– Before the time starts, you will be allowed to cut into the steak, and take one bite. If the steak tastes good and is cooked to your satisfaction, we will start the time upon your acceptable approval. The time will not stop, and the contest is on, so make SURE before you say “yes.”

– You will be disqualified if anyone assists you in cutting, preparing or eating of your meal.

– You don’t have to eat the fat, but we will judge this. (When you are done they stop the clock and wait for a manager. They will then restart the clock if more needs to be eaten per the judge.)
