    Steps to make Smoked Leg of Lamb:

    1. Prepare the lamb paste by combining the onion, garlic, 2 Bou beef cubes, anchovies, rosemary, thyme, salt, black and red pepper, and cumin in a food processor or chop together on a board. Use extra anchovy oil (or olive) as necessary to form a paste..
    2. Open the leg of lamb, and flatten out any lumps by scoring with a knife. Rub 3/4 of the paste on the exposed leg..
    3. Roll the leg back up, and truss with butcher's twine. Rub the remaining 1/4 of the paste on the outside..
    4. Prepare your smoker (or oven) to 275 °F. Cook the lamb until 130°F in the center. About 3-3.5 hours..
    5. Meanwhile, prepare the herbs and spices..
    6. Heat 2 qts of oil for frying to 300°F. Fry the parsley, mint, and rosemary for 60 seconds..
    7. Increase the oil temp to 325°F and fry the spices for 3-4 minutes. I use a fine mesh strainer to keep the seeds together..
    8. Place the fried herbs and spices on a tray lined with paper towels to cool. They will remain crispy after they cool down. You can even store the extra in a Ziploc for several days and they will remain crispy..
    9. Pour the bottle of balsamic into a small pot. Add the other beef bouillon cube, gelatin, and the mustard. Bring to a boil and reduce by half until the reduction clings to the back of a wooden spoon..
    10. I like to pour the reduction into a squirt bottle and keep it for other dishes. Just reheat in the microwave first..
    11. Place the potatoes in a small pot, cover with water and add 3 Tbsp of salt to the water. Bring to a boil and boil 15 minutes..
    12. On a sheet pan, prepare the broccolini. Lay the boiled potatoes out, and lightly smash with the bottom of a glass. Drizzle everything with olive oil and season with salt and pepper..
    13. When the lamb is almost done, prepare a bed of coals in a grill. Alternatively, when the lamb finishes cooking, remove from oven and heat the oven to 500°F.
    14. Sear the lamb, potatoes, and broccolini for 4-6 minutes..
    15. Remove and plate on a platter if desired. Sprinkle the fried herbs and spices on top for a table show piece..
    16. Plate with a slice of lamb, the potatoes, and broccolini, and drizzle with the balsamic reduction..
