72 oz. steak challenge - I need advise

avi | Jun 5, 2003 06:47 PM

I am contemplating taking the steak challenge at The Big Texas Steakhouse in Amarillo. The basic idea is to eat a meal consisting of a 72oz top sirloin, baked potato, salad, shrimp cocktail, and a roll within one hour. It's free if successful, $50 if not. Only about 10% succeed.

It might be fun to try. What advise would you have for me to make this feat possible, in terms of pace, chewing, sauces, salad dressing, etc? Is drinking water along with meal helpful, or a hinderance? Should one not eat for a couple of days before trying this? Should I order the top sirloin meat rare, medium, well done?

Opinions and advise are welcome.
