I was born and raised in the NY tri-state area. I've been eating gyros all my life, and have never seen them cooked any way other than on the vertical skewers as in Phu's photos. Getting all-lamb gyros in NY was never a problem, but in recent years, it's becoming more and more common to see the lamb/beef mixture. Although I'm becoming more accepting of the practice, to me, if it doesn't have lamb in it, it's just not a gyro. Personal preference.
