BBQ Lamb with Fresh Herbs

Want to get that warm weather feeling on? Well sit back, chillax and enjoy a classic, kiwi BBQ. This BBQ lamb recipe results in perfectly cooked lamb every time.



  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano (we love parsley too)
  • 4 tablespoons rice bran oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 lamb rumps (or whole rack of lamb works well too).


  1. Finely chop the rosemary and oregano. Mix together with the oil, black pepper and salt.
  2. Place the well-trimmed lamb rumps (or rack) in a shallow container and pour over the marinade. Rub well into the meat with your hands. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Heat the barbecue to medium-hot. Sear the lamb rumps on all sides, then allow to cook for about 15 minutes turning occasionally. This will achieve a medium-rare lamb, but much will depend on the heat of the barbecue and the thickness of the lamb rumps. Make sure that it is not over-cooked. Allow lamb to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

“I love to do a Sunday Roast when all the family is together. This lamb recipe is a summery roast on the barbecue which has become my family’s favourite roast meal!” Linett Ram, Hamilton.
