Instead of butterflying a boned leg of lamb and cooking it whole instead carefully cuts along the four natural muscle separations (they’re easily visible) and pulls the four pieces apart with your fingers. Grilling the lamb this way is quicker, makes it easier to determine doneness, and simplifies carving. Plus the meat develops a mellow flavor and lots of delicious crust.
