Roasting whole lambs. Time? ..

Phil_A_Mignon | Jun 17, 2013 09:32 AM

I will be roasting two baby lambs, about 20 lbs each, this Saturday. One will be roasted on a spit over coals, and one will be cooked in a bee hive-shaped, brick wood-burning oven. I know there are a lot of variables, but I am wondering if anyone has an idea of how long it will take to cook each? I am a fairly skilled home chef, but I have never done a lamb on a spit or in a wood burning oven before. Looking for approximate times here, and I'm also open for any tips or suggestions. Thanks
