What’s in Jerry’s Case?

jerry gillJerry Gill is our in-house superhero. He came to work for American Spoon six years ago and is responsible for maintaining all of our buildings and equipment. Jerry keeps our entire operation running smoothly, and when something doesn’t work, he fixes it. Jerry can fix anything, and he does it all with a spirit of goodwill.

A Petoskey native, Jerry now makes his home along the Sturgeon River with his high school sweetheart, Rokki. He does bear a resemblance to Santa Claus, and last Christmas he delighted Rokki’s nephews by donning a red suit and delivering toys. Throughout the winter, he and his son bundle up and ride snowmobiles to work. It adds about fifteen minutes to the trip, but Jerry loves being out on the trail. No one else is around and he’s always amazed by the variety of wildlife he sees as he rides through the snowy woods.

At home, Jerry grills year-round–even in winter, and he likes to create something new every time he barbecues. Here are the 12 staples you’ll almost always find in his pantry.
