The Sims Mobile: Backyard Barbecue 2019 Event + Quest Walkthrough

Presented by EA Game Changers

The Sims Mobile is back with the Backyard Barbecue event with a small twist! This time around they’re throwing in a few more items to a similar collection that they’ve released last year along with a new limited time quest which will let you unlock new items and greenery for your garden!

Let’s begin with the breakdown of the event:

Backyard Barbecue Event

The Backyard Barbecue Event will last for 7 days – starting April 4th, 2019. You’ll be able to access it using the special lemonade glass icon on the top right corner. From the event interace you’ll be able to keep track of your Lemon Slices (tokens for this event), events that’ll help you earn lemon slices and two item chests: the Barbecue Chest that can be purchased using SimCash and Gourmet Barbecue Chests that can be obtained via SimCash.

Here’s an overview of these two chests:

Both chests bring the same items to the table – except for the fact that purchasing Gourmet Barbecue Chests will give you higher chances of obtaining rare items.

Down below you can check out the full breakdown of the items you’ll be able to obtain via chests:

  • Oh, this helped a lot. Thank you. Really appreciate you running this website, keeping me and others informed. I literally check this every day for info on the sims 4 because I have been waiting for the sims gallery to come out for ps4 for so long. I hope it comes out soon because I suck at building homes and own only a couple of packs, even though I want more. Once again, thank you. I REALLY appreciate it. 🙂

  • What is the quickest way to collect the most lemon slices? Not with the special tasks (that take 8+ hours) or llama zoom. Hobby, relationship, work? It seems so random. Thank you.

    • The only way to collect more lemon slices is through the event activities and llama zoom completion. Yes, sometimes you randomly get awarded slices from single hobby/relationship/career events but, like I said, it’s at random and usually a small amount. It does take awhile but the most efficient way to do it is to start your sims on the event activities or llama zoo activities before you go to sleep, and when you wake up they should be done.

    • The only way to receive lemon slices is through the event activities and the completion of the llama zoo activities. Yes, it takes a long time, but the most efficient way to do it is to get your sims started on the activities before you go to sleep, when you wake up they’ll be done.

  • Open in to the sim mobile today 15th april 2019, there was an update. After update, open the game and there was a prompt instruction to place the watering can to collect lemon slices… Wtf.. After working my butt off after the event only to find out there was a way to get free lemon. Way to go ea.. Get your s@#t together
