'Fallout 76' Meat Week Guide - Grahm's Meat Cook Location, Primal Cuts & Rewards

Fallout 76 celebrates Meat Week this week, and we want you to make the most of it. Primal Cut events are doling out Prime Meat, and Grahm's Meat Cook is the only place to stash it. We'll answer your big questions and recap the unique rewards below.

Fallout 76 Primal Cut Events

Primal Cut events happen about every 15 minutes, and sometimes several can be happening on the same server at once. The events spawn in static locations, so here are the spots. These locations are listed in ascending enemy difficulty. The harder the challenge, the more Prime Meat you'll get.

The Forest: At Flatwoods

These should be pretty easy to find, as you will be notified and your map will be marked when the Primal Cut events are active. To start the event, play the drums on the barrel as seen in this picture. Now, just kill all four waves of Primal Creatures including the boss at the end.

The only reward you get for finishing a Primal Cut event, besides any gained XP and a few Caps, is Prime Meat. The amount of Prime Meat you get correlates to the difficulty of the encounter and the spawn you choose.

  • Forest and Toxic Valley: Three Prime Meat
  • Ash Heap and Savage Divide: Four Prime Meat
  • Mire and Cranberry: Five Prime Meat

Grahm's Meat Cook Event

Unlike the Primal Cuts, which happen often, the Grahm's Meat Cook event only happens once per hour. With that in mind, it helps to have the Good With Salt perk to keep your Prime Meat fresh. The perk decreases spoil rates by 90 percent.

Once Grahm is active, you'll find him near Vault 76 in this marked spot.

To complete the mission, all you have to do is perform one of several tasks to fill the meter that "helps Grahm throw a successful cookout." The more people you have doing these tasks, the more likely it is you'll reach a threshold.
