Lamb tail for gyros

I'm planning on making homemade gyros/doner and I want to go all out. Does anyone know where I can obtain lamb tail? Thanks.

    I'm not sure why you need lamb tail. Just ground lamb should do you just fine (if you're doing like a Greek gyro--if you're doing schwarma, that is pieces of lamb stacked up,, then I guess probably leg of lamb or something cut up) . Lamb tail actually probably has too much fat...

      Lamb tail adds that something extra. You can tell the difference. And yes it does make it very fatty--that's why it's good.
