Cooking to Perfection on a Spit Braai
There is no better way to cook a whole lamb than on spit braai. A spit braai is basically a pole with a motor attached over a bed of coals. The meat is placed on the pole and the motor turns the pole to ensure that the meat is cooked evenly over the coals. There are many types of meat that can be cooked on a spit. One or more chickens can be cooked to perfection or variety of meats can be cooked at the same time for your Christmas lunches. But just the thought of the smell of a succulent lamb slowly turning all day on a spit braai is enough to make your mouth begin to salivate and your stomach grumble.
You can purchase your own spit braai but as a spit braai is mainly used to cater for many people, it would probably be best to hire one for a special event or occasion. There are however smaller spit braais on the market. These spit braais are usually heated by gas with a smaller motor attached to turn your meat. The important thing to remember when purchasing or hiring a spit braai is that although it will always deliver tender meat cooked to absolute perfection it takes time. Depending on the size of the roast or lamb that you wish to cook, it can take up to a whole day of the spit turning and you basting the meat before you can eat. So if you have hired a spit braai it may be best to enquire whether you can hire someone to cook the meat for you.
If you own restaurant or catering company, the purchase of a spit braai can be a great addition to your cooking equipment. The spit braai is a great way to bring the feeling and aromas of a fun loving South African braai to your event or occasion.
So if your craving for that lamb cannot be repressed, get a conventional or gas spit braai and satisfy those longings. For further information on these products and services, please contact us today.
