Kamado Joe Jr...Shipped... Looks like crap

I just received one, ordered from Walmart, and it looks much nicer than that.  I have one flaw on the inside corner of the draft door.  I have some paint from another grill I will use to touch that up.  I did receive the unit left at the foot of my driveway by FedEx Ground.  Upside down with footprints all over the outer packaging.  It did not inspire confidence, no knock on KJ or Walmart, it was all FedEx sloppy handling.   The unit was packed very well (luckily) and other than the 20 minutes it took me to unwrap the plastic from the cast iron base, a breeze to setup.  Now onto building a proper table for it.

I also just got my jr last week from Walmart ($299 Black Friday!). It looked pretty good overall, though there looks to be a slight black smoke looking spot on the exterior. Doesn’t bother me at all. 

fedex left it in my doorstep, one of the top wood frame pieces was cracked but inside packaged well and no damage. 

getting the wrap off the base was such a pain!!!  There must be a better solution lol
