Grillin’ with the Monks?
The gray-robed monks in the St. Ambrose Retreat House on Long Island’s Gold Coast have become well known for their barbecuing prowess. They have written a book on barbecuing, host their own weekly BBQ television show, and offer their own line of barbecuing tools and utensils. For fundraisers, parties and other special events, having an event at St. Ambrose, hosted by Grillin’ with the Monks, has become a very fashionable thing to do.

By the way, Jesus was a carpenter, right?
The Institute for Justice has taken up the monks' cause in court.
