How To Cook Meat

In the pouch, there is a BBQ Spit. This is used when out in the field. Go through your inventory and select the BBQ Spit. Make sure that you also have Raw Meat in the pouch.

Selecting the BBQ spit will immediately prompt the hunter to begin roasting!

It is best to do this before a hunt and have cooked meat prepared in your pouch. Cooking the meat takes time and is very risky to do in the middle of combat.

How To Make Well-Done Steak

There are different levels at which you can cook the steak. The best type of steak is the Well-Done steak. Though both eare and well-done steak give the same amount of stamina boost, the well-done steak's stamina boost lasts longer.

Type Stamina
Rare Steak Moderate stamina Boost
Well-Done Steak Moderate stamina decreases slowly
Burnt Steak Small stamina Boost

2 and 1/4 Rotations

There is an option to listen to the music that plays while you are using the BBQ Spit. Using the music as a guide is difficult unless you are familiar enough to know on which note the steak is well-done.

Another option is to watch the steak and see when it turns perfectly red, but the amount of variables and timing is difficult to land.

The best way to make a well-done steak every single time is to watch the rotation of the steak on the spit. After 2 1/4 rotations, the meat will be perfectly cooked and you will be ready to increase your stamina and hunt a monster!

How To Consume Steak

Once you cook your Raw Meat it will be in your inventory. If you decide to cook meat beforehand to bring along on your hunts, you can find them in your pouch as raw, well-done, or burnt steaks!
