FREMONT COUNTY, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

The first annual Rendezvous City Beef Roundup will be this Saturday at CWC in Riverton. It will determine the best of the best in beef producers from across the state.

This event is seeking to secure connections between producers and consumers of local meat in our area. It happens this weekend and at the end, we'll get to know who has the best tasting steak.

Founder of the event and owner of ‘Wyoming Cowboy Cuts,’ Tyler McCann noted that, “We wanted for consumers and producers to be able to get together and for people to be able to see what we do on a daily basis to make a steak.”

As The McCann's with Wyoming Cowboy Cuts grew their business, they realized the need for direct to consumer education.

“Even right here in the middle of Wyoming, there’s a lot of people that don’t understand everything that goes into making a steak,” mentioned McCann.

The winner can then advertise as the best beef in Wyoming to promote and grow their business.

“The reviews of each person said we have the best steak, or they have the best steak. So we thought, why don’t we have...the public come and vote, who has the best beef in Wyoming,” stated McCann.

There are eight or nine producers from around the state that are attending the event from areas like Jackson, Daniel, Lusk, Pavillion, Cody, and Powell.

“They have different breeds of cattle, different ways of finishing their cattle, from grass fed and grass finished to grain finished. So if you buy a VIP [ticket] you’re going to get a one ounce serving from each of those different producers,” stated McCann.

The attendees will be sampling New York Strip Steak from all producers and will then vote to determine the best.

“10-4 is general admission, you’ll get to meet all the producers. They’ll have meat there for sale that’s all USDA or Wyoming State Inspected. There’s some talks throughout the day. If you’re got any questions about beef from the time it’s born until it’s on the plate, they’ll be somebody there that can answer those questions,” McCann noted.

 The event tickets can be purchased at the door of the I-Tech building at CWC in Riverton on Saturday or they can be purchased ahead of time from the CWC website.
