  • Biryani is a Mughalai Cuisine. Chuitya.

  • BS!!! slaves was not the first pit Masters. omg it dates all the way back to "Mid Evil" times and the 1,400's by white settlers. omg. get your facts right.

  • I am Greek Australian. Lamb is holy in our culture. We worship and eat lamb on a regular basis. We thank God that we live in Australia and lamb is so abundant. Come to my house and you will become a lamb worshipper for the rest of your days.

  • That's definitely not 100% Apple Cider Vinegar.

  • NOT BAMBI

  • addressing "Lamb" as a CUT?

  • A lamb shoulder roast is the very best! (We eat a lot of lamb/mutton in South Africa)

  • Biryani is not an Indian dish? Are y'all fckin nuts? Wt you have made there does not at all resemble to Biryani in India.

  • I am From Carolina and this is no way the NC Style BBQ. It is not the proper cooking technique nor does it look anyway like NC BBQ.

  • connecting briyani to Thailand is a sin and totally wrong and misleading

  • Lol that end. He is like yes keep feeding me I don't care lol

  • Biryani!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!

  • I like how he threw the heil in there when they opened up the lamb

  • Cause Americans does not know quality meat...they are wasteful creatures...

  • These guys are just super cool

  • Now imagine that was a saint bernard... grab the chop sticks.

  • You ppl should try goat🐐 instead of lamb

  • I’m insulted there’s no hush puppies or coleslaw. 😂 that’s a staple in NC bbq

  • Any chance you can share the recipe for spice rub. Interested in doing this to a leg of lamb or shoulder

  • Come to Croatia you will see whaat a real lamb looks like

  • I Saw BBQ so obviously I was interested and then I saw Lamb 🐑 and got excited 🙌🏿

  • Biggest Lamb I ever seen , how old was it ? I think that was Mutton ( older sheep)

  • Eastern North Carolina 😂😂😂😂

  • Completely destroyed meat ..you need some lessons from the Greeks how to roast lamb

  • "when you go around the world..." *lists a bunch of southeast asian countries lmao*

  • Keep the fish sauce away from my BBQ. Asians......

  • The size looks more like mutton. Lamb are the babies.

  • I could eat this whole thing...

  • In my opinion that bbq looking a little extra crispy

  • omg - roast leg of lamb with garlic and heaps of rosemary - if you have not tried this you are missing out. Amazing dish. Oh yeah - the leg is super easy to cook.

  • The sauces and stuff is a additive to carolina barbeque. Unless u was raised in carolina and seen a hog killed and cooked.. and the singer sauce some people here make.the ingredients is top secret. Good impression of carolina bbq.

  • "The vinegar paper sauce is kinda the single best way of eating meat" Never in my life i wanted to disagree with something so damn badly. While some meat dishes *may* taste better with vinegar & paper sauce. There are a variety of sauces that work better for most meats and sometimes there are meat dishes that will become terrible with the addition of acidity in them; not to mention they would destroy their pleasant sweat fragrance. But hey, i can respect what your are saying as you did clearly state at the start that that is your opinion; the same way how this is my opinion.

  • good lamb doesnt need all that added crap it was just too much

  • The history part may be a bit skewed...lol. Some Native Indians may sharply disagree with the technique of roasting, but we can let those in need of recognition argue that one...The vinegar and pepper is probably linked to the poverty most everyone in the South experienced then thus lack of other seasonings.

  • Nah you have the palate of a toilet if you don't like lamb

  • its ready if its burned!!!!

  • ewww fish sauce

  • Haha it's not BBQ lamb, it's burn lamb. How can these guy even continue the video with that outcome 😁😁😁zero thumps up

  • I need this!!!!

  • I don't understand how negative they are about lamb - it's probably the tastiest meat out there. AND THEY COOKED A WHOLE ONE! :D

  • that's not biryani

  • i am from Iceland and smoked leg of lamb is kinda our national dish smoked lamb is awesome

  • 4:42, you were 'expecting' it to be gross?

  • Chinese guy seems real mellow

  • 2 dorks.

  • somehow I'm imagining alien dining and commenting around a seared human carcass.

  • These dudes are awesome.

  • thumbs up twice, very interesting

  • As soon as you said indigenous I switched off....

  • The native americans were the 1st pitmaster, and bbq started in virginia.

  • if biryani is american then i'm barak obama

  • 100 love the respect in this show.

