The Art of the South African Braai...

As promised (Aubrey..) here is the step by step way to prepare a truely South African Braai! :)

1st. Find a braai area...this could be a smart built in one or just some bricks packed in a square with a grid on the top if you want to be really bush-like and rough it...


2nd. Put in some charcoal and if you want to be a smarty-pants, some firelighters aswell.

3rd. Build a fire under the grid - careful not to get burnt now see... note, before putting petrol or something similar on the coals to speed up the burning process, be fully prepared to leave with less eyebrows than you started with

..just a little tip...

4th. Spice meat as desired, I recommend the first bottle, the orange one...yum yum...
5th. Put meat on the grid..or between the grid if you are using one of those. Note: Only put meat on when fire has died down a little, you must be able to hold your hand over the top of the braai for at least 10 seconds before it starts to hurt. :) No matter how hungry you are, dont put meat on before this time unless you want to be eating burnt offerings on top of having no eyebrows...got eat some salad in the meantime.


6th.While waiting for the meat to cook we South Africans normally sit around and chat or if its a day time braai and you live in Durban where the suns always shining, you can have a swim!


7th. Enjoy!
If any non-South Africans do give this a try, please send me some pics and I will be sure to put them up on my Blog!
Happy Braai-ing!!

Hey! Thanks for the comment! I love when new people comment on my blog :) It's good to know that you have friends that enjoyed the camp experience! I'm pretty nervous but still way excited. I hope I love it too! It's really awesome to see a blog from someone in a different country! I've never really left the US before, but I plan to someday hopefully soon! Have you ever been to the US? You mentioned having friends from other countries so I thought maybe you have. Anyway, it was nice visiting your blog :)

hey Rochelle (that is a very cool name) - P has never come across it before.

If the UK wasnt so wet Mr P would build one of these BBQ jobs in his vast back-garden.

Anyway re Botswana - have you read "The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency" by Alexander McCall Smith?

It's set in Botswana.

PS - Where can I get that application form?

That looked good but its just way too much work.

It would be easier to hire a Fire-Eater from the Circus to come and blow flames on the meat. Much faster.

LOL, The picture at the end of the cat swimming is our cat Lucy in our pool. This was taken 2 summers ago. Neat to see her floating around on the net for others to enjoy her happiness.
