This is the Lebanese version of the Turkish doner kebab or Greek gyros. It is traditionally cooked on a rotisserie in restaurants but this recipe helps anyone make it at home. It can be served on top of a fatoush salad or in a toasted pita sandwich. Dede's garlic sauce is a perfect compliment to this sandwich and is traditionally served that way.

NOTE: TO USE DEDE'S CHICKEN SHAWARMA SPICE USE 1.5 tsp OF IT AND JUST OMIT THE CARDAMOM, 7 SPICES, PAPRIKA, CINNAMON AND CAYENNE PEPPER
