Hey BB, Saws and had to respond. I have a NewBraubsfeld 'Red River' ,not exactly like what you found, but close. Got mine 15 years ago and it's still in Class "A" shape. Metal is 3/16" and sturdy as everything. The NB Hondo and the OK Joe Smokers are of like material and will last you a long time (unlike the SP you had).LOL
The price seems good, and you'd likely not get a better price on either of them.My opinion is to do what you can to get one,can't go wrong. and for a small sticker, HEY -perfect
Here's a shot of my "Little Girl" :
notice I have Modded to reverse flow and she pleases the heck out of me.
And between her and her 'BIG' Sister , I can do about anything I want...
Hope this helps make your mind up,
good luck and SMOKE HAPPY
