Four expert butchers bring the sharpest blades to slice through this demanding, first-of-its-kind test of skill. First, the butchers must break down an entire deer using only a traditional flint knife. With the clock ticking, the competitor with the least number of acceptable retail cuts is eliminated. The remaining three must cut steaks using only a skill hones in butcher--eyeballing the thickness without a ruler. The two competitors left standing move on to the final round to face off against a surprise beast: wild boar. Which butcher will yield the most meat value from this monster, be crowned the Butcher Champion and take home $10,000?

Four Butchers stuff their way through the first round of competition where they must fill the inside of a turkey with several layers of other smaller birds. They race each other to break down and grind beef to make burgers of various weights without using a scale. Only two butchers advance to the final round where they take on an Opah. Only one can impress the judges and emerge as The Butcher Champion and take home the $10,000 prize.
