LEG OF LAMB WITH MIXED VEGETABLE SKILLET

LEG OF LAMB WITH MIXED VEGETABLE SKILLET

Leg of lamb – a classic that is often served on special occasions. The thought of sizzling meat with heat and smoke flavour, alongside crisp, freshly grilled vegetables cooked on a Monolith makes our mouths water! Here’s how it’s done:

The day before:

First, debone the lamb legs (or get your butcher to do this for you ahead of time). It is best to cut along the bone with a flexible fillet or boning knife. Then marinate them overnight with lime juice.

Preparation:

The next day, assemble and put the meat on the rotisserie, fix it with butcher’s tape or twine tightly to hold in place. In the meantime, fire up your Monolith to 120 – 130° C. Then place the rotisserie on the grill, put the skewer with the legs of lamb in place, and leave to rotate at 120° C for approx. 3.5 hours.

To obtain a subtle smoky aroma a trayful of your flavour choice of pellets can be added to the embers with the feeder system, the Monolith Beech pellets pair well with lamb.

The vegetable skillet:

Dice all the vegetables (1:1) and place them in a cast iron pan. At about 1 hour before the lamb is due to be ready, place the pan under the skewer with the lamb legs on the rack, this will add extra flavour to the vegetables in the pan with the fat and meat juices dripping down.

We recommend an internal temperature of the lamb to be about 57 – 60° C for a perfect medium-rare, and the meat to be slightly pink and very tender, but feel free to adjust this to your preference, medium is 65 – 70° C.

Enjoy your meal with your guests.

Netflix Chef's Table Star Dario Cecchini is a new Monolith Brand Ambassador.

Monolith welcomes the world's most famous butcher as new brand ambassador: we welcome Netflix star Dario Cecchini.

He is the man who has already publicly butchered a pig to the sounds of Hell's Bells. Where "butchered" is actually not the right term, when Dario Cecchini sets the knife with surgical precision and maximum respect for the creature and makes wonderful delicacies from the animal. For the king of beef, his philosophy has always been the "from nose to tail" concept of holistic processing. He is a master of his trade, considered the most famous butcher in Italy, if not the world. What he does can be called craftsmanship. But art would be at least as apt. For, despite all the hell’s bells, Cecchini is a subtle, cheerful and affable person and not a butcher who celebrates a martial appearance with a butcher's blade.

Family tradition

Even though Dario Cecchini is a world star for a man of his profession, his down-to-earthness sets him apart. He is a butcher in body and soul, the eighth generation of his family to follow the same path, and proud of his history. He was influenced not only by his father's craft, but also by his grandmother's culinary skills. These are still his roots. His place is behind the sales counter of his small butcher's shop in Panzano in Chianta. This is in Tuscany, and the Tuscan culinary tradition is also what Cecchini lives and loves. Not just with regional specialties in his butcher's shop, but also in his restaurants Solociccia and Officina as well as with his Cecchini Panini Truck. One of its many specialties is the Bistecca Panzanese

Cecchini, Netflix Chefs' Table star and morer

People from all over the world come to shop with Dario Cecchini. And, of course, the charismatic butcher hasn't been completely hidden from the media. Cecchini became a Netflix-Star when the company dedicated an episode of Chef's Table to him, in which he was able to present in detail his philosophy and his very own way of living his dream. Long before that, none other than Anthony Bourdain had set out to meet Cecchini in Panzano. Accompanied by a camera, of course.  Countless newspapers and magazines have also written about Cecchini and his history over the years.

Working with Monolith

The fact that Monolith and Dario Cecchini have now come together is thanks to another of our brand ambassadors: René Kalobius, who also lives in Tuscany and has appreciated the advantages of a ceramic grill for many years.

Because that's what it's all about. For Dario Cecchini, too, the monolith has turned out to be a perfect grill, on which a whole menu has been created. The monolith not only fits his way of cooking, but it also fits wonderfully into Tuscan cuisine. And so it is a very logical step that we, who build ceramic grills with the same love of traditions as Dario Cecchini is a butcher, now follow a common path. And we look forward to many great dishes from the world's most famous butcher.

Smart grilling with the BBQ-Guru

LESS WORK, MORE ENJOYMENT WITH THE BBQ-GURU CONTROLLER

Our Kamado Grill is ideally suited to so-called long cooks, dishes that require extensive grilling times, thanks to its insulative ceramic. If you want to automate this process, the BBQ Guru is the best choice for you.

THE BBQ-GURU COMPANY: OUR PARTNER FOR LONG COOKING TIMES

Barbecuing is about timing, and sometimes timing requires a degree of patience. Cooking on a ceramic barbecue can take a few seconds to several hours, depending on the dish, and this can be troublesome for impatient grillers. Especially the classic disciplines, such as the cooking of the deliciously popular pulled pork, are often associated with many hours of cooking. How great it would be if cooking in the kamado overnight took care of itself and you don’t have to worry about the temperature stability in the night? To relieve you of this extra work, we work with the BBQ Guru.

HOW DOES THE BBQ GURU WORK?

The BBQ Guru is now available in three different versions, each of which does its job; they control and regulate the temperature inside the ceramic grill. A thermometer inside the grill measures the temperature of the fire. In addition, depending on the BBQ Guru version there are 1-3 temperature meters for the barbecue itself, which measure the core food temperature and adjust the intensity of the fire accordingly.

The computer in the BBQ Guru uses the temperature data inside the grill to adjust the air supply to the fire automatically and instantly. A more detailed description of how it works can be found here on our website. As the Monolith is weatherproof and well insulated, the temperature control works in all weather conditions, in both summer and sub-zero temperatures. Naturally, the BBQ Guru is equipped with the latest technology and can now be controlled quite easily via app.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHEN USING THE BBQ GURU?

The BBQ Guru is extremely easy to use and requires neither special knowledge nor a complex installation. The fan can be installed in the ceramic grill without any tools, or on versions such as the Monolith LeChef BBQ Guru Edition, it may already be installed in the kamado. The operating instructions are easy to understand and the BBQ Guru app makes access to all functions even easier.

HAS THE BBQ-GURU BEEN TESTED INTENSIVELY?

Sounds like a rhetorical question? Of course the different versions of the BBQ Guru, together with our Monolith, have already been thoroughly tested! So, if you haven’t yet decided whether the BBQ Guru is right for your next barbecue creation, take a look here.
