    Half a bag of charcoal and some briquettes busy burning. One can see which side the breather vents are.

    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.

    If fired with wood yes, a ninja rocket stove. The vent at the bottom will have to be bigger though, I think.

    I know you'll figure it all out.

    You've inspired me to look around the farm for some bricks. Maybe search for the masonry cutter for the angle grinder. Bevel the bricks like when you build a pizza oven roof.

    Or maybe just be lazy and pile them in a square.

    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.

    Jelo, I added just three pieces of wood to the oven and it works, the rocket effect is audible.

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

    So having used the Tandoor a few times now I reckon it is a worthwhile implement. It uses surprisingly little charcoal and cooks perfectly.

    Some of the things I've cooked:

    Hung a pot to cook in, dound this needs more heat if one wants to cook faster. Something to do would be to drop the pot down onto the coals till one gets internal temps up and then hang.

    hmmm you'd need a ratchet winch or simple block & tackle, I'm not sure I'd like to lift a boiling full dutch oven using a threaded rod..........
