Employee Spotlight: Tim Andrews

Many of our customers know service advisor Tim Andrews (aka Grill Man) as the man who hands over the keys when their car is ready. Tim is an ASE L1 Master Automotive technician and a longtime member of the Wheeling Auto Center family. In fact, he’s been part of our team for 18 years.

Tim grew up on Chicago’s northwest side, where he met his high school sweetheart Justine. As he puts it, they’ll celebrate 28 happy years of marriage in June.

When he’s not on the job, Tim is a grillmaster for family and friends. One of our technicians got him interested a few years ago, and he’s been firing up the grill every weekend since. Tim grills all kinds of meats, but his favorites are Texas-style pulled pork and smoked pork ribs.

He’s always experimenting with new sauce types and flavors. For Tim, there’s no temp too cold to grill or smoke—he even did a sub-zero Superbowl cookout.

For those getting into serious grilling, he recommends Green Eggs and RecTeq, his favorite—for easy set-it-and-forget-it smoking. He also loves firing up his Weber and using a skillet on the grate.

Tim’s dream car is a Tesla Model S—he’s worked with Tesla and knows the performance and safety features.

Next time you see Tim, ask him what he’s grilling this weekend!
