Pat LaFrieda, Jr., the "Magician of Meat," runs a third-generation wholesale meat purveyor business in New Jersey with his cranky dad, Pat Sr., and his smooth-talking cousin, Mark Pastore. They've built the company into a meat empire, but the high-"steaks" business has plenty of pitfalls.

Tune in to Meat Men tonight (and every Thursday) at 10:30pm ET on Cooking Channel to watch how Pat and his family handle everything from last-minute requests and creating burger blends and menus for new clients to dealing with difficult customers and navigating the personalities of a 500-person work staff.
