  4. Sprinkle water slightly around the pita bread and wrap those with strong aluminum foil paper. Close the packages tightly.
  5. Clean the grill grates. Brush the patties with oil around both sides. Grill those over direct medium-high heat with the lid closed for 7-9 minutes until the patties get 68° inside. Turn those around to another side for once. Put the bread packages into indirect medium heat and grill those for 4-5 minutes. Turn packages around to another side once. Take patties and pita bread out from the grill.
  6. Cut the pita bread into two pieces, and put 3 tbsp. salat and pour with a little dressing on every half bread. Now insert a warm patty into the half-bread. Pour more dressing over the patty. Serve them warm.
