DIY TANDOORI OVEN with pictures

 

http://www.jamieoliver.com/jimmytandoori/to.pdf

 

You can create your own tandoori oven from items you may find in your garden

shed, here's what you will need;

 

• Clean metal dustbin

• Clean Terracotta plant pot (we used a 43cm)

• 12 Fire bricks (we used standard size 23x11.3x6cm)

• Sand

• Vermiculite

 

…aŶd soŵe DIY esseŶtials;

 

• Angle grinder with cutting disk for metal and masonry

• Safety gloves (heavy duty)

• Safety Goggles to meet EN1161F standard

• Dust mask to meet FFP3 standard

• Ear defenders

• Tape measure

• chalk

 

1 Step 1: Arrange your fire bricks into a

square, then place the dustbin on top

and use it to trace the outline of the

base onto the bricks with chalk. You will

need to use an angle grinder, with a

masonry cutting disk fitted, to cut them

to shape so they fit inside the dustbin.

Step 3: Turn your plant pot bottom

side up, and measure about 3cm.

Use your angle grinder, with a

masonry cutting disk fitted, to cut

away the top, save it as you will

need this later to cover your oven.

Step 4: Stand your plant pot onto

the firebricks and place it next to

the bin. Ideally the top of your plant

pot wants to be level with the top of

the Dustbin. Compensate for any

height difference using sand once it

is inside the dustbin.

 

Step 2: Cut 4 bricks in

half as shown; Then

shape your brick halves

to form the fire pit

enclosure.

2 Step 7: Place the flower pot

onto the fire pit brick

arrangement and backfill the

dustbin with vermiculite, you

can replace the flowerpot lid

to prevent vermiculite falling

into the oven chamber! Any

gaps above the air vent can

be filled with offcuts of brick

you may have laying around.

Step 5: Now that you know the depth required, place the appropriate

amount of sand into the bottom of the dustbin and arrange your fire

bricks inside onto the layer of sand. Arrange the remaining bricks

around the edge of the dustbin, leaving a gap approximately the size of

one brick. This forms an air vent and allows removal of ashes.

Step 6: Measure from the top of your

bin to the top of the bricks lining the

base, and mark either side of the

opening. Now take an angle grinder

fitted with a metal cutting disk and cut

out a slot for the air vent.

3 Step 8: Once you have filled

the bin with vermiculite to

the top of the flower pot, you

are almost ready to use your

tandoori oven, just add

charcoal!

Your tandoori oven should now resemble the diagram below!

4 End User Notice

 

Your tandoori oven is strictly for outdoor use only.

Only use power tools in accordance with manufacturers instructions.

Ensure all necessary safety equipment is worn at all times. Work must be carried

out in a well ventilated area. Ensure there are no flammable materials in the

work area as sparks may be present during cutting. Please note the side of your

dust bin may become very hot when in use. Store your oven in a dry place, do

not light your oven if your terracotta plant pot is damp as it may crack

Only one?

 

Surely it would have been more kudos to add its mother and pet dog too!
