Long weekend must-haves from VG Meats

Long weekend must-haves from VG Meats

The Canada Day long weekend is finally here and the forecast is looking (mostly) beautiful. If you haven’t done your shopping yet, there’s still time—we’ll be closed on Friday, July 1st but open again on Saturday (8am-5pm in Simcoe and 9am-5pm in Stoney Creek). Ready to get grilling? Here are a few long weekend worthy suggestions. Enjoy and happy Canada Day!

Steaks and beef burgers

Last week, we blogged about getting a great deal on your favourite steaks, so be sure to check out those tips. We also have great deals on burgers including this 10lb box of regular beef burgers (perfect for stocking up your freezer at home or up north!) and these convenient four packs of our chopped sirloin burgers (they also come in a 10lb box). There are our portobello mushroom steak burgers—a longtime customer favourite—and our ground chuck burgers, among other options. Grab your family’s favourite or try something new!

Chicken, chicken and more chicken

Chicken is so delicious and so versatile, it’s ideal for any summer BBQ. Here are a few products to consider for your Canada Day weekend:

Everyone’s got a favourite cut of chicken, but if you ask us, they’re all delicious—any choice you make is a good one!

Sausages and pork chops

Our pork sausages are a summer classic that are absolutely amazing on the BBQ. We also love a good pork chop like this centre cut chop, a boneless option, a gorgeous butterfly pork chop or pork rib chop. Some slow-cooked pork ribs are always a good idea, and we love a smoked pork chop for something a little different. Don’t forget the bacon for those long weekend breakfasts (or for adding to your favourite burger).

Remember, we also have freezer bundles that offer amazing value and great variety, plus delicious beef and pork hot dogs. Thanks as always for shopping local and supporting our family business, and have a great long weekend!
