What is Meat Judging?

(VIDEO) Members of award-winning Texas Tech team explain what takes place at competitions around the country.

Texas Tech's Meat Judging Team has proven it's the cream of the crop, bringing home a dozen national championship trophies over the past 15 years.

"Our success today is due to many years of alumni, and people who have come through here, that have set a standard," said Mark Miller, the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo Distinguished Chair in Meat Science who serves as the team's coach. "We have a program that's set up to try to teach everyone to pursue excellence."

Despite its success, many don't know what it is exactly the team does. Eat steaks? Slice meat? We sat down with members, both current and former, to clear up any misconceptions.
