Unless you’re a seriously dedicated Indian food enthusiast, you probably don’t have a tandoor (an urn-shaped clay vessel somewhere between an oven and a barbecue pit). But that doesn’t mean you can’t make deliciously tangy, smoky, tandoori-inspired foods on your home grill. Here, F&W’s best ways to approximate incredible tandoori dishes.

2. Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks with Cilantro-Shallot Relish
This chicken has the best skin: It’s nicely spiced and super-crispy.
