Summer is the time for barbecues with friends, enjoying the outdoors, whether in the garden, on the terrace of the house or in the places to rent.
It is an opportunity to have fun, be with friends and also eat super delicious. In this blog post we are going to give you some tips so that the barbecue turns out as you imagine.
If you do not have a terrace to invite your friends, we suggest you rent a place on the outskirts of Barcelona especially for this, which is located near the city of Barcelona, a maximum of 20 minutes by car. They are perfect places to spend a day outdoors and surrounded by nature, do you sign up?
A space with nature and in the heart of the Montnegre and Corridor Natural Park, between Arenys and Vallgorguina, also with around twenty grills and tables to prepare a good calçotada between oaks and pines. The price per person is 3.50 euros, and with it there is the right to a table and grill. They also sell bales of firewood for 3-3.50 euros, but you will have to carry everything else.
Can Colomers, 1 (Vallgorguina).
It is a house with a picnic area and barbecues that the Pascual family has run since 65. It has exterior tables, without reservation, and interior tables, with reservation. You can take your firewood or buy everything there, including calçots, if they are reserved until the maximum on Wednesday before the weekend. They also rent mortars, tongs and poles: the typical thing that you forget at home. Come on, you just have to bring your appetite.

Torrent de Can Coll
This private recreation area is ideal to visit if you are new to barbecues and grills: it belongs to the Torrent restaurant in Can Coll, where they tell us that they can help you light the fire if it does not come out. There are 28 barbecues that open every day, there are 42 tables and the right to grill and firewood costs eight euros, at 4.5 euros the sack of coal. If you forget the aioli or you have made short of calçots or bacon, they will sell it to you. It is an excellent starting point to visit the darkest part of Collserola.
How much to buy?
To know how much meat to buy for a barbecue, you should not forget anything and also count the weight of sausages, hamburgers, … but the most basic rule is that if it is mostly bone-in meat, it will take about 500 g per adult person and about 250 g for each child and always count on adding between 20 and 25% more, that there is always someone who comes very hungry. If it is almost all meat without bone, slightly more than half of the previous amounts.
Where to buy?
We recommend Deli Argentina, a place with top quality meat. Here you can find everything for your event, from the barbecue, meat, braziers, charcoal and much more. We leave you the link of their website so you can access to see all the products.
A good opportunity to barbecue is in San Joan, with friends to celebrate, what do you think? Then tell us how it turned out.
