Bought this awhile back at a swap meet cause it looked cool. Still donít know how to use it. It has a wood handle so donít think it can be used safely on a BBQ. Itís a Wagner Ware Sidney. O. 1350

I never saw that before. I looked up this CI and found it is a Wagner Ware Broiler  NO. 1350. Circa early 1900ís.  Nice save! One on eBay now...

Wife said "No more GRILLS in this house!" So I bought a 2nd house!

Thanks for the info. Havenít seen anything on the internet to know how it was used. The wood handle is what makes it confusing since the ďbroilerĒ canít be used in an oven.

I have a couple of more current pieces and just recently got a Favorite Piqua skillet from my mom. I have a lot of restoring to do. Also found a lodge Dutch oven in really good shape. No lid though.

If you can't find a nice Wagner, just do yourself a favor and get a Field Skillet. It's the one Kent Rollins uses the most in his videos and he has them all.

Booooo.  I now have light weight glass smooth vintage and I have modern lodge. They both work great but I lean towards my heavier modern lodge. The heat retention is better and they are every bit as non-stick.

Just giving you a hard time mike. Iím sure most would agree with you.

Just my opinion and I certainly wouldnít mind having a field skillet. They look very well made.

Maybe it was to be used on an old wood stove on one of the eyes?  That way it would work similar to a grill with direct exposure to the fire while the handle part is protected?  Just a guess.

A local Goodwill runs a weekly silent auction for some of the more valuable stuff it brings in. I won this Griswold dutch oven yesterday. It's a #8 size, around 5 or 6 quarts. Good size for chili or beans on the grill. Nice and flat, and in pretty good shape overall. Might want to restore at some point, but no hurry.

I have that same Dutch oven. A modern lodge lid will fit it.

Thanks HoosierKettle.  I was hoping that would be the case. Do you know what size lid I should order?

Almost looks like the bars are for freeze run off possibly. Very neat.
