My top BBQ recipe idea for sheer WOW factor, is Butterflied Leg of Lamb. Lamb is great on the BBQ and guaranteed to impress.

Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Vegetable Kebabs
This lamb is great on the BBQ and guaranteed to impress. You can also cook it in the oven or even half and half. For best results, you should marinade overnight, but anything from 1 hour is fine. A butterflied leg of lamb is just a leg of lamb with the bone removed. When it is laid out, it is shaped like a butterfly. Ask your butcher to remove the bone for you. Some supermarkets will also do this. The cooking times here are a guide. it depends on how thick your meat it, how hot your BBQ is and whether you like your lamb rare, medium or well done.
