Cooking half a lamb on a spit is a delightful way to enjoy a flavorful and succulent roast. Here’s a step-by-step recipe for this impressive outdoor cooking method:

Ingredients: Spit Roasted Half Lamb

  • Half a pasture-fed lamb (approximately 15-20 pounds)
  • Marinade (your choice, see below for suggestions)
  • Spit rod and motor
  • Charcoal or hardwood for grilling
  • Butcher’s twine for trussing
  • Meat thermometer

Marinade Suggestions:

  1. Traditional Greek Marinade:
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 cup lemon juice
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
    • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  2. Mediterranean Marinade:
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
    • Salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Lamb:
    • Place the half lamb on a clean surface.
    • Trim excess fat and any loose or hanging skin.
    • Season the lamb generously with salt and black pepper.
  2. Marinate the Lamb:
    • In a bowl, combine the ingredients for your chosen marinade.
    • Rub the marinade all over the lamb, ensuring it’s well-coated.
    • Place the marinated lamb in a large resealable plastic bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight for maximum flavor.
  3. Prepare the Spit:
    • Assemble your spit rod and secure the lamb onto it. Use butcher’s twine to truss the lamb securely.
    • Make sure the lamb is balanced and centered on the spit rod to ensure even cooking.
  4. Start the Fire:
    • Prepare your charcoal or hardwood fire on one side of the grill.
    • Place a drip pan under where the lamb will be rotating to catch any drippings.
  5. Cook on the Spit:
    • Start the motor to begin rotating the lamb over the fire.
    • Maintain a consistent temperature of about 325°F (163°C) near the lamb.
    • Cook the lamb for approximately 15-20 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare.
  6. Baste the Lamb:
    • Periodically baste the lamb with any remaining marinade or a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice to keep it moist and flavorful.
  7. Monitor and Adjust:
    • Keep an eye on the fire, adding more charcoal or hardwood as needed to maintain the desired temperature.
    • Use a meat thermometer to check the lamb’s internal temperature, ensuring it reaches the desired doneness.
  8. Rest and Serve:
    • Once the lamb is cooked to your liking, remove it from the spit and let it rest for about 20-30 minutes before carving.
    • Slice and serve the succulent lamb, garnishing with fresh herbs and lemon wedges.
