So, the big Fourth of July party will be held at your place. Basking in the glory of being the grill master is the easy part. Paying for the party is the hard part. Meat, if you haven't noticed, is expensive.
Luckily, you can get away with putting out a great spread without breaking the bank. You just have to know where to look for cheap meat.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when firing up the grill:
1. Buy in Bulk -- Always buy your meats in family packs. You get a much better deal and you can repackage leftovers into freezer bags.
2. Skewers -- Consider making skewers and use a bunch of (cheap) veggies. Dainty cubes of meat are much more reasonably priced than big slabs.
3. Fat Content -- Cheaper cuts of steak often grill better due to the fat content, so go with the 7- bone chuck steaks.
4. Cheat with Potatoes -- Always bake potatoes on the grill before your cuts of meat. You can fill your guests up on a baked potato so they don't chow down on your expensive meat.

Lots of fun not to be outdone!
Just follow the police sirens! They always add to the out of control party atmosphere!
Don't forget hot dogs and sausages--cheap and delicious and tell your friends to bring a side to share. Dogs go with everything--and are So American!!!!!
