Big Fat Greek Fatty Lamb Recipe
A fatty is the BBQ world’s version of a meatloaf. We’ve made burger fattys before. This one is a lamb recipe. Add some slow roasting, smoke and spices and even a simple chub of sausage is taken to new heights. This “Greek” fatty is inspired by the flavors of a classic Gyro. The roasted lamb, cucumber, and onion flavors will have you asking for a second slice. Pita bread on the side.
