It seems that their website has been down for some time now. Their galvanized tubs are great for ash collection. I believe that the original tub that came with my AHS was a Dover Parkersburg tub.

Seems they closed up shop a few years back?

Wow, in business since 1833, and the 2008 downturn did them in by 2009.

At least Behren's galvanized tubs are still available, but they are round rather than square.

Round tubs work just fine, especially if that is all you can acquire. I have noticed that many of the new tubs have handles that the spot welds break almost instantly. I now drill and bolt the damned things BEFORE using. DO NOT use self tapper screws and leave the sharp ends inside the bucket. The skin you lose may be your own.
