Stocks are up; Fire up the grill.

A surge in manufacturing on the United Kingdom and China helped the DOW and S&P to both close at record-highs today.  The move comes at the expense of bond sales, which drops prices and in turn threatens to pushes interest rates upward.

Anticipating that every red-blooded American will be firing up the grill this upcoming weekend, prices of beef, pork, and cheese are all up over 13%, though ketchup is down 12%.  No reports on the price of catsup.
