He also makes and sells pizzas out of an alley to raise money for community organizations working to make Chicago a better place to live. He's the author of ManBQue: Meat. Beer. Rock&Roll. and Eat Street, as well as a contributor to The Chicago Food Encyclopedia. He's cooked in bowling alleys, arcades, and abandoned convents.
