World's Largest Donair (Gyro) Meat

The World's Largest Donair was located at the Charles Smart Donair restaurant in Edmonton. One can still see the window into the cold storage fridge where this mighty piece of meat once resided. But it has deceased. According to the cashier it has been gone three years. All that is left is a few mouldering newspaper stories pinned to the wall.
