Tee Time: “I’ve become quite the man of the links. During the slow season, I golf once or twice a week. I’m a horrible golfer, but I enjoy it.”
Dusty Ducatis: “I’ve got two very expensive Italian motorcycles that sit in my shed and drip oil. I used to ride a lot more and do a yearly trip to the mountains with friends.”
Old Rusty: “I’ve always loved my Oklahoma Joe grill—you can smoke and grill on it. It’s all cast iron and rusty as hell.”
Penchant for Pans: “I love my cast-iron collection. I have some vintage pieces and a few Smitheys of various sizes.”
Feline Friends: “I have three cats. We were just adopted by this little feral guy we call Vader. And there’s Zeedo and Brisket, who came from Home Team BBQ.”
