wont the egg accomplish the same thing?
The Egg is a brick oven.
I have had a printed copy of their plans for a few years and read hundreds of their posts. I would love to build one as well. Just have not made that leap. Be sure to read up on their cheater tool.Good luck and share lots of pics.
I hear you. I have three eggs but still want to build a tandoor :DWhy would you want to build a tandoor when you can often get one for cheap? I bought mine for $400.
@1310monster: because tandoors are generally not available for that price. I built mine for about $300 or less, but have never seen one for $400 in Chicago, Iowa, or Texas. Which is why I built my own. You're lucky to be able to get them at that price!
@Caliking... I'm Indian, so it's allowed....
I didn't know you were native American. I'm part Cherokee.
I haven't gone hotter than about 1100 on purpose and I did this with a wok and sand. I wasn't able to achieve the blue flames I have seen in your pictures. But even if I could I imagine I will only get 1 pizza before temps fluctuate. Not to mention the fact that its about $15 bucks worth of lump just to achieve that 53 second slot that I might miss.I don't use store bought dough and I am quite sure I have my dough where I want it for what I am trying to make. It is on the soupier side of the dough spectrum.
