Great recipe for Easter Dinner, we really enjoyed it. Only comment I would make is 175 is somewhat overdone. However it was still moist and delicious. Next time I will go for Medium Rare.

Really tasty rub- I used it overnight, and the flavor was just wonderful. I'm going to use it anytime I make lamb.
