Hi, it's been a while since your post. How do you like the Volta?

I definitely need to post an update. The short answer is that the Volta is awesome! A few quick things - the pieces did not fit together as tightly as I would have expected - the seams all overlap (lap fit) but they don't overlap/lock completely. other than that the quality is good. Drying the oven took just a few small fires - no fresh mortar so not much water....the oven takes less than 2 hrs to get up to temp and it holds heat very well. I have done close to 40 pizzas at a party and had no trouble keeping the deck at 600-700 and the dome pushing 900-1000. There seems to be plenty of mass above and below. Getting to temp takes 5-8pcs of split wood total and then another 4-6 pieces to keep a fire going for 2-3 hrs of cooking. I will post up completed pics and a more complete write up soon. All in all the price was great for the Volta and I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Did I mention that I love the pizza???
