    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 450°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

    In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and crushed garlic. Rub all over the leg of lamb.

  • 3

    With a paring knife, make about 24 small cuts all over the lamb, about 3/4 inch deep. Stuff the sliced garlic and rosemary sprigs into the slits. Spread the lemon zest and juice all over the lamb. Season generously with salt and pepper.

    Insert the probe into the thickest part of the lamb, avoiding the bone. Place the leg of lamb directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook for 30 minutes.
