last minute decision gyros

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I came across a good deal on a boneless leg of lamb roast and decided that I wanted to try making gyros at home.

I did just a simple rub of salt, pepper, olive oil, rosemary, and thyme.

 

 

 

 

Threw it in the smoke until 140°

 

 


Getting ready to rest for 30 min

 

 

I threw it on the slicer and sliced it thin

 

 

 

I didn't realize I bought flat bread instead of pita bread so its a sandwich instead. With the homemade tzatziki sauce.

Bone in $12 a kg or there a bouts. Prices always stronger in winter here. Aussies raised on it especially country town types. I remember first non family paying job was $117 a week nett w/o overtime, in 1977.You could buy a side of lamb(big lamb at that) for $12 cut however you wanted it. Leg,chops x3 ,chump,loin,4 quarter ,cutlets,2 shanks,neck & bone for the hound $12 the  lot.

Some things about the good old days were genuinely good:biggrin:

I would say most were. One thing missing back then was this (SMF).

Price on lamb is strange here too: local is more expensive than fresh, although they breed them year around not just in spring.

Drought has made it hard & pushed prices up. Goat has got pricey too, more expensive than lamb as much as $ 19 a kg for prime cuts & $13 for shoulder. Roo stable I will be eating more of that!
The lamb out of New Zealand would be cheaper for buyers in USA & Canada ,no drought ,softer dollar,no shortage of stock.
Yes there are some great things about this era,SMF one of them.
