4 to 5‐pound boneless leg of lamb, rolled and tied
1/2 Stiebs Pomegranate Seeds, fresh or thawed
1/2 cup pomegranate syrup, plus extra for serving, store‐bought or recipe follows
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Pomegranate Syrup: 4 cups pomegranate juice 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice Place the pomegranate juice, sugar and lemon juice in a 4‐quart saucepan set over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Once the sugar has dissolved, reduce the heat to medium‐low and cook until the mixture has reduced to 1 1/2 cups, approximately 50 minutes. It should be the consistency of syrup. Remove from the heat and allow to cool in the saucepan for 30 minutes. Transfer to a glass jar and allow to cool completely before covering and storing in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.

Preheat the grill to 375 degrees F. Unroll the lamb and brush on all sides with the syrup. Season on all sides with salt and pepper. Roll the lamb up and secure with butchers' twine. Place the lamb over indirect heat and cook for 15 minutes, brush with the syrup again. Turn 1/4 turn and cook for another 15 minutes. Complete the brushing and turning procedure 2 more times for a total cooking time of approximately 1 hour or until the lamb reaches an internal temperature of 130 degrees F. Remove from the heat and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with additional syrup and topped with Pomegranate Seeds.
