Wilfork to retire: pursue his other passion: smoked meats

pjcas18 : 8/7/2017 2:38 pm


Wilfork is a spokesman for Kingsford and has been in a bunch of commercials. He's hanging up his cleats for his overalls.

I only even mention this because I've met Wilfork a couple times. When he was with the Patriots he hosted a draft day party in my town for his charity at a local bowling alley/arcade/laser tag place.

He and his wife are two truly nice people, approachable, friendly and he gave me some good natured ribbing (pun intended) when I wore a Giants hat to the party in 2008.

I hope he comes back to MA and opens a barbecue place, I can almost guarantee he'll have very high quality barbecue.

I was pissed at him for the phantom hold in XLVI on Boothe, but game went our way, so I'll let him off the hook
Wilfork was man enough to admit to the ref that was a bad call

Even after the fact not many dudes would do that

He should definitely wear a shirt under those overalls.

However, if I ever get a chance to sample his BBQ, I'll be all over it. Smoking meats is the finest of culinary endeavors, IMO, and I welcome any and all who share in this passion.
He also took a shot at Jacobs eyes

Fuck him.
Your prediction: Will he retire and slim down like Strahan & Diehl,

or will he balloon in weight like former QB Jared Lorenzen
Ribs?

I don't think we'll see his ribs any time soon.

Given his choice of profession/hobby post football I'm not betting on a Strahan/Snee shrinkage in his future.

Heck Strahan shrunk during his playing days, what was he 250 during his final years? Down from close to 290?

Wilfork was probably listed at 330 but closer to 400 during his playing days.

It was a grill masters grill off.
Hey, the gf made me watch.... well, it was on. Not sure how much I was watching
Ribs?

Watch "What the Health?" and "Cowspiracy."
Something tells me

that Wilfork will use the finger probe method to check his meats for doneness.
