Project: Tandoori

A friend of ours was mentioning how neat it would be to have a cook space outdoors in the summer, pretty tough for me to argue with that. Summertime is short and sweet in Edmonton, we’ve got to make the most of it. So I did some searching on kijiji for: bricks (to build an outdoor oven?), fire bricks: (will withstand the heat created by said oven without cracking), outdoor oven, outdoor kitchen and finally “clay oven”…. success!    well… kinda. The ad read: “Tandoori clay oven, need gone immediately! call after 4:30.  The ad didn’t mention: left outside, needs new clay, weighs atleast 200lbs., move it yourself. This I discovered soon enough and phoned a friend with a truck to help out…. The future of our outdoor cooking now awaits some refurbishing- clean-up, new clay, new glaze……. should be a fun summer project with the promise of fresh, homemade naan bread to keep me motivated.
