Even though we now have our own Kane BBQs (here's a great shot of the Kane Clamps--a must for roasting whole animals on a spit), the Labor Day date has stuck. This year's lamb came from Otterbein Acres, just down the road. The grass-fed lamb was phenomenal! As always, Spiro, Danny, Bob and Brian do the carving

Why We Roast Goats on Labor Day
Long before there was a goat roast at Painted Hand Farm, there was the Skarlatos family lamb roast on the Saturday prior to Labor Day. They had such a cool rotisserie, that we asked to borrow it to roast a goat prior to it being put away for the following year. Given that the lamb roast is always a late night gig that usually culminates with everyone using the hay wagon as a dance floor under the stars and illuminated by a bonfire, we need at least a day to recover before we can toss another shindig.
