Title: Found Somewhere in Mexico
Post by: Quickj on March 19, 2021, 11:45:48 am
I posted this on SmokStak several years ago, but this is a good place for it also.

I was down in Mexico touring a tequila distillery and found this dumped next to the parking lot.

And maybe the original boiler.

Who Knows,  This may still be sitting there?

Unfortunately, these artifacts do not find the appreciation they deserve everywhere. After all, they are part of industry and also part of agricultural history. All around the world!

It wouldn't fit into my suitcase.  :(

It is an exact match for the one my friend Wes has.  Except his is the mirror opposite.
