Braai food

What exactly is a braai?

A braai is what you might consider a barbeque; however, while most people use gas, electricity or charcoal to fuel the fire, South Africans almost always use wood (charcoal is sometimes considered cheating). Furthermore, the cultivation of the fire using *wood is considered a true art form. Usually, the host of the braai is in charge of tending the fire and with that comes great responsibility. Guests often hover around the braai with a glass of wine, a beer or sometimes even a brandy and coke. The “braai master” turns the meat on the grill.
