Volkswagen Golf used for spit-roasting a lamb


To many Eastern Europeans, the only way to enjoy barbecue is the tradition of spit-roasting a lamb. You might not like it, but if you're Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian, Bulgarian or Lithuanian, spit roasting is one of the most delicious meals. Bosnian's roast lambs are often part of many celebrations. This photo was taken a few days ago in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
To spit-roast a lamb the guys on the photo have come up with this unusual idea. Rotating the lamb on the spit for some people is very boring. You have to sit by the hot fire and rotate the lamb on spit for almost 4 hours. So, these guys decided to use a 12 volt car battery to power a small motor which then rotates the lambs on the spit.

The car they used is the second generation Volkswagen Golf, still one of the most popular cars in Bosnia where Volkswagen has always had the reputation for solid built-quality and reliable engineering.
