    This is too funny,

    My wife and I were talking about making some donair meat up on the EGG this morning!

    I know I am am from and live in Nova scotia, but a Donair is 10x better than any Gyro.

    You can aslo do balls with the donaire meat and wrap them in bacon and smoke and cook them low and slow! and serve them in mini pita bread! They are called Doink Balls!

    Seems like the big thing around here now is Donair egg rolls as well.

     

    The Pizza shops are putting doair meat in an egg roll wrapper and then deep frying them!

  • MillsyMillsy Posts: 113
    Thats it I need to make them today.

    You guys & gals call it a Donair....but it looks like a fajita. Why is it called a Donair?

    "The sandwich is really a combination of a bastardized donar kebab and a gyro with a very funky sauce"

    The meat is made almost like a meat loaf and is not solid steak. You also only have diced tomatoes and onions with the Donair suauce.

    Gyo's (another type of sandwhich ) made in other parts, uses similiar meet but tzatziki sauce. The only thing that makes them similar to a Jajita is the lita bread!

    @ Fliehigh...are you referring to Gyro's? Thanx for the description Sounds yummy!

    This is the kind of don air kebab I am used to after jars at the local, I haven't had a decent one since coming to Canada.


    I don't know how you would achieve it on a BGE though as it is usually on a rottiserie:


  • neumskineumski Posts: 41
    This is flat out a Gyro...I've never heard it called a kabaaaaaaaab haha. Ya'll talk funny!

    Ya sorry, I meant Gyro.

  • FliehighFliehigh Posts: 76

    Also to help with those of you not familiar with the east coast of Canada, it is pronounced:

     

    (Doh, nare) Doh like homer simpson and mare (female hourse) with an N.

     

    Donair. They are not like the Kebabs from Europe as these are more like a GYRO. It is a local spin off that you can only truely experience if it is created here or from a local reciepe and you have had a great night of Drinking and dancing!

    Its looking pretty good Millsy! I like to cook mine rolled out flat on a pizza pan I find it has more flavour and better results that way!

    Thats is almost 6 lbs of beef and i dont know how else to get that much spread out on the egg.I cut thin strips off of it and fry them before the go on the pita so they all get that special crispy love.
  • FliehighFliehigh Posts: 76
    I like them and do the same as Millsy when I make Donairs.
