No sir, not at all. But a few items were omitted. Stainless hooks, heavy duty neat design charcoal basket, grill, hook tool, and a horshoe base so the PBC is off the ground. Oh and I forgot, a business card with the owners personal email and phone number. And having emailed and spoken to him on the phone, they are good contacts. I decided, for me, supporting the troops and buying American and getting a cool smoker/grill in the process was neat.
