Presenting That all Time SA Favourite, The Barbecue Grill
If you had to corner a South African and ask them what makes this country great then youcan bet your bottom dollar (or Rand) that somewhere on that list a day spent under the hot summer sun with the smell of cooking meat over an open fire, the taste of sweet corn with butter and salt and a fresh potato salad are going to come into the equation somewhere. Taken together this can mean only one think, that the South African outdoor favourite, the braai – referred to non-South Africans as the barbecue grill – is still as much part of the SA national psyche as Bafana Bafana and the Springbok rugby team.
Each and every South African loves a braai, as soon as that barbecue grill is set up and the first flames begin to appear it’s time for the party to begin. Life simply wouldn’t be the same without our barbecue grill; it’s part of the scenery and can be found in almost every South African household. So it comes as no surprise that when it comes to choosing a favourite barbecue grill in South Africa the argument can get pretty heated, sometimes as heated as the braai itself.
There are those who prefer the good old fashioned wood burning fire, started with the traditional balled up pieces of newspaper and who wouldn’t be caught dead with an artificial firelighter which they claim leaves a distinct taste of petroleum by product on the meat. Some braai masters are willing to bend just a little bit and will accept briquettes and firelighters as just the price we pray for progress, their claim being that by the time you the meat hits the barbecue grill those firelighters are long gone, and the fact that you don’t have to give yourself a hernia blowing the flames to life is just a happy coincidence.
Then there are those who swear by the no mess, no fuss school of cooking and will go to the wall (literally, when the grill is built in) swearing that a gas barbecue grill allows for unprecedented control of multiple burners and thus will allow the talented chef to present his guests with piping hot food fresh off the grill.
