I don't know if anyone else has experience with one of these, but I just set this one up today. It's not much bigger than a backyard grill, but will fit a couple of loaves of bread at a time (22 inch internal circumference). It has to have a couple of seasoning fires, but I hope to use it this weekend and will let you know how it works for me. Has anyone tried anything similar? Any advise or suggestions? Oh, I bought it at Alfrescoimports.com. They are in California and I am in Connecticut. We had some shipping problems and they have been wonderful!
