Australia Day is one of our all-time favourite holidays. A day where we get to celebrate the million reasons we love Australia. One thing us aussies are renowned for is BBQing. No matter what, it seems we can BBQ anything: meat, fruit, vegetables, eggs, you name it… we’ve BBQed it.
We’re still learning tips + tricks on how to BBQ awesomely (Merrymaker Dad gives us lessons, who, even though over cooks the steak + chicken sometimes, knows his stuff) but we’ve got a BBQ success story + had to share it IMMEDIATELY (just in time for Australia Day celebrations).
Roast is yum, yes? BBQs are the best, yes? Put these together + you have all kinds of amazing.
Introducing: paleo lamb roast in the BBQ!
Roasting lamb in the BBQ makes for the most tender of meats, results in no stuffy kitchen from the hot oven + even though it’s maybe one of the easiest recipes (ever), it’s kind of impressive! Plus if you’re the patriotic kind you really can’t get much aussie-er than this.
Here’s what we suggest: get together with a bunch of your nearest + dearest + BBQ your lamb this Australia Day! Plus, we’ve already got the perfect accompaniments to go with your paleo lamb roast in the BBQ like our caramelised roast pumpkin, summer salad + prawns wrapped in bacon. If that’s not the perfect Australia Day menu then we don’t know what is!

- 2kg lamb roast
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 2 cloves garlic sliced
- 2 tbs. fresh rosemary
- salt + pepper
- Turn all of the burners of your BBQ on to medium (the BBQ should be around 180-200 degrees celsius) a part from 1 burner - this will be where the roast will sit (you don't want your roast to be right on top of any heat as it will burn).
- Cut small slits into the skin of the lamb + press slices of garlic + sprigs of rosemary into the lamb.
- Rub with coconut oil + season with salt + pepper.
- To keep things 'clean' we like to place our roast into an oven bag (you don't have to do this) + then onto a baking tray or rack.
- Place the tray/rack into the preheated BBQ onto the burner that IS NOT on.
- Depending on how big your roast is, allow to cook for around 30 minutes per 500g.
- Once cooked allow to sit for 10 minutes before slicing + serving.
