What to expect:

The term Mechoui "refers to the method of cooking a lamb or a sheep cooked whole on the spit" like a huge BBQ. The Charlotte annual Mechoui is a gathering with Francophone and American friends around this traditional meal. The cooking time varies according to the weight of the animal, typically about a half day. While the lamb cooks family and friends enjoy games and drinks.

Vegetarian are welcome as the Mechoui comes with many vegetarian dishes.
