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.
