CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Sixteen skilled butchers are sharpening their knives and showcasing their expertise at the annual Texas Roadhouse meat cutting competition. With a $25,000 prize at stake, competitors are judged on both the quality of their steak cuts and their cutting speed as they prepare a range of steak styles on aluminum trays.
The contest, known for its rigorous standards, will see its top three contenders advance to compete in Nashville, with subsequent rounds in Florida. One competitor, James Wisecarver, is drawing attention not just for his aptly fitting surname but also for his claim of a strategic approach to the competition.
