It's also known as a Tandoor. And chicken that comes out of if is called Tandoori Chicken.

A true Indian would know that.

Except he ain't a cooking up chicken.

Edit - JB grabs glasses, he is, it's the beef thing I was referring to.

The tandoor's I've seen online look different, though similar enough I suppose. I think I've only seen them being available in the US for ~$800 - $900. I haven't looked for one in quite a while.

If you're looking for a proper tandoori, they're made of earth.

Do you have any vegan, gluten-free food?

Gonna be doing some backpacking, two or three night trips, and the wife and I will be visiting kids and families that are now scattered from the west to east coast. The son and I will be going to a four game series of Atlanta Braves baseball games in Atlanta this summer. Rocky Mountain Audio Fest this Fall. Going to stay busy.

Seems that retirees usually end up busier. At least it is often a good busier.
