Dude Makes a Homemade Tandoor Oven Out of His Garbage Can
Simon Braud is a Louisiana fitness coach and Indian food lover, as well as a handy dude who loves to cook. "I've been into Indian food lately," he said, "and I think it's so cool when they take the naan and smack it on the side of the tandoor oven, and so I said 'I'm going to make my own.'"
Simon's DIY tandoor oven has earned 2.3 million views on TikTok, and many more across other platforms. Some tweets have even suggested that he is Twitter's main character of the week. With Simon's easygoing southern demeanor, it's easy to see why. "Bro is speaking in Forest Gump," said the video's top comment.
Simon followed up his DIY tutorial with an attempt at making naan in his new oven. While it wasn't a disaster, it didn't go quite as well as his oven construction. "Tandoor-making skills 10/10. Naan dough skills 1/10" one person commented. But Simon is determined to learn and try again. At the very least, he got some great puns. "That's naan-sense!"
