First Try... Halifax Donair Cooked On Vertical Beer Keg BBQ! Welcome Friends! Welcome back to the kitchen, today we are making Halifax Donair at home. If you have been following along you might have seen some of the videos where Julie and I went to Mexico City and we did a street food tour, eating a whole lot of Tacos al Pastor. It occurred to me that I've got a beer keg and I could turn that beer keg into a charcoal burning vertical rotisserie. But before I get into making tacos and shawarma I thought I would do something homegrown Canadian I'm gonna make a Halifax Donair.
