I am ordering a whole lamb direct from a local farmer, and they are having me fill out my cut-and-wrap order form. One of the questions is whether I'd like the leg of lamb with the bone in or boneless. I've never cooked either. Does anyone have a recommendation as to which they like better and why?

Also, what is better to get for chops and roasts: one inch thick or 3/4 inch thick?

I prefer it with the bone in for two reasons:

1)I think it has more flavor.

2) Easier (for me) to cook. I had a boneless one, and I had to wrap it with cooking twine and it looked like a bad girl scout project.

Still, both were yummy.

No idea about the chops, though. Why not ask the butcher/farmer for his recommendation?
