A few months ago I purchased a propane powered vertical rotisserie to make some gyros and it has been great.

I have made beef and lamb, lamb, chicken and lamb and chicken gyros and they have all came out amazingly well.

This is for just lamb to get you started.

Leg of Lamb

1 large cumber

2 large vine ripened tomatoes

1 large red onion

Extra Virgin olive oil

Garlic powder (2 Table Spoons)

Oregano (1 teaspoon)

Rosemary (1 teaspoon)

Lemon (Juice it)

Salt ( 1 teaspoon)

Pepper ( 1 teaspoon)

Pita bread ( I buy from Costco premade)



Tzatziki sauce from Costco is better than what I make



Cut the tomatoes, Cucumber and onion into medium size chunks and set aside.

Slice the lamb into 1/2" wide slabs doing your best to get the widest pieces possible

marinate the lamb with the seasonings and 1 tablespoon of EVOO for a few hours.

You can cook the lamb in an oven but if you can get a vertical rotisserie it will be better.

Cook on the rotisserie until the outsides are crisp. Stop it and slice of the edges.

Turn and stop until you get all the way around then continue cooking.

Keep this up until you reach the center.

I want one.
I ate a thousand gyros in Germany and all were at donner kebab shops that were open after work hours. Just keep spinning and slicing and it cooks as you go.

Thousand? Rookie numbers my friend! J/K. If I wasn't in the field in Germany. I had them 2-3 times a week. And there was a little cart on base that made the best burritos I've ever had. To this day. I'm still trying to figure out that recipe. I'm close though.
