This barbecue and beer marinated lamb is an interesting twist on the usual barbecue recipes. The beer, barbecue, and ginger sauce is flavorful and really compliments the lamb.

For the sauce, combine the beer and sugar in a large saucepan and heat on medium low. Simmer until it is reduced by half and stir occasionally. Add the barbecue sauce, ginger, lemon juice, cardamom, allspice, and bay leaves. Continue to simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the sauce thickens before removing the bay leaves. Keep warm.

For the lamb, heat a grill on medium high. Rub the lamb with the barbecue spice rub and place shanks on the grill away from the direct heat. Grill on indirect heat for about 1 1/2 hours. Remove from the heat and cover with the ginger barbecue sauce. Serve immediately.
