Anthony share with me these pictures of his Tandoor in action after watching my video. I think these pictures are really cool, and just think you can do this in your garden as well. CLICK HERE He also shared some details on his build, the outside pot is 50cm and inner pot 30cm. He also added a grid in the bottom to elevate the charcoal and improve the air flow.
Hi Anthony if you are reading this I tried to reply to your YouTube post, but when I went on the site it had disappeared. Well I just wanted to say thanks for sharing, and I hope you have many happy years with your Tandoor.
After yesterdays post on the clay to use for the Clay Oven, I got sent this picture of an oven that Ash is building. Now how cool is that!!
His next task is to add a render coating for protection, can't wait to see what it looks like once he has finished.
Must be summer as I have had lots of people asking me questions on the clay oven. The number one questions is where did you get your clay from, as I am having trouble sourcing it. The second question is how much did you use? So here are the answers:
My original plan was to get the clay from a local building site, but I wanted to feel confident that the clay would not crack after several burns. So I decided to buy my clay, and I went for the classic red clay. I managed to get this from my children’s school. It was delivered to the school and I just went and picked it up.
There is a good chance that you do not have the same contacts, but you might be able to buy it direct from them. Here is their website, and just search for clay:
I paid around £4.50 a bag and used around 7 bags. Some people recommend using crank clay, but I went for plain red clay and then worked lots of sharp sand into it. I am glad I went with this option, as when I dismantled the oven, the
inner clay core was in perfect condition. Checkout my video below:
Also note that this is kiln clay and not air dry clay. I hope that answers all the questions, but if not let me know.
I was contacted by john who got his clay from the following company, they even sell a pizza oven mix. Saying that his first oven cracked, so he soaked it and mixed in a lot of sand, and now things are looking good.
Well what can I say?