  • Why the hell is he rubbing poop all over the lamb ..... Disgusting

  • this asian dude talkin out his ass lol

  • That's not NC style bbq...more like a gentrified version of it. Like did he honestly think it was okay to call it NC bbq after putting in fish sauce...disrespectful

  • cant beat fresh mutton chops on the bbq way better tasting than lean lamb chops

  • "The reason people don't like lamb..." Who the fuck doesn't like lamb?

  • That shit burnt!!

  • Sign me up for a big ass bowl of weed and then give me a big ass bowl of that meat! fuck yea.!

  • Indonesian sambal is also taking part :))

  • An Asian guy doing NC BBQ in New York. What makes America great.

  • Love how the chef calls whole lamb a cut.

  • So it's biryani with Malaysian sauces, but its traditional american dish...... Ok then

  • "So excited to smoke this thing!" Has a very different meaning where I'm from. I think I'll side with the butchers on this one.

  • Why is everyone wearing gloves? It seems to me they are creating a barrier. We have been cooking using our hands for thousands of years, not with gloves...

  • Barbecue is disgusting. Stop apologizing for it.

  • You can’t give people wrong information

  • Sambal especially from indonesia

  • You forgot to say indonesia

  • The short dude in the red jacket always puts his hands in his mouth then touch’s the food, every episode never fails, 🤬🤬🤬

  • Tell your editor to learn the difference between mono and stereo. :3

  • "Mustard" :D :D .. noobs

  • Lamb just needs salt bro... bit of mint sauce maybe

  • I once tried lamb burger and it was sooooo delicious !

  • i truely HATE you guys .... every single time i watch this .... i got fu**ing HUNGRY !!! maybe 2 or 3 episodes more and i look like a jellyfish :D

  • That poor carcass died twice..

  • That's what animals caught in a bush fire looks like

  • You burn the whole thing!!!! I'll show u how whole lamb roast is done....

  • The gamey smell is not from oxidation, that's nonsense. That's the natural smell, and if you weren't so cruel and squimish, you wouldn't castrate the little rams and it would be even more gamey - exactly as people throughout Central Asia, the original sheep herders and cultivators, prefer it. And there are certain tendons and glands that should be consumed, which you clearly don't know. And that's just the first 2 minutes of the video. And don't let me get started on mustard [retching]!

  • That’s not a biriyani, it’s a Nasi lamak

  • thats not a lamb its way to big that mutton

  • hahahahahahaha. Mustard on lamb?????????? OMG.ΥΟU BURNED IT.

  • *R E A L L Y ?*

  • Thailand

  • I love how Tyson just blew these guys away SO casually. Yet it may have been his first time making this since he did not know how to split the carcass. If so, dam he's good at impressing these guys with the final product.

  • Where in NC uses yellow mustard on their hogs? NOWHERE. Brooklyn BS...

  • Can anyone tell me why I'm making myself hungry at 6 am when I'm poor?

  • I'll bet that tastes amazing.

  • "vinegar and chillis" uuhhm ok now I finally know which country ruined hot sauces

  • Tradition for who... totally disrespectful

  • What a boss way to figure out bbq'ing a whole lamb! Mixing culture, learning history... it's like the olfactory nerds dream. Hats off the this guy for Lewis and Clark 'ing food. Btw, he's absolutely right about mustard being antioxidants however if you were to mix in coriander leaves.... it's amazing. Only catch is you add it after the smoke.

  • damn! love this show! Ben and Brent are amazing!!

  • I'm Thai and yes there're lots of Biryani(it's not what we called it around here but I looked it up, basically the same thing) stalls in like every streets. But I never have it with lambs before and I think there're pretty much rare in this area (even in Muslim communities). Now I want it so bad. lol

  • Waiting for Indonesians to claim sambal is from their country. No one? #proudmalaysian Sambal is from Malaysia

  • Is that a health and safety approved method for transporting lamb?

  • I enjoyed that. For a moment in time I was a north huntsman on a sunny winter day

  • 1:5... Nobody wants the lamb shoulder! That maybe be true for "White America" but ask the Latin American, Mexican, Greek, Middle Eastern, Asian communities shoulder is the best for an honest meal/main course... For us lamb chops are just the appetizer! Shoulder $ per $, lbs per lbs can't beat the shoulder, it's a great margin.

  • I love lamb... but the way the meat is exposed and how they eat it is simply disgusting...

  • Is that a lamb or a sheep??

  • lamb is way to lean to smoke for that long. looked dry and burnt.
