The Girls love this recipe because it takes less than 30 minutes to make but looks and tastes like a four-star chef swooped into your house and whipped up dinner for you!

The Girls’ friend “Sideshow” Bob is a Navy SEAL and his specialty is leg of lamb—perfect for this time of year! Like a good Navy boy, he wanted us to know that he originally got the recipe out of Playboy magazine – apparently some men really do get it for the articles, or recipes!

But Elizabeth and the rest of the team can’t rest on their laurels. She and pitmaster, Pete Daversa (her partner in hat crime from last week) are testing new recipes for the restaurant. Tuesday was a great day of smoke and spice and two “experiments” landed a home run. The smoked Cowboy Steak for two was the best steak Elizabeth has ever eaten and Pete’s Chili- Rubbed Smoked Lamp Chop Lollipops were heart-stoppingly good. The unbeatable combination of three sugars, a little kick of cayenne, savory onion, garlic and chili powder in the rub and the deep smoke from the Texas post oak wood was so good it made you want to hug your momma! And, best yet, since you have to get up early to make the ‘que, Elizabeth and Pete were sucking on these lollipops at 9:20 a.m.!

Once you have boned and flattened the leg of lamb, you can stuff it with all kinds of seasonings that make it even more delicious. Guests get a kick out of the surprise in the center of the roast and the extra ingredients add a touch of luxury to a simple grilled meat. Stuffed lamb also makes great sandwiches the next day.
