In large bowl, mix together garlic, onion, bread crumbs, oregano, 2 tbsp (25 mL) water, mustard, cinnamon, cumin, salt and pepper; mix in beef. Divide into 8 portions; shape each around 8-inch (20 cm) metal or soaked wooden skewer, pressing to form 4-inch (10 cm) sausage-shaped oval.

Place on greased grill over medium- high heat; close lid and grill, turning twice, until firm and no longer pink inside, about 7 minutes.
