The cost of your July 4th barbecue might get you fired up.

It’ll cost you nearly $67 dollars to feed ten people on the fourth.

That comes from the “Rabobank BBQ index” and it covers two burgers – one beef and one chicken – with a slice of cheese, chips and a couple of beers, a can of soda, a pickle, and several scoops of ice cream per person.

Along with the toppings, like lettuce and tomatoes.

Beef prices have skyrocketed over the past five years, jumping 71%.

Costs for cheese, ice cream and beer are also up.
