Cheap mystery coating on the wire, plastic on the handles.
I sure wouldn't try it.

Risk... Me, I'm just not in to it... Easy enough to build your own, and I'm not Mr. Builder...

I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Can't imagine that is galvanized. As long as you get the blue crap off I'd consider doing a burn on it first. Get her good and hot for a while and you should be good to go after....

I would put a load of coals in there and fire it up before I ever used it with food. If there is any kind of weird smoke coming off of it or any oders then I would not use it.

To be honest, if it were me, I would drag that basket to the end of the driveway and chuck it in the trash.

It's not going to be a long term solution because the hot coals are going to burn right through those thin wires.

I agree just build your own out of expanded metal. Not worth a risk.

Looks to be Aluminized steel to me, like an OLD SMOKEY, slice the Blue crap off it. Bolt a Pizza pan to the bottom and get cooking.

You might want to drip a drop of concentrated acid of some kind on the metal and see if the coating dissolves; thereby indicating galvanized. If so, you might take it to a plating shop and have them soak it in acid for a while to remove it all.
