise the duck to the top of the spit roaster so it stays warm but doesn't actually keep cooking. Use a cooking thermometer to test the internal temperature and once it gets to 75 degrees, you know it's cooked.
