Butterflied Leg of Lamb

mrgreenbeenz Mar 25, 2010 09:20 PM

Looking for a 4-5 lbs. butterflied leg of lamb for bbq. Would rather not pay a premium for whole foods or gelson's but will of that's the only place to get quality. Would Vallarta have it? Locations between N. Hollywood and Downtown preferred.

      Marconda meats at the Farmers Market. Great quality, good butchers.

        I bought boneless leg of lamb last week at Costco. Marinated it in yogurt mixed with tons of spices then grilled it and it was great.

            Each leg was around $20-$22 --- and I think they were about 4-5lbs each.

              Just an update if anyone was curious: Struck out at Vallarta and Super King both. Only chops at Vallarta and frozen shanks at Super King. Nada for the one Smart and Final I peeped either.

              I think a trip to the 3rd St. Farmer's Market or Costco is in order.

                Trader Joe's is where I always get mine. Prepackaged of course, smallish (which is what I want), not too expensive and quite good. The one I most often go to, on South Lake in Pasadena, had a bunch of them the other day. I generally prefer it on the bone but these are nice for grilling.
