Anyone happen to catch "How it's Made" on the Discovey Channel this weekend? They were at the Weber factory showing how they make Weber grills... pretty cool.

I can't seem to find the next air date for that episode but if you happen to catch it....post up

I've seen it a couple of times. Watch it with the kids... They seem to run a marathon of those shows from time to time. I'm sure it will air again.

I used to be in their factory in Palatine IL at least once a month to service miscelaneous office equipment. Pretty neat actually. but not as neat as the "jelly Belly" factory that was in North Chicago "Goelitz confectionary"

the culligan water softener factory was pretty neat too.

Missed the show, but I like that series a lot! Not bad for a company that started out in the Bouy Business! Very Happy

We visited the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield? Ca. a year or so back with my sister's family. Very cool!

I used to build machinery for the food business, and miss tinkering with all the equipment at times..........................

My favorite factory was the Budweiser plant in Williamsburg, VA. Before 9-11, you could take a tour and get free samples.

Along those lines the Jameson Distillery tour in Ireland has nice little sampling at the end or their tour too... You get to taste test a variety of Irish Whiskeys along with a few Scotches and American bourbons as well... I left that tour feeling mighty fine I tell ya!
