Your Fourth of July picnic will cost slightly less this year.
According to the American Farm Bureau’s informal survey, a summer cookout for 10 people will cost you around is $55.70, or just under six dollars per person. The cost of the cookout is down slightly (less than 1%) from last year. Competition in the meat case is making grilling for the fourth even more affordable. This year’s menu consists of hot dogs and buns, cheeseburgers and buns, pork spare ribs, deli potato salad, baked beans, corn chips, lemonade, chocolate milk, ketchup, mustard and watermelon for dessert.
