So as i wrote a few weeks ago i got a smashing steal on my OKJ 1060 LH smoker from lowes. THe box was beat to sh!t, and the manager said it has been sitting in storage since he started working there a few years ago, he sold it to me for $321, Lowes cost. (Usually 430$)
The thermometer needle was busted, so i called them, and Charbroil didnt have the Serial # on file. After 20-30 mins on hold, they told me they would be unable to warranty the grill because from the model number they can tell it's an 2012 model. I needed to mail them proof of purchase to get my warranty started, which i did.
The woman thought i was reading the number wrong so i took a picture of it and sent it to her. She said the serial number doesnt make sense nor did the lot number, thats not how they do their numbers at charbroil. She also pointed out that she thought it was odd there wasnt any charbroil logos on the box.
Did i accidently land myself a true OKJ?!? What year did CB take over? What do the newer boxes look like?
I'm not going to get excited until someone can tell me wth is going on, because charbroil cant.
