Have you ever tried a boneless lamb shoulder roast recipe? We love making delicious meals with food harvested on the homestead. This ram/lamb was given to us last year from a family wanting to give him a new home and the time has now come. He lived out his remaining days eating our growing green grass around the homestead and running and playing with the other sheep.
When the time came to butcher him, I knew exactly what meals I wanted to get out of him. Ribs, lamb chops, and a number of boneless roasts including those from the shoulder.
A shoulder roast is one of the most tender and juiciest roasts you can get from a sheep. There is a perfect mix of fat and meat that keep the roast tender and full of flavor. So much so that if you’re new to roasts and you make a mistake, a lamb shoulder is very forgiving. There is a good chance you are going to impress whomever is sitting at the table when you bring in the platter.
The challenge for most will be how to get a lamb shoulder to experiment with in the kitchen? Buying this particular cut of boneless meat at the butcher is going to run you about $50 on the low end. Lamb is expensive anyway but I’ve seen roast like this go as high as $100 in certain high end markets. When you raise your own animals and butcher them yourself, you can eat like a king.
This recipe is going to take you step by step with pictures on how I prepared the meat and then gave is a slight smoke flavor and finished it off in the oven. The result was lamb perfection!

Wow, you have definitely inspired me to try this shoulder of lamb. We have prepared leg of lamb but not the shoulder. Thank you.
Am not off the grid yet but am working toward this goal have my family looking for a ranch am also watching Dug and Stacy they’re offgridders as well. Dug and Stacie went to an amish store (my court adopted mother’s father was from the amish community… Explains alot, found this out after her death) what I found interesting was propane powered refrigerators and other appliances. Never used a wood stove to cook but have cooked on an open fire when camping. City gal learning country ways to go off the grid. How do you use a wood based stove to cook?
We do not have a wood burning cook stove although we can heat things on top of the stove, like water etc. We primarily cook with propane. We used a propane refrigerator for a short while, but they use a lot of propane so they are expensive to operate. Thanks for asking. Tim
