Cull Yaw

Firebowl Cull Yaw Leg (+Others!)

Firebowl Cull Yaw Leg (+Others!)

My wife bought me a firebowl from The Indian Firebowl Company one Christmas and I keep meaning to use it more. I had 10 days off from work to use holidays up and planned to cook every day, the weather forecast was looking pretty good so it was time to fire up the firebowl! With half a side of Cull Yaw in the freezer from Phillip Warrens it was time to cook Firebowl Cull Yaw Leg.

The Meat:

18.40kg Half Dry Aged Cull Yaw from On the Pass by Warrens – £166.40 delivered.

Everything went straight into the freezer except the chops as I split them up first, to get an idea of the quality of this meat look at the photo below!

For this cook I was using a leg.

The Cook:

Lekto had sent me firelighters, kindling and logs to try so I used all three on this cookCull Yaw

Stacked with logs on the bottom and kindling on top then the firelighters.

Fire started

Nice!

Once the fire had died down a bit I pushed the embers to the side then hung the tripod hook through the Cull Yaw leg and raised the chain about half way up

I had salt water in a sprayer and applied it frequently through the cook. The fire was fairly easy to manage, I just added logs to the side every once in a while and pushed the embers over.

As the lamb was getting close to temperature (55C) I added two Petromax Dutch Ovens full of water and Jersey Royals potatoes.

It was easier to place them on the grill than hang them off the tripod chain!

Tenderstem brocolli and Asparagus rolled in oil and salt.

Then grilled directly over the embers

Held in a pan to keep warm whilst the potatoes were finished in butter.

The lamb was about ready so I took it off the chain and placed it close to the heat, aiming one part at the heat to cook a bit more.

Time to Eat:

SUMMARY:

I have wanted to cook on the firebowl for a while but life always seems too busy to take an afternoon out to sit by the fire. Doing this on a day off was awesome, it was great just sitting by the fire and having a slow day. I need to do this more often! 
The Cull Yaw leg tasted fantastic, very tender meat with a delicate flavour and cooking it over logs had added a nice hint of smoke to it. Just lovely!
I was impressed with the Lekto products, I will write something once I have used them up.
