Long Weekend 101: Grills, Fills and Thrills

Have you been COUNTING THE DAYS until May Long/Victoria Day/May Two-Four? I sure have! And I am ready for it. Whether this weekend hails the opening of the cottage, the launching of the boat, the first grill-up on the patio or the first camping trip of the season, there is a bit of preparation to be done to make sure you, your family and friends can enjoy the weekend.

Long Weekend 101: Grills, Fills and Thrills

If your long weekend involves a road trip, here are a few resources to help you reach your destination safe and sound.

If you’re like me, you’re looking forward to firing up that grill. First though, I want to make sure it’s clean and safe. Also, free from spiders that may have made a home over the winter (eek!). Then, I check my propane tanks. Yep. Tanks. I have a backup. Embarrassing story… a few years ago, my in-laws were over for a BBQ and I had, in the hustle of getting the food prepped, forgotten to check how full the tank was. So right in the middle of cooking, I ran out of propane. Never again.

Triple Your Petro-Points when you exchange or purchase a new propane tank with us

This summer, if you need a new tank, a backup tank (!) or just a tank refill for the start of the season, head over to your nearest Petro-Canada. Until August 7th, you can exchange or purchase a new propane cylinder at Petro-Canada and receive 3x the Petro-PointsWhen you’re transporting, using or storing your propane cylinder, make sure you’re following the appropriate safety guidelines.
