Have It Your Way With A Charcoal Kettle Grill
When you purchase a charcoal kettle grill you are doing more than just making a purchase that will enable you to enjoy the summer sun with your family and a select group of friends, you are in fact making a lifestyle choice. A charcoal kettle grill is more than it appears at first glance. It can become the centrepiece of your entertaining options, whether you’re used to simply cooking the staples such as steak and chicken or prefer fish or other seafood the charcoal kettle grill can open up new avenues to explore. Not only is a kettle grill one of the easiest of barbecues to operate, but it is also one of the most hassle free and versatile of all the barbecue grill types on the market.
If you’re used to roasting in the summer sun at the same rate as the meat on your traditional briquette or wood fire then a charcoal kettle grill is going to change your life. Simply wait for the few briquettes required to reach the optimum temperature and place your seasoned meat or other foods on the grill and replace the lid. Most charcoal kettle grills are supplied with a cookbook which will fill you in on how long that lid should stay shut for various cuts of meat, various types of food and how to get that meal just the way you like it, from medium rare to well done. No need to even check on the food, just take of the lid after the recommended period of time and lunch or dinner is ready.
But as they say on retail television that’s not all. A charcoal kettle grill is more than just a device for cooking meat. Your seafood will remain succulent and your vegetables can be placed strategically on the grill to cook at the same time as the main course. There are attachments that fit on the inside brim of the lower half of the charcoal kettle grill that make cooking treats such as sweet corn as easy as one two three. In fact there are a wide variety of different attachments that can be purchased to make your charcoal kettle grill into a braai master’s dream.
There are attachments to cook breakfast, rotisserie attachments to cook that juicy chicken to perfection and there are attachments to even make that pizza come out tasting like it was made inRomeand not in Rustenburg. You can even purchase different flavoured wood chips to bring a new dimension to old favourites like rump or sirloin.

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.
Whatever your preference, and whatever your choice, your barbecue grill will be the centrepiece of your entertainment options for years to come so don’t make a mistake with your purchase, contact us.
