Thighs and breasts were marinated overnight in yogurt/lemon marinade and skewered.Lemons hold the meat away from the coals.Our first time doing this.The flavors were incredible.

    it appears you didn't place an upside down flower pot in the bottom of the egg. Did the skewers remain in place?

    The product looks yummy. It was the tandoori menu in her book that convinced me to purchase it. I haven't tried it yet.

    Jon, very interesting setup. I have the same SS skewers but haven't tried using them for tandoori. I'd experimented with hanging the chicken with S-hook from the AR but it didn't work out too well. Few months ago I bought a pair of approx 3-ft long 1/2"x1/2" square iron rods from an Indian market, planning to try tandoori with a small platesetter at the bottom to deflect the heat...will need to somehow get the end of the rods stick out through the top vent hole.

    KB & Canugghead,
    I tried the flower pot but the one I had was too big.
    Next time I'm going to use the original fire grate( not the turbo) and put the Daisy wheel in the bottom with lump all around and put the skewers in the daisy slots.It was abit challenging to try to place the skewers on the turbo grate.They wanted to slide down through the slots.Practice practice!.
    I love that recipe.So moist inside.
  • That looks Great
