Don't you have to have some kind of special clay pot? Saw this on a cooking show some time back.

You can make quite serviceable tandoori on a grill or with a broiler, although I think you're right that a clay pot is traditional. This is the one I use on the grill:

Thank you for that kevincad. I'm going to try this as there is an Indian market not too far from my work that carries the spices. I got to liking tandoori having to spend a good deal of time in the UK. I even got used to curry and ate that often. There are so many good Indian eateries here in North Austin one seldom thinks of making it at home but I intend to attempt this.

Here's a piece from Serious Eats on doing it using a grill.

I've grown to really love Indian food! I thought curry was curry until I found out the different curries.

I've stolen the trick of making the slices in the chicken with a knife for my jerked chicken; I've even received compliments from Jamaicans about it (based on advice from Jamaican restaurants, I just use Walker's Wood in a plastic bag with the chicken for marination).
 
A number of years back, my wife bought me a "tandoor" from Williams-Sonoma; I can't even find it anymore. It was kind of like a tagine; it made for an interesting texture to the chicken (firmer but still tender). I asked barbecue author Steve Raichlen about using it to make tandoori chicken by putting it into a kettle grill; he suggested just cooking the chicken using the indirect method in a kettle grill. I use oak chips; it does get good results.
