We have a gas grill and use it year-round, especially to make these tender juicy kabobs. The lamb marinates overnight, and the attractive skewers can be quickly assembled the next day. —Kathy Herrola of Martinez, California

"It was just not the taste that I remember when I was in Greece. Maybe I just fixed it wrong"
