    Re: Tandoor Oven

    The lid idea seems to work well, the fire does not smother and the heat stays inside to be absorbed by the pavers.

    The Blonde had a Corola ( the cockroach shape) which I battled to drive as the petrol engine is so not a biggish diesel. Thank heavens it was stolen.

    Also, do NOT use your fingers to feed already burning wood deeper into the oven, the back end is super hot as the steam escapes there. You will burn badly, so use another piece of wood or your...

    And a virreo. Jelo, see the reason for the longer tunnel, compared to the pic you posted. Although not critical, it just works better this way.

    About the fuel, this is about the largest one must use, I have found anything larger kills the draft and then it smokes.

    That works, I will pack one in the next day or two, it helps if the bottom entrance is a bit further away from the fire chamber. I'll show how as I have an idea.

    I cut some flashing to seal the top, it seems to burn well even with this lid on. This will also force heat into the bricks, which is what I want.

    Re: Tandoor Oven

    As lots of heat was escaping through the gaps I covered the outside with foil - makes a huge difference. I also started using a lid to seal the heat inside while cooking.
