Jan Braai’s top 10 braai tips

The man behind National Braai Day, Jan Braai, tells you what’s important to him when he lights a fire

  • Nothing beats a real wood fire.
  • ‘Gas’ is Afrikaans for a guest at your braai, not something you braai with.
  • Braaing is the only fat-negative way of cooking food. Even when you steam food the fat in it stays behind. When you braai the fat drips out.
  • Try not to braai with indigenous wood. Alien vegetation like Rooikrantz and Blackwattle drink lots of ground water and besides it feels good burning Australian invaders.
  • Braaing is a direct form of energy use, from the coals, to your meat. With conventional electricity there is a lot of spillage between the power plant, power lines, electricity box, wires, stove and pan. If you love the earth, braai.
  • Have enough ice at your braai to put in Klippies & Coke, to keep beer cold, and to treat burn wounds with.
  • Smoke goes in the direction of pretty people, so send them to the kitchen to go and make salad.
  • Animals eat grass, leaves and vegetables all their lives and convert it to meat. Eating meat is like eating vitamin pills.
  • A cow must only be killed once. Don’t braai you steak until the flavour is dead too.
  • A braaibroodjie is your chance in life to have your bread buttered on both sides.
