  1. In a large sealable plastic bag or a glass dish, combine all the ingredients.
  2. Add the lamb and coat thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for about 12 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat the grill, setting the burners on medium-low.
  4. Drain the meat, keeping the marinade aside. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Insert a roasting pin through the leg of lamb and cover with aluminum foil. Install the pin in the grill spit. Cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes over medium-low heat.
  5. Place a disposable aluminum baking pan under the leg of lamb. Fill with the marinade. Remove the aluminum foil and bake for about 1 hour, basting regularly with the marinade, until the meat has browned and is fork-tender. If necessary, add water to the marinade while cooking. Serve with the pan juices.
