Ding, ding, ding! Winner! Exactly what DanMcG said. Not much you can do about charcoal and wood. For meat, you can look to the sources restaurants use, like Eastern Market here in the Detroit area. Might be able to shave some cost by getting closer to the source in the retail chain.
The other thing to consider is that if you're getting your meat from a good butcher you'll pay more, but you'll cook better meat than you'll see at a chain like Dave's.
