Once a must-stop along State Route 105, the shack is now little more than a shooting range with animals and, if pursuing Key to the Past, Scorched led by David Thorpe. The barbecue shack itself contains a cooking station and a large number of kitchen-related junk and loot. The houses are both sealed and inaccessible.
Big Fred's BBQ Shack is a restaurant based out of a wooden shack near two boarded-up townhomes. A pack of foxes roams the area, and an off-road vehicle can be found in the car park. Inside the shack is a cooking stove, along with various kitchen-related junk. To the left of the shack is the outdoor dining area. A clown hat can be found sitting on one of the tables.
- Burnt ends - Note, on the counter of the shack. It is underneath a battered clipboard, which must be taken in order to see the note.
- Cutthroats key fragment - Holotape, on the body of the Cutthroats former leader David Thorpe (only during Key to the Past).
- Dr. Frank's journal - Note, next to Dr. Frank, during Unsolved: Tracking Terror.
Big Fred's BBQ Shack appears only in Fallout 76.
