The May long weekend is here, and you sun-worshipping Manitobans know exactly what that means. It means -- and it breaks my heart to say this -- there are only about four months left before the Stanley Cup playoffs are finished.
Ha ha ha! I am just kidding around in a light-hearted manner, of course. There is no (very bad word) way the playoffs will wrap up that soon.
What the arrival of this holiday weekend really means in this part of the country is the unofficial start of summer and -- prepare to begin drooling profusely -- the official launch of Backyard Barbecue Season.
Is that exciting news, or what? Answer: No, it isn't, because I can tell by the haphazard way you are reading today's column you are totally unprepared to grill in a manner I deem acceptable.
Do you know what you need? What you need is a well-researched, informative article telling you how to safely fire up both your barbecue and your taste buds.
Unfortunately, I don't have one of those lying around, so you are going to have to make do with Doug's Annual Step-by-Step Guide to the Manly Art of Grilling Meat:
