Editorial Reviews

About the Author

John Carruthers is the managing editor of ManBQue.com, and a writer/editor for a Chicago-based national physicians’ organization. When he’s not testing recipes, writing about food, or talking loudly to others, he’s generally at a bar just down the road. He currently lives in Chicago with his wife, their gigantic grill, and a cat that acts like a dog.

Jesse Valenciana is the founder of ManBQue and spends his days expanding the ManBQue empire and converting others to the cause via (symbolic) meat baptism. He serves as the public face of ManBQue and works his magic not just on the grill, but in convincing people to open their grills, homes, and bathrooms to 50 or 60 people on weekday nights for MEATings. He lives in Chicago.

PROS:

- The book has really vivid pictures, which makes following the recipes easier when you've been eating rum ham in the sun all day.
- After receiving this book in the mail, I grew 4 inches taller.
- David Lee Roth is a regular at most Man-B-Que events, although he's usually asked to leave within a few hours.

CONS:

- NOT recommended for people in relationships, as the food you make will be so impressive that members of the opposite sex will not stop until they can have you for themselves.
- David Lee Roth may show up at your house unexpectedly. And he'll expect YOU to have drugs on hand. What is this, 1984?

I cannot recommend this book enough. Once you master all of these delicious meat creations, maybe...MAYBE...you can have your picture in this book eating a chicken wing.

Today I came home and my wife's copy of Cosmopolitan magazine was pregnant. I don't understand the physics of it, but damn if that magazine ain't showing a baby bump. I'd hesitate a guess and say its nearly 2nd trimester.

If there was some way to take all the macho out of the three EXPENDABLES movies and somehow make that into a cookbook that book would get its lunch money stolen and then would be stuffed into a locker by this one.

I am pretty sure that the day this book arrived at my door it wasn't delivered by some sullen UPS/FED EX guy, but drove itself to my door in a chromed out classic Z28 Camaro with T-Tops and some Skynard blaring.

If this book somehow took on human form it would turn me gay. No Homo.

I saw a fortune teller yesterday and she told me that this book saves my life in a future war. Apparently the book throws itself on a hand grenade that falls into our foxhole. Apparently I take the last few remaining pages and throw them into the sea like the end of Top Gun. I'm oddly looking forward to it.

I'm pretty sure this book slipped the poison into King Joffery's Wedding Cup.

My wife's car got a flat while driving home. This book jacked up the car and changed the tire. Then cooked her a 3 course meal, and read my kids a bedtime story.

Legend has it that this book beat Teddy Roosevelt in a boxing match.

This book is the literary incarnation of "Truck Nuts".

Needless to say I love this book.

I've been to New York and I've been to Cleveland.
I've seen Niagara Falls and I've seen the boundary waters of the Mississippi.
My lips have tasted Westvleteren 12 and they have also tasted Old Milwaukee Light.
I've eaten food made from this cookbook and have eaten food made at Wendy's.

Buy this cookbook. Don't eat at Wendy's.

I love this cookbook. Its like a step by step guide for become a man.

Pros: great recipes, thicker mustache and beard, women find me more interesting.

Cons: I get into bar fights constantly and I can't get people to leave my house at a reasonable time.

I've been friends with the author since High School. He's a great guy that is hilarious, works hard, and deserves success.

Even if I didn't know him personally I would love this book.

ManBQue is laugh out loud funny and can be enjoyed even without stepping near a grill, but don't do that. Get near a grill 'cause every recipe I've made from this book has been freaking delicious and BLOWS PEOPLES MINDS. Most of the recipes take a fair amount of prep and shopping time but can be dumbed down if you want to save time. It is all worth it though because everything I've made from this book has gotten a HOLY LORD THIS IS DELICIOUS response. This book steps well outside of any cookie-cutter recipe book and is definitely worth it. High quality product from a good person at a good price. Get it.

First off - this isn't your everyday cookbook - this is a cookbook built by men, for men. If you aren't a man, no worries after reading this book you will be! This incredible book has a little bit of everything in it but what really sets it apart is the attention to detail. Never are you left questioning... Well how do I do that?? They answer every question before you think of it. This is truly the grilling bible every man should own.

Get one for yourself. Get one for your family members. Tell your friends to buy their own!

MANBQUE!

I bought this at Barnes & Noble because I'm too impatient for shipping sometimes and too forgetful for pre-orders. Not disappointed. This book has lots of lovely photography and recipes I look forward to attempting and failing. Recipes run the gamut from smart twists on the familiar to, well, pig tongue. The writing has a warm candor throughout that sets ManBQue apart from other grilling books, which often come off as stodgy and technical. All-in-all, much bang for the buck. Cheers.
