Turkmenistan Mud Oven (Tandoor). Note the branding. Photo by Ekahau

Excellent video of tandoor bread baking. Very, very atmospheric.

And still another video of tandoor baking. Sometimes you see two, long metal chop sticks ( I have no idea what they're called) inserted into the oven to remove the bread, but in this video, the baker stabs the bread to remove it with one hooked chop stick. Watch and listen to the woman slapping the dough. It's done the very same way in Guatemala except in Guatemala they're using corn masa. In a previous post you can see a Guatemalan making tortillas.
