Found a lovely leg of lamb, just over albs (bone in) – scored the skin, rubbed with olive oil, chopped garlic, rosemary and freshly ground pepper.

Lamb roasted at 425-degrees for 20 minutes and then an additional 60 minutes at 325-degrees until it reached an internal temperature of 135-degrees for medium rare. It was a little rarer at the thicker part, which was perfect.
