I am looking for old half/quarter and eighth barrels. They are mostly from the 1960/70's. Anyone know where I can buy some?

I actually ended up purchasing one like the picture from a flea market down the road. I cut open the top and am still trying to decide if I want to use it or not. I'll have to bang on the bottom and have someone weld a spot on the side, but I don't see any reason why they wouldn't work for boiling in, and I could use a bigger boil kettle.
Day after day, it reappears. Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear. Ghosts appear and fade away. Come back another day.

i have one of those pots that i use for a HLT. i have a thermometer and sight gauge drilled into it, and after multiple boils havent had any off flavors or any part of that coating come off.

i was a little worried at the beginning as well, but haven't had any issues yet.
Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, but it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and bitch-slap that mother F@&!*! upside the head
