I am 37yrs old 6'2 216lbs and i've been lifting my butt off but having hard time to gain weight. I have a very physical job which makes it tough to keep weight on. Any advice on what to do. I just want to get to 225-230 where i used to be.

Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial
are you tracking what you eat? the easy answer is to eat more. are you skipping meals?

In addition to what they are saying, you might want to cut back on your volume for a bit. If you have a physical job, and are killing yourself in the gym, you might be overdoing it.
Can't find time to eat more? Add half/gal of whole milk per day.
Eat more or move less.

Another good way to gain weight is to eat immediately before bed (tall glass of milk, etc.).
Adding some olive oil to stuff is a great way to add calories. Just don't add too much too soon, as you'll be crapping out more that you're taking in.

Whats a good protein powder to take? I just got introduced to syntha 6 and it tastes great but has 60mg of cholesterol per scoop...
Track what you eat. Add more to it while continuing to track to be assured you are accurate. Going off "feel" will never work in a situation like this.

Just an update that i used all the advice i was given and its workin. I'm killin the milk and found out that oatmeal can be eaten w/o bein cooked. Couple handfuls throughout the day chased w/ milk or water is quick and filling. The scale is moving upward. Thanks.
You should have some foods like chicken breast and cheese also along with your meal and increase your meal on daily basis... I think that you should have some rice and also some nutritious foods also..... That would help you more.....
