Stubborn Goat Southern Style BBQ

BBQ on Canada Day is a classic! Step it up a notch by attending the Stubborn Goat‘s Canada 150 Weekend Southern Style BBQ event. With a brand new smoker and applewood from Noggins Farm, they’re ready to show you what a feast really looks like. To top it all off, they’ll have flights of Bulwark Cider to wash it all down. All of the flavour and fun without all the work; sounds like the perfect day to us! More Info: Stubborn Goat
