5 spring grilling essentials from VG Meats

5 spring grilling essentials from VG Meats

We’ve been talking about spring for a few weeks now, first in anticipation and then as we welcomed it with open arms. Now that we’ve enjoyed those first few warm, beautiful early spring days, we’re ready to grill—even if there’s rain in the forecast for the next week or so! (April showers bring May flowers, we suppose?)

If you’re ready to stock up your fridge and freezer with amazing local products that are perfect for grilling, VG Meats is the place to go. Here’s a shopping list to help get you started—for personalized recommendations from our butchers or the rest of our local food-loving team, please give us a call or speak to our staff in store. We look forward to seeing you! 

Your shopping list

While every family has their own favourites, here are a few high quality, delicious, local products we consider essential for springtime grilling.

  • Mild Italian Pork Sausages: A classic that’s essential at spring or summer BBQ, this product is on sale for $1.25 each when you shop in store during the month of April!
  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts: Marinate them, coat them in a great spice rub, or keep it simple with a dash of sea salt. This tender local poultry is always a hit—consider buying a bulk box to get the best value on this product.
  • Hot Dogs: Everyone has a favourite type of hot dog—our all beef and all pork hot dogs are a classic, but our chicken and turkey hot dogs shouldn’t be ignored!
  • Steak: Whether you love a sirloin, a strip loin or a Denver steak (a tasty yet economical choice that’s a customer favourite), you can’t go wrong. And don’t forget to try our incredible Ontario beef tomahawk steak at least once in your life! (It won’t be just once—once you’ve had it, you’ll want it again.)
  • Burgers: We’ve linked to the whole collection, because it’s impossible to choose just one! Our portobello mushroom steak burger is a customer favourite, our turkey burger is a great alternative to beef, and these chopped sirloin burgers are a great everyday choice.
