Thanks all for your responses.
Boy there sure isn't much on the internet about these, so I trust it has been out of production for a spell. This one looked ok, shape wise, but it does not appear to be thick steel from the old NB days.
Will I be successfull using as a stick burner, or would you recommend I build a basket and do the charcoal minion method. If that is the case, I may just stick with my UDS and weber kettles.
Thanks again. Decisions Decisions.
