From now through July 12, 2024, customers can order Walmart’s summer cookout basket for just under $50. It feeds about eight people and comes in at about $6 per person. And they’re not skimping on what’s included, which is:

  • 10-count pack of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners Hot Dogs

  • 8-count Wonder Bread Classic Hot Dog Buns

  • 24 oz. Great Value Tomato Ketchup

  • 20 oz. Great Value Yellow Mustard

  • 10 oz. Great Value Sweet Relish

  • 10.5 oz. Great Value Hot Dog Chili Sauce

  • 28 oz. can Bush’s Original Baked Beans

  • 32 oz. Freshness Guaranteed Original Potato Salad

  • Fresh Seedless Watermelon

  • 4-count tray Fresh Sweet Corn on the Cob

  • 8 oz. bag of Lay’s Classic Potato Chips

  • 12-pack Pepsi Cola bottles

  • 10-count box of Kool-Aid Jammers Tropical Punch Kids Drink

  • 12-count Great Value Assorted Flavor Freedom Ice Pops

  • 10-count Freshness Guaranteed Chocolate Chip Bakery Cookies

Want to add more freshness to this meal? Try adding something like our Chopped Salad with Chickpeas, Olives & Feta or a Caprese Salad with Cherry Tomatoes.

For something fruity, our Watermelon, Cucumber & Corn Salsa with crispy tortilla chips is always a hit. Or throw together a Blueberry-Peach Salad with Sesame-Ginger Balsamic Vinaigrette.

Don’t love hot dogs but want to stay within a budget? Try cheaper cuts of meat to toss on the grill. Pick up bone-in chicken thighs to make Grilled Chicken with Citrus-BBQ Glaze. Or make a marinade for a beef sirloin steak. After it comes off the grill, let it rest for 5-10 minutes then slice it thin to make it go further.

Want to really wow your crowd? Try grilling watermelon slices. Have various toppings available and mix it up—like ancho chili powder with lime zest, or feta cheese crumbles and balsamic glaze.

Craving something sweet? Save the ice pops and cookies for the kids. For a more grown-up dessert, try our Lemon-Raspberry Dump Cake or Strawberry Rhubarb Icebox Cake—both perfect endings to a summertime barbecue.
