Tyson John of Logan is one of 25 butchers from the western region who will compete in the Texas Roadhouse National Meat Cutting Challenge.
The event takes place Wednesday, March 21 at the Olympic Oval in West Valley City, with all cutting performed at a chilly 38 degrees.
Each participant receives 30 to 40 pounds of beef to cut, and meat cutters will be judged on quality, yield and speed in the timed "cut-off." The winner is the butcher who yields the most steaks, with the highest quality cut in the least amount of time.
The seven meat cutters with the highest scores will advance to the national competition Florida. The winner of the April competition will receive a grand prize of $20,000 and the "Meat Cutter of the Year" title.
