Greek pork gyros recipe without rotisserie

What if you would like to make some gyros but haven’t got the necessary equipment like a rotisserie? When Morrison is left alone to make a video, he comes up with the best ideas.

Morrison made the easiest gyros that taste like the real deal. Just follow this recipe and find out how he tackles this problem.


  • Pork neck
  • Olive oil

For the dry rub

  • 1 part dried oregano
  • 1/4 part sea salt
  • 1/2 part paprika powder
  • 3/4 dried thyme
  • 1/2 part of garlic powder
  • 1/2 part of cumin powder
  • 1/4 part of dried basil
  • 1/4 part of chilli flakes
  • 1/2 part of ground black pepper

How to

  1. Mix the ingredients for the dry rub. Put some olive oil on the pork neck and sprinkle a light layer of dry rub all over the meat.
  2. Fire up your grill and make two zones. One zone for grilling and another to put the meat when it goes too fast.
  3. Now you grill the meat on all sides until a good crust has formed. Don’t worry about a core temperature because you will only use the outer layer of the pork neck.
  4. You slice the outer layer of the meat in short strokes and start making a gyros pita with garlic sauce or tzatziki, slices of red onion and tomato.
  5. Sprinkle another layer of dry rub over the meat and put it back on the grill to form a crust. You set the pork neck on the indirect side when you are too busy building the next pita or eating.
  6. Just continue until all the meat is roasted.
