Call both UPS and Cabelas.. they don't send them out that way.. UPS has damaged many a CS and, to my knowledge.. they were replaced.
The boxes for both my 008 and AQ were heavily damaged.. I was really paranoid about the AQ being damaged.. however.. both were OK... well almost.. the AQ had one slight tweek that I could fix. Cookshack makes one heck of a good smoker.. but two things they don't do well, IMO.. is racks and packaging. There was very little packaging around either of my smokers.
Do yourself a favor.. If you want one that looks as good as it cooks, call UPS.. I hope you saved the box..
