Walmart Firefighters Steak-over challenge
San Antonio Firefighters Turn Up the Heat to Determine who Grills the Best Steak in Town
Firefighters Steak-Over challenge Set To Duel
WHAT: Local firefighters from stations 51 and 11 in San Antonio will compete in the Walmart Steak-Over Challenge presented by Kingsford® Charcoal, Dr. Pepper® and A.1.® steak sauce to determine who has the best steak-grilling chops in town. Walmart shoppers in San Antonio will get a front row seat to the event, which will take place in the parking lot at the 5555 De Zavala Rd. store. (other city stops check calendar below)
Shoppers who attend will have the chance to join in the festivities, taste test Walmart USDA Choice Premium steaks, sample Dr. Pepper and A.1. steak sauce for free, and cast their vote for best steak.
The Walmart Steak-Over Challenge will visit eight other cities, including Jacksonville, Fla., San Antonio, Texas, Tampa, Fla. Charlotte, N.C., Atlanta, Ga., Kansas City, Mo., Houston, Texas, and Indianapolis, Ind. The firefighter finalist from each city will compete on behalf of their station for a $20,000 grand prize in Los Angeles, the week of May 20.
WHY: Just in time for early grilling season and Memorial Day, Walmart is helping shoppers take their grilling up a notch with its top-quality selection of delicious, juicy and tender USDA Choice Premium Beef available in a variety of cuts. Only one in five steaks is good enough to call Walmart Choice Premium Beef, which has been approved by the USDA for quality.
The Dr. Pepper Club23 will also be there to provide entertainment and refreshments. Everyone’s invited to enter this larger-than-life party trailer and experience an exciting dance club and interactive gaming atmosphere, all without leaving the parking lot!
