D.I.Y. Tandoor Oven

Recently, I caught an episode of Alton Brown’s show on Food NetworkGood Eats(specifically, s13e17 – “The Curious Case of Curry”).  In this episode, Alton prepares another one of my favorite Indian disheschicken tikka masala.  While the rest of the episode about making tikka is not exactly relevant to this blog entry (maybe I’ll make tikka another day), his info on the tandoor itself is actually very relevant. Here is what you’ll need to make your own tandoor: The “Ingredients:”

  • Free standing Kettle Grill or Smokey Joe
  • 1 Large unglazed terra cotta pot, free of cracks or blemishes
  • Angle grinder with masonry blade
  • 3 LB Charcoal
  • Charcoal Lighter
  • Newspaper
  • Spray bottle of vegetable oil
  • Large metal skewers

The entire process is detailed in the YouTube video below:

Here is a link to part 1 of the same episode, in case you’d like to learn more about Garam Masala
