My new 30" MES with remote arrived yesterday from Sears. They shipped it UPS. I think the UPS dude was mad about something because he was throwing things around in the back of his truck, one of the items being m Masterbuilt Smoker. I asked him to pull up the street a few yards so he could put the box in m garage. He almost peeled out moving the 20 yards to the driveway. Banged the box around a bit more before getting it out and carrying it to the garage. The box had a tear in it and looked beat up when I opened it up. The contents seemed fine after getting everything out. The only concern I have is that the electronics might have been damaged, but I haven't plugged it in yet to check. After assembling it, I noticed the back.
Mine has a piece of sheet metal covering the back that's attached with rivets. The riveting job isn't the best in the world, and there's one rivet near the top left side that's pulled out and not even holding. I'm wondering if this is typical or if I should call Sears and have them bring a replacement.
Any suggestions? I don't know that the pulled rivet would be a problem. Let me know what you guys think.
I hate to season it if it needs to be replaced.
