Get long weekend ready with VG Meats!
The first long weekend of the season is here and we couldn’t be more excited! Whether you’re heading north, taking it easy at home or planning a big BBQ with friends, VG Meats has everything you need for an awesome Victoria Day weekend that’s packed with delicious, high quality local food. We know every family has their favourite meals for the cottage or the campsite, but we’ve made a list to inspire anyone who’s looking for long weekend meal ideas. We look forward to seeing you in store soon—on Saturday, we’ll be open in Simcoe and Stoney Creek until 5pm.
What to pack for the campground
Whether you’re setting up a tent in the woods, on a campsite by the lake or in your own backyard (we’ve seen families with little kids introduce camping this way!), you’re going to want to eat a good meal this weekend. Here are some products to fill your cooler with:
- Little VGs for snacking
- All beef hot dogs
- Smoked pork chops (easy to prepare since they’re smoked, not raw)
- Smoked beef sausages
What to pack for the cottage
Cottages can be simple and rustic or have a fully-equipped kitchen, but in either case, using the BBQ is key. Here are a few products we recommend for the cottage:
Backyard BBQ favourites
Anything goes for a long weekend BBQ—you can cook up some classic burgers and hot dogs, grilled chicken breasts or another summer favourite—but we’ve got a few things to add to that list.
- Bacon for topping those burgers
- A boneless roast for making pulled pork (or try our pulled BBQ chicken or pulled beef for a fun change)
- Pork back ribs
- Lamb patties
- Marinated jerk drumsticks
Finally, if your long weekend plans involve a low key picnic, here’s what we recommend picking up in store.
- Some more of those tasty Little VGs
- Deli meats and local cheese
- Farm fresh eggs for hard-boiled eggs or egg salad
No matter how you spend the long weekend, we hope you get to enjoy it with good friends, family and delicious local food. Happy Victoria Day, everyone! Remember, our online store is open 24/7 if you’d like to place an order over the holiday weekend.
