This oven is built very solid, I appreciate the 304 stainless steel quality.
I did contact customer service about tips to use the oven and the size of the stone. It turns out that the stone I received is not quite wide enough and they are shipping a replacement tomorrow! As it turns out, they said I could use the current stone and that it would work for tonight's pizza party (which it did).
I successfully used the Cru 30 for the first time tonight. I used hardwood charcoal, apple wood chips, and some chunks of pecan. Once I got the fire going it was time to add pizzas. I was able to do small pizzas in turning them every 20 to 30 seconds once it was up to temperature (700-900 degrees).
It's going to be a lot of fun learning and perfecting pizza with the Cru 30. I am completely satisfied with my purchase, and I'm looking forward to many fun evenings making pizza (and other food items) in this quality outdoor wood fired oven.
