6 must-have local products for BBQ season

BBQ season is officially here and we couldn’t be happier! If you’re looking for some inspiration for your next online order or visit to VG Meats in Simcoe or Stoney Creek, we’ve got ideas. Cheers to a great season ahead—let’s all get ready to get outside and enjoy it!

Burgers, burgers, burgers

Burgers are a spring and summer staple that should always be in your freezer, and VG Meats has many delicious varieties to choose from. Some popular options include our regular beef burgers (available in a pack of four of a 10lb box), our portobello mushroom steak burgers, our chopped sirloin burgers (also available in a 10lb box), our ground chuck burgers (again, also available in a 10lb box) and our smokey woodhouse beef patties. Another great option is the Rowe Farms beef and bison burger, which VG Meats carries online and in stores. We’ve also got chicken burgers, turkey burgers and lamb patties so you can switch things up!

Sausages and hot dogs

We love sausages on the grill, and hot dogs are another BBQ staple that kids and adults both enjoy (try our amazing all beef and pork hot dog options). Check out VG’s classic mild Italian sausage or spice things up with our hot Italian sausage. We’ve also got sweet fennel pork sausage, apple cinnamon pork sausage and our smoked beef sausage (available in hot and mild options). All of these delicious sausages are local, high quality and gluten-free!

Ontario beef steaks

Ontario beef is some of the best in the world, and our steaks are simply phenomenal. VG Meats truly has something for everyone—if you’re looking for a great weeknight steak, something to impress your dinner guests or an incredible showstopper like our tomahawk steak, we’ve got it. We’re also able to recommend amazing local steaks at a great price point—please speak to your local VG Meats butcher for personalized recommendations, or start with something like our Denver steak. It’s an economical choice that’s so tasty, the VG brothers always have them on hand! You can also grab a steak bundle, some flavourful, aged steaks like this porterhouse, or our awesome mini steaks.

Chicken and ribs

Finally, don’t forget to grab some delicious, tender pork back ribs and your favourite cuts of Ontario poultry. We recommend starting with some boneless skinless chicken breasts, some boneless skinless chicken thighs, a package of our jerk seasoned drumsticks and maybe a few packages of our awesome chicken wings. There are so many cuts to choose from and all of them are delicious, so pick up your favourites and be ready to BBQ whenever the mood strikes. Thanks for reading and here’s to a wonderful grilling season ahead!
