Would rather not ruin it.
It is just a carrier. If you put the whole thing on the grill/stove it would take a very long time for any heat to reach the coals and then probably not enough to light them. More than likely you would end up damaging the coal carrier. If the handle is metal you would not be able to grip it, wood will ignite and plastic will melt. I assume it's like most other coal carriers and punched from sheet metal entirely.
