@goldensky – You’re lucky you can go out and buy a gyro whenever you want to. I’m from a little town here in the Midwest and there isn’t a restaurant in sight that sells them.
The only time I get them is when the state fair rolls into town and that’s the first place I go. The rest of the year I have to settle with grilled beef kebab’s in my own backyard.
My wife did find a doner kebab recipe on the net awhile back and our local market has an isle of ethnic food ingredients. Even though I don’t have a vertical skewer I think we can still duplicate the flavors, or at least come close to it.
