Ignite the charcoal in the Big Green Egg and heat the EGG, with the convEGGtor, to 150°C.

Meanwhile, for the herb mixture, peel and finely chop the garlic. Remove the stalk from the chilli peppers and slice the flesh finely. If you like spicy food, you can leave the seeds in. If you prefer a milder flavour, remove the seeds. Remove the needles from the rosemary and the sprigs from the thyme, and chop finely. Mix these ingredients.

Sprinkle the leg of lamb with sea salt and rub in the herb mixture by dabbing it. Put some of the mixture in the opening where the bone was.
