Tandoor Pot supplied by : www.Hometandoor.com by GOLDEN TANDOORS
Execution : Patrick Worrel
Site: NJ USA
The clay tandoor was bought online from www.hometandoor.com I am grateful to Rajiv Saheb of Golden Tandoors for his guidance and advice through this project. We engaged Patrick Worrell (845 891 8309) to put it together for us.
The concrete slab is laid. Existing sprinkler lines are re-routed. Blocks and bricks are being placed with rebar’s to add strength.
The tandoori is in place above a layer of fire bricks. Rajiv Saheb advised us to cut an opening in the bottom of the tandoori.
The brick enclosure is complete. Holes are drilled to accommodate pyrometer probe through metal tubes. Electrical wires brought in prep for lighting
A bluestone slab is being carted in. The plywood sheet was used as a template to cut a hole for the tandoor mouth.
6 x 2 cu ft bags of perlite were poured between the clay pot and the brick wall before the slab was put in place. This will keep the brick wall cool to touch when the tandoor is fired. Almost there!
First full scale firing. A sliding door at the bottom regulates air flow to the tandoor.
With covers in place and air vent regulated, the temperature shoots up to more than 1200 F
