You might want to avoid hosting the Fourth of July cookout this year with your friends and family because a new report finds that the average cookout for roughly 10 people will set you back almost $70 on just food.

Now that doesn't sound like a lot when you factor it's about $7 a person, but if you have more than ten people at your cookout then the price increases a lot and the average is actually up by almost $10 from last year.

According to the report, that cost will get you the following, but the prices may vary based on what grocery store you buy everything at:

  • 2 pounds of ground beef, $11.12
  • 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, $8.99
  • 32 ounces of pork & beans, $2.53
  • 3 pounds of center cut pork chops, $15.26
  • 2.5 quarts of fresh-squeezed lemonade, $4.43
  • 2.5 pounds of homemade potato salad, $3.27
  • 8 hamburger buns, $1.93
  • Half-gallon of vanilla ice cream, $5.16
  • 13-ounce bag of chocolate chip cookies, $4.31
  • 2 pints of strawberries, $4.44
  • 1 pound of sliced cheese, $3.53
  • 16-ounce bag of potato chips, $4.71

How much do you plan on spending for Fourth of July this year? Are you above or below the national average?
