Greek Marinated Lamb Spit Roast BBQ Recipe

Friend of Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes & Melbourne restaurateur, Stavros Abougelis, shares his delicious Greek Marinated Lamb Spit Roast recipe.


  • 3kg lamb shoulder, boned and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons oregano
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 onions, grated
  • 3 tomatoes, grated


Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Rub the marinade all over the lamb and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight if possible.

Prepare the spit roast BBQ ensuring the Heat Beads® Briquettes are well lit. Place the meat onto the spit and cook for approximately two hours.

Serve the spit roast lamb with crusty bread, tzatziki and a fresh salsa of tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and capsicum.

Serves a family!
