For the lamb shoulder

  • 1 boned and rolled shoulder of lamb
  • 280g mandarin juice
  • 2 tsp fine salt
  • 25g lemon thyme, finely chopped
  • zest of 4 mandarins, grated on a micro-plane

For the glaze

  • 1 tsp lemon thyme, finely chopped
  • 500g lamb stock, reduced to 200g
  • 200g fresh mandarin juice
  • 200g orange marmalade


Place the shoulder of lamb on a chopping board and open so that it is flat against the board. Combine the mandarin juice with 200g water and add the salt and lemon thyme. Run this mixture onto the inside of the lamb, making sure to cover every section of the meat.

Place in a container, cover and place in the fridge for 12 hours.

Remove from marinade and sprinkle on the mandarin zest. Re-roll and tie into long joint using butcher’s twine.

Place the rod from the spit through the middle of the leg and fasten using the adjustable forks.

Set the charcoals in the tray of The Fusion BBQ, following the instructions on the user’s manual and press the lighting button on the front of the BBQ.

Place the skewer back on the rotisserie poles that have been previously placed on the highest setting, and press the rotisserie button also on the front of the BBQ.

Maintain a temperature of 60C at the surface of the meat by moving the charcoals around. Cook for approximately 3 hours or until a core temperature of 58C is reached.

In the meantime, prepare the glaze by combining all the ingredients together.

Brush the glaze onto the meat regularly after the first hour of cooking, and continue to do so for the remainder of the during the cooking process.

Best gift ever!

My family knows how much I adore having loved ones around and cooking up a storm - so they know just what to get me when I was given the 4K! So sleek and intricately designed, the quality is ridiculously good.

Dad absolutely loves his new 4K

After doing my research I decided to buy the 4K as Dad’s fiftieth present. Let’s just say he is truly in love. I can only speak from my experience, but the quality of food created from this barbeque is like no other.
