Tandoori Chicken

Saffron Rice

  • Remove the skin from the chicken and trim any excess fat. Make some shallow incisions in the meaty part of the thigh and drumstick.
  • Combine ingredients for marinade 1 and thoroughly coat chicken. Allow to marinate in a covered bowl under refrigeration for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Combine ingredients for marinade 2 and thoroughly coat chicken. Allow to marinate in a covered bowl under refrigeration for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • Prep the Ozpig and Oven Smoker for medium high heat. We’re looking for a steady 210 - 220°C.
  • Remove any excessive marinade from the chicken. Place chicken directly on oven racks, taking care not to over crowd the chicken to allow for air circulation, 2 pieces per rack. Position racks in the oven smoker.
  • Allow to cook at 210°C for around 35 minutes or until the thickest piece of meat has reached an internal temperature of 75°C. Thurn the chicken over after around 20 mins to allow for even cooking.
  • Remove from the Oven Smoker and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving with Saffron Rice, Kachumber Salad, Green Chilli Chutney, Raita and Naan.
  • Prep the Ozpig for medium high heat.
  • Rinse rice 3 to 4 times or until starch is removed and water runs almost clear then drain very well.
  • Heat ghee in a saucepan, add spices (except saffron) and allow to cook for a few minutes until spices start to crackle and become fragrant.
  • Add rice and stir well to ensure all rice grains are coated with melted ghee.
  • Add water, saffron and salt then stir. Cover the pan and allow to cook for around 12 minutes then reposition the pan on the warming plate until required.
  • Fork or fluff the rice and serve garnished with chopped coriander leaves.

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Series 2 - a genuine belter!

Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.

Big pig - loving it

We love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best
