Happy Birthday Canada!

It's hot here, not yet 11 a.m. and the temperature is already in the low 30's degrees C. (80's F) where I am in the valley. Thankfully there is a pleasant breeze coming off the Fraser River so I'll be kicking back today puttering around doing some gardening in the shade. Fireworks and festivities with a celtic band at Spirit Park later this evening.

Have to smile about that statement. This has been discussed before and whether it is or isn't depends on where you were raised. We were, originally from California and barbecuing is what we did out side using charcoal or gas (in more recent years) When my son started dating his X wife who was from NC, she didn't have a clue what he was talking about. She told him, barbecue was a sauce you use when you grill. He told her, no, you barbecue on a grill. Maybe that is where there trouble started.

Anyway, as years have gone by and we now live in the northern part of the southern states we also say we are grilling. So, you see, it does depend and I don't think there is a right or a wrong answer.

Fear not Chris Canadians are fully versed on the art of BBQing although like Americans not every one has a multi thousand dollar smoker in the backyard,we make do with what we got.
Canadian Southern BBQ Association

Although in my social circles Canada Day illicit s visions of drinking beer rather than the consumption of southern style BBQ most meat if any usually consists of hot dogs or hamburgers on a backyard charcoal briquet type grille

Some meats are meant to be cooked "low and slow" - that is, at low temperatures over long periods of time. Beef brisket is one. You should look for cuts that have plenty of fat because as the fat melts with slow cooking, it bastes the meat.

Canada has only been independent for 21 years?

I thought drinking beer was legal in Canada, not "illicit".

Yes, no, maybe.

Long read, but it answers the question.

Happy Canada Day to all of us!

For the first time (in my memory) it's raining on July 1st in this fair province of NS so the fireworks are being re-scheduled!
