My Little Persian Kitchen & The Copping’s BBQ Leg of Lamb

Now then, this is not my own recipe I am sad to say, however as soon as I tasted it I had to share it with as many people as I could! So from our friends table, to yours…. And thanks to Gem & Tim for sharing the recipe with me 🙂

We were invited to our lovely friends house for a BBQ a few weeks ago as the weather has been so glorious. They spoiled us with what they cooked up, it was so delicious! They did a whole leg of lamb butterflied by their own hands, marinated and BBQ’d. Perfection!

You could taste the love and care that went into preparing that for us and every bite made it worth while I can assure you.

So if you are planning on hosting a BBQ at the weekend and want to do something different I can highly recommend this!
