    I would go with # 8 just cuz it sounds cool


      Amazon is getting so bad. They have screwed up several of my orders of late. We are within 5 miles of of two gigantic Amazon warehouse distribution centers. Their trucks are in my neighborhood daily. Yet their service seems to be steadily going down hill. It's almost as bad (but thank gawd not quite as) the USPS. Still the most convenient option out there but I just had to rant a little.

      I'd send it back IF it was ordered through Prime and you have free return. I know your itching to make those pies but screw them.


        My wife ordered some clothes from Amazon. They arrived and didn’t fit so she asked me to handle the return since it’s my account. Well, I went through with the refund and found out that while Amazon was the market place she bought them from, the seller was not Amazon. Anyway once I initiated the return the seller reached out to me. The clothes weren’t eligible for free returns and I’d have to pay to send them back to China. They did refund the balance minus the shipping charges. So my advice is to reach out to the seller and start from there.

          Get a Prime membership and use the Prime Wardrobe feature to "try before you buy". Avoid buying from third party sellers, especially if you can't verify their country of origin.

        #1 But also contact Amazon since it is showing that it ships from them.


          This is like a Dear Abby column, the advice keeps pourin in.
          I also think it will be a chore tallying up the votes.


            Return it to Amazon and post a review of the product complaining about the company. The company will likely contact you and work harder to provide what you ordered.


              Take it as a sign by the Gods and send it back. I don't think the thing will work well and you have dodged wasting you money.


                I’d return it as well. Nice to get a new toy, but if it’s not what you wanted, 2 or 3 months down the road you’ll end up regretting settling. Don’t ask how I know!


                  I’ll pile on too. Send it back. Amazon has been doing this a lot lately. I got my Amazon account in 1995 when it was primarily a book store, and then signed up for Prime when it was first announce. Decades went by and I had no real complaints until recently, especially with items ordered not being what was delivered, or items delivered that were obviously previously returned and then resold. The have to do a much better job policing their marketplace sellers. I went from no refund requests in years to 3 so far this month.


                    Ask for your money back. They will ask you to box it up and send it back. Tell them no, you are happy to return it but are not going to do their job. They will probably tell you to keep it and send you the new one anyway.

                    If they arrive to take it back, thank them and give it back. Then you will get the one you originally wanted anyway. If they don't keep it and use it in the meanwhile, donate it to a church, fire or police dept, boys and girls club, they could all use it.


                      Only one reasonable and smart option and that is send it back as suggested in option #1


                        Good luck, that is a problem with online ordering.
                        I'm of the opinion if the company doesn't have exactly what you ordered they shipped the next closest thing


                          Did you fill out the return webpage on Amazon to see what the return directions are?

                          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
