Gyro meat -- homemade? buying (online/at store)? storing at home...?

Russel Shank | May 7, 2010 11:03 PM

Gyros are such a good, quick and easily made lunch. Way overpriced though.

Anyone have luck buying gyro meat? Is it easily bought at Mediterranean markets, or should I buy online? Any stand out brands? Are prepared gyro meats full of preservatives/chemicals?

Does homemade gyro meat come out well? Does it require a meat grinder or special equipment to mix? Any food safety issues with mixing beef/lamb and storing?

Tips for storing it? I was thinking of cutting it into portions and freezing it, for easy defrost and foasting later -- will this turn it into a dry brick?
