2 c Alder wood chips
1 Lean, (3-pound) bone-in leg of lamb roast
5 Cloves garlic, sliced
1 1/2 c Chablis or other dry white wine
1/4 c Water
3 tb White wine Worcestershire sauce
3/4 ts Cracked black pepper
4 Bay leaves, crumbled
6 Fresh (5-inch) mint sprigs

1 Alder wood chips produce a delicately flavored smoke that enhances the taste of the lamb without overpowering it. Mesquite chips can be used= also. Find wood chips for smoking at hardware or grocery stores. 2 Soak alder wood chips in water 1 to 24 hours. Drain well. 3 Trim fat from roast. Make 1/2-inch-deep slits into roast; place garlic= in slits. Combine wine and next 4 ingredients in a large zip-top heavy-duty plastic bag. Add roast; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove roast from bag, reserving marinade; set aside. 4 Prepare charcoal fire in meat smoker, and let burn 15 to 20 minutes. Place alder chips on top of coals. Place water pan in smoker; add reserved marinade and mint sprigs. Add hot tap water to fill pan. 5 Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place rack in smoker. Place roast on rack; insert meat thermometer into thickest portion of roast. Cover with smoker lid, and cook 3 hours or until meat thermometer registers 140 deg (rare). Refill water pan with water, and add additional charcoal to fire= as needed. 6 Remove roast from smoker; let stand 10 minutes before serving. Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 3 ounces lamb).
