in #CASE you missed it… Here’s How Much Your July 4th Cookout Should Cost

New report suggests a July 4th cookout for ten should only cost $55.70

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, a typical July 4th cookout for 10 people should only set you back $55.70 or about $5.57 per person

The amount is based on 97 volunteer shoppers in 25 states checking retail prices at their local grocery store to determine the overall costs

The meal will include hotdogs, burgers, ribs, potato salad and more

The group put out their annual report on the cost of a typical July 4th cookout, and they claim a bash for 10 people should only set you back $55.70...TOTAL. That's right, you only need to spend about $5.57 per person. Not only does that number sounds low (I mean seriously where do they go shopping?) it is actually a slight decrease (1%) from last year.

The amount is based on 97 volunteer shoppers in 25 states, who retail prices at their local grocery store to determine the overall costs. And believe it or not, the $55.60 doesn’t just have you serving a few measly burgers and dogs.

According to the report, that cost will get you:

eight hotdogs and buns

eight quarter-pound hamburgers and buns with cheese slices

four pounds of pork spare ribs

ketchup and mustard

three pounds of Deli potato salad

28-ounces of baked beans

15 ounces of corn chips

two quarts of lemonade

two quarts of chocolate milk

four pounds of watermelon for dessert
