This recipe came from my dear friend, Janice in CO. This was the best lamb I ever tasted. Funny, the original recipe came from an old family friend of hers and his recipe called for grilling the lamb the amount of time "it takes to drink two very dry martinis." That turns out to be about an hour on a covered grill! A great special dinner for Easter Sunday. Cheers!
