    I am going to try to smoke my first fatty this weekend. I worked at a greek pizza place in high school and my favorite pizza had lots of feta cheese, gyro meat, mushrooms and pepperoni. I thought that this would make a very good fatty. Does anyone know a rub that would give the meat that good gyro taste? Also, I saw someone who had a fatty that was baked in a bread crust. How is this done? Thanks in advance. -Andy

    I love greek food, dip that fattie in some tzatziki sauce. Sounds awesome.

    You are right. Tzatziki is a must. I can't wait.

    That sound like a great idea, I love gyros, and most greek food. Keep us posted on how you make it and how it turns out, I'd be interested in making one myself.

    There's a breakfast place in my area that make gyro omelets, they're so good. I know they will supply me the gyro meat, and I can make and get everything else.

    Would ground lamb work for the meat? Isn't that what's in a gyro?

    Andy, that was my Pizza Fattie. After your fattie is done, roll a pizza dough (that you can buy in a can like a can of biscuits) around the fattie and and bake it in an oven according to the directions on the can. You can sauce and and sprinkle cheese on the dough first. then roll it. Good Luck !
