Default Mary had a little lamb

So yesterday was a big day.... But I need to go back to Tuesday...







PS new taillights, @IDAFC21 likes this

...continued...

Then I had to get digging







...continued...

Well unfortunately it rained a lot this week







So I pumped it out...three times

...continued...

Thursday it was time to brine the lamb which by then was named Jerry



And buy supplies...



And a lot of wood



...continued...

So I got up really early on Saturday morning and started







We burned wood for three hours to get a nice base of hot coals. @Great White Drake I had a beer for you while burning wood

...continued...

Now it was time to let the fire smolder so we dropped in the blocks and started prepping Jerry





Then we busted out those supplies an wrapped all 36 lbs in a couple layers of foil, then wet burlap then baled together in chicken wire.

...continued...

Time to go in the hole



And seal it up...



And then we waited... Hole was filled at 10:40 and we started digging at 4:15



At this point the photos stopped as it was go time. I had 35 hungry mouths waiting but I will tell you it was awesome.
@SinisterSHO can vouch, he was a big help and the bearded wonder can be seen above

It was a great time, and the lamb was very good. Super tender, juicy, all the right things. Thanks for having me 👍

Worth noting how good it smelled, BEFORE we even dug it back out. But the smell while carving, omg.

Yes, I wish I could have recorded that smell so I could play it back again and again

You had a proper burial for the lamb but then went and dug it up?

Reminds me of peruvian pachamanka, same concept using the hot rocks and burying it. Trying to remember what I ate down there cooked that way but Im not really sure what it was. lol Some good stuff though, they wrapped the meat up in banana leaves I think. I've always wanted to try to do it.

Yeah Banana Leaves are the old school way, just not available here and easier using the modern materials.

The rocks I think is where we had issues. I used those landscape blocks because I had them laying around. I feel like the insulated more than captured and transferred heat like they were supposed to. I'm not a geologist so next time I am going to bring one it to let me know what I should use. lol

They are from New Zealand which has more Sheep than people. Oh and they are kosher or hallal or however that works.
