I am probably the most blue collar priest around. Most of my peers work as hospital and nursing home chaplains or some other sort of white collar chaplaincy. My trade is that of a butcher. I served an apprenticeship many years ago in my home state of Ohio and learned the trade right well. I have worked in grocery stores, slaughter houses, and even a Mexican butcher shop. If you come to my house I will make you some smoky chicken or ribs. Ribs are my personal favorite. I do not discriminate; any rib is a good rib if smoked properly: pork, beef, goat, lamb. . .
