How much does a grilled meat cost?

Help: how much does a grilled meat cost?

Here, the time of year has arrived that calls out loudly: barbecue season! Between the Easter barbecue and Easter Monday, the long weekends and the holidays between May and June, every occasion is a good one to organize a barbecue with friends or relatives.

Organizing a barbecue with friends and relatives is a convivial and fun occasion, but how much does it cost? Preparing a perfect barbecue is an art that requires attention to the quantity and quality of the meat.

Let's analyze the factors that influence the cost of a barbecue, and see some tips for saving money and enjoying a barbecue without worries.

How much meat do you need for a barbecue?

The amount of meat needed depends on the number of people and their appetite.

On average, approximately 250-300 grams of meat per person is calculated for a mixed grill; this means you should aim for a mix of burgers, salamis, kebabs and ribs, with a variety of beef and pork.

If you buy foods with bones (for example ribs, t-bones, ribs, etc.), increase the weight to approximately 260 g. per person.

Obviously, if there are children among the people on the bill, they should be considered half a portion if they are older or nothing if they are still small (at most they will be tasted and nibbled here and there).

How much meat do you need for a barbecue for 10 people?

If you are organizing a barbecue for 10 people, consider around 500-600 g of mixed meat per person (if you are particularly hungry).

How many kg of meat for 8 people?

For a barbecue for 8 people, you can calculate a similar quantity, aiming for around 600g of meat per person. Make sure you have enough variety to please all tastes.

How many ribs for 5 people?

If you have a group of 5 people, consider at least 2-3 ribs per person. An approximate bill is 260g of meat per person, if you are including foods with bones.

Here are some examples of kg of meat per person:

  • 9-10 people: 2.5-3 kg of mixed meat
  • 7-8 people: 2-2.4 kg of mixed meat
  • 4-5 people: 1.25-1.5 kg of mixed meat

What to buy for a grilled meat?

In addition to meat, for a complete barbecue you need appetizers, appetizers, bread and side dishes. Equip yourself with:

  • Vegetables : courgettes, aubergines, peppers and tomatoes
  • Grilled side dishes : bread, focaccia and salad
  • Sauces : ketchup, mayonnaise, barbecue sauce or sauces of your choice
  • Drinks : water, beer or wine

The cost varies depending on the quality and type of meat and vegetables you choose. To save money, opt for fewer but quality cuts of meat, seasonal vegetables and homemade sauces.

The cost of a barbecue: variables and tips for saving

Remember that the number of people who can be satisfied with a barbecue varies depending on various factors, such as the quantity of meat and other foods available, the appetite of the guests and the presence of children.

Calculating the precise cost of a barbecue is a little complex, because it depends on several factors:

  • Number of people : on average, 250-300 grams of meat per person is calculated for a mixed grill. With 1 kg of meat each you can have a significant barbecue, but you can eat a lot even with a little less, if you add appetizers and side dishes.
  • Meat quality : fine cuts of meat and certified meats have a higher cost.
  • Type of meat : Pork is generally cheaper than beef.
  • Additional products : vegetables, sauces, bread, drinks and other extras influence the final cost.

However, there are solutions that help you save money, for example our grill boxes are perfect for 4/8 people and offer a convenient solution for a complete barbecue, with quality meat and a competitive price.

Tips to save money for grilled meat:

  • Buy the meat in advance and take advantage of the offers.
  • Choose less valuable cuts of meat.
  • Prepare the sauces at home.
  • Buy seasonal vegetables.
  • Organize a collective barbecue and split the costs.
  • Also consider the option of adding appetizers and desserts to reduce the amount of meat you need to purchase.

With a little planning, you can host a tasty and affordable barbecue for everyone.
