    Take the boneless leg of lamp, and if it isn't tie with twine, tie it with kitchen twine or Cotton twine if you have it.

    Next, add thyme and red pepper flakes, along with salt and coarse black pepper, put in same small bowl with rosemary. (Salt and pepper to taste.)

    Take and poke several holes (10) with a sharp knife to insert the garlic on the top half of the lamb (fat side down).
  • 8
    Next, take the herb mixture, and rub over the top side of lamb (fat side down) and down the sides.

    When you have the lamb rubbed, put in the refrigerate, uncovered, for about 4 to 5 hours or overnight.

    Take lamb from the refrigerator and let stand for about 1/2 to 1 hours.
  • 11
    Set your oven at 325 degrees!
  • 12
    Meanwhile, take a small roasting pan, and put a rack in side of roasting pan.
  • 13
    Open the pineapple with pineapple juice. Pour the juice in the bottom of roaster. Layer all the pineapples on the rack in side of roaster.

    Take the red onion, peel and cut in half to where you get half slices, about 1/4-in. slices. Put on the side of pineapples around the pan.

    After 2-1/2 hours, check temperature of lamb with thermometer, inserted in center of lamb and about half way down through lamp. If thermometer reads 140 or 145 degrees, turn lamb back over (fat side down), and place it back in oven.

    After about 30 minutes, pull lamb out and check with thermometer. (I left my thermometer in meat where I wouldn't make to many holes in meat, and the juices want run out.) If thermometer reads 155 degrees, let lamb rest for about 5 to 10 minutes.

    NOTE: Bake 20 to 25 minutes per pound of lamb to get the temperature you desired. Don't forget, during the rest, the meat will rise 5 to 10 degrees!
