Moroccan Cuisine: Traditional Mechoui in Marrakech

Traditional Moroccan Cooking at Morocco's #1 Cooking School http://www.sanssoucicollection.com/cooking.phpMechoui is the great grilled meat of Morocco. Traditionally made in giant pits in the ground that are lined with terracotta, the whole carcass of the animal is splayed and spitted onto a cross and propped up against the wall, whilst a small pot is laid below to catch the drippings (thus preventing fires or off flavours developing) and a charcoal fire is tended with long paddles at a short distance from the meat. In Marrakech, there a few master grill men that preserve this centuries-old tradition.http://www.sanssoucicollection.com/cooking.php
