Where is Grahm’s Cookout in Fallout 76? 

Once you have collected Prime Meat by completing Primal Cuts events, you must locate Grahm to begin his Meat Cook event. You will find him northwest of Moonshiner’s shack, which is just south of Vault 76. Grahm will appear as a public event at the top of every hour for the duration of the event. If you can’t find this location, look on your map for the box on the bottom left-hand side that will display all world events. You can click on this event to fast-travel to it.

Once you’ve located Grahm’s Cookout in Fallout 76, you must complete tasks to fill a meter displayed in the top right corner of your UI. This meter has three objective points that determine your performance during the cookout event. The more you fill the meter, the better the rewards you will earn at the end of the event.

Here are the Tasks you must complete during Grahms Meat Cook event: 

  • Clean Up the Area
  • Collect Critter Chunks
  • Collect Greens
  • Donate to Chally’s Feed
  • Donate Five Wood Scraps
  • Extinguish Brush Fires
  • Play the Drums
  • Turn the Meat Spits

One strategic tip to remember is that you can turn the meat spits and play the drums during the ‘wait for the cookout to begin’ stage, and it will fill the event meter despite the progress bar not reflecting it. This trick is a fantastic opportunity to get a head start and fill the event meter before it begins.

Understanding the impact of each task on filling the event meter is crucial for maximizing your performance. Each task adds a specific numerical value to the event bar. Once you have completed a task, an animation of Grahm grilling will appear on your screen. 

Here’s how each task will progress the event meter when completed:

  • Donate to Chally’s Feed: +2%, 30-second Cooldown
  • Collect Greens: 1.60% per Green, No Cooldown
  • Collect Critter Chunks: 1.60% per Critter Chunk, No Cooldown
  • Donate Five Wood Scraps: +0.32% per stack of five, 30-second Cooldown
  • Turn the Meat Spits: +0.08% for each meat spit turn
  • Play the Drums: +0.08% per instrument played

I have discovered that completing the Collect Critter Chunks task is the most time-effective way to fill your event meter. This method is the best because you can target critters using VATS, and they will consistently drop chunks, making it one of the quickest tasks to complete. In fact, collecting ten Critter Chunks will add 16% progress to the event meter. On the other hand, the Donating to Chally’s Feed and Donating Five Wood Scraps tasks are the least practical due to their 30-second cooldown.
