    Found one one CL, it seems to be an older model horizontal style.  How can you tell if they are the pre char broil models?

    Mine has a name badge that says New Braunfels. The smoker is very heavy for it's size. It looks EXACTLY like the NBBD pictures you see online. I would guess the only real way to tell is the name plate.

    The newer New Braunfuls seem to be made of heavy sheet metal

     I had the older one and like rick said .the older ones are alot heavier.

     They were made of rolled steel.

     The closest thing i can find to the older NB is the oklahoma Joe smoker.

    available at acadamey sports. heavy steel w/ steel wheels and if i remember right $699
