They exist but I think that they may not be easy to find, here's a list of places that have some kind of leisure areas http://www.visitalgarve.pt/visitalgarve/vEN/VivaOAlgarve/388/Nature+and+Landscape/Actividades/Natural+Areas/Sugestoes/Nature+for+Enjoyment.htm.

National Forest of Barão de São João, it has as picnic area so it's probable that it will have some BBQ area. Fontes de Estombar also a picnic area so it's probable that it will have some BBQ area, it's part of the Lagoa Municipal Leisure and Environmental Park. Pego do Inferno it was burned during the late August fire, so not an option. Another possible option may be the area of Fonte Pequena and Fonte Grande, at Alte.

As you leave Tavira follow signs that direct you to Parque Lazer, You arrive in a nice park with views and they have designated barbeque areas but it closes about 7PM

In the present drought, it hasn't rained here for months, a BBQ in the countryside is highly inadvisable.

I have lived here seven years and have never actually seen anywhere advertised as a public area. There is however little to stop people setting up their own kit in remote areas, except beaches where it is actually illegal in many areas.
