John Carruthers, Jesse Valenciana, John Scholl

John Carruthers is a writer, editor, and 2014 graduate of Hot Dog University. Yes, that’s a real thing. His thoughts on meat, and the cooking and eating thereof, have appeared in Serious Eats, Thrillist, The Big Lead, and the upcoming Food City from the University of Illinois Press. He and his wife live in Chicago, because you can get a decent taco there at any hour. @UTChicago

John Scholl is a founding member of ManBQue. When he’s not at his day job in advertising, he’s cooking or brewing beer. He also travels with his family, searching for great food and beer. He lives in Chicago with his wife, two kids, and dog. @SchollBeers

Jesse Valenciana is the founder of ManBQue and lifelong Chicagoan. Aside from contributing his sports related sarcasm to a local newspaper, he gets paid to travel the country for a beer company and has his pig-dog Gus tattooed on his arm. That’s called living the dream. @jessemanbque

Philly Cheesesteak

This is the real deal sandwich from South Philly that’s had everyone talking for decades. Maybe it’s time you make it at home.
