"NOW WE ARE GOING TO BARBECUE"
is the literal translation of the title of this posting.
HOWEVER, it sounds MUCH better in Afrikaans.
No matter which of the eleven official South African languages you speak,
it will always be a *BRAAI*
Every "braai-master" has a preference of what they use for their fire.
In my case it is usually a mix of wood and charcoal
We have a small circular braai at home.
It will do enough to serve four people.
Every time I braai, I collide with this.
Invariably I have to hit my head at least once
before I remember to take it down
Our local butchery makes the BEST chicken kebabs.
Marinated and ready to go...
You can skewer "wors" and do it in a spiral.
Personally, I prefer to cut it up
Ready for the fire...
Even though I have several sets of braai tongs,
this is STILL my favourite
You HAVE to have Baked Beans at a braai.
It says so in the rule book!
Another braai rule: There has to be smoke.
And it HAS to be blowing in YOUR direction,
no matter where you move.
OK, the fire might have been a little hot,
but my wife was hungry...and that is my excuse for starting too soon
Up close and personal...
Lunch is ready,the chicken was a little overcooked.
Hence it not making the final pictures.
It was delicious never the less
Baked beans, coleslaw and wors...
A meal for a champ!
I was going to do potatoes but I forgot.
And the chicken kebabs were VERY tasty.
We have enough left over for supper tonight.
Nothing like cold braai meat...
The final braai rule:
Someone will ALWAYS walk past the now cooling fire on their way home,
and their parting shot as they head for their car...
"Now the fire is ready"...
My manager...keeping an eye on proceedings
Even "Modom" came out to see what was going on.
