TCC: What are your special interests?

Neil: I would consider myself an amateur chef. Being an only child living in Michigan, I spent many of my childhood snow days learning to cook with my mom. Now, I am the chef of the house and feed my kids and grandkids on a regular basis.  Smoking meats and creating recipes with my Instapot are my love for today. Feel free to check out my Pinterest page for recipes I have created or collected! I also enjoy Bowling, Motorcycle riding (Touring Bikes) and watching movies.
