If there's someone on your Christmas list that loves everything meat, beer and rock and roll, the first-ever cookbook coming this spring from Chicago's own ManBQue, the local grilling club that is to meat, beer and brotherhood what the Red Hat Society is to red hats and middle aged women, might be right up their alley. Filled with 120 recipes from fresh-ground burgers to pickled pig tongue, the book, now available for preorder, also includes beer pairings, a music list and the obligatory food porn.
