There is no recipe book, unfortunately.

If you do use the wood option make your dinner plans so that you can only start to cook 2 hours after the fire is lit. That is if you make a proper fire, which is also something you have to do. You then give yourself 2 hours to just sit and chat about the day and listen to the evening sounds of the bush.

The lead-wood you can buy in the shops are very hard and make for great coals and great tasting meat. :thumbs_up:

Ps. Do not put your hand into the nice soft ashes the next morning as you are bound to find a red hot coal still smouldering in there. :naughty:

Was in Kruger for 7 nights and braaied for 6 of them and also went through 6 bags of wood.
Back in England I don't get much chance to braai and it's also only charcoal so in the Kruger I braai as often as I can and only use wood.

Bit of a waste burning a whole bag of wood for two of us but it adds to the experience and all of the wood that I buy is normally bought at the camp shops. Never had an issue of them running out either.

Quality over quantity, do not disrupt or “direct” the Braaier from the comfort of your chair (too many cooks spoil the chops) and do not poke the boerewors on the ambers - the juices will run out.

The secret to a great braai, would be a good pair of tongs, a bag of dry hard wood, good company and a cold one.

Great advice on here! I've certainly been too impatient in my past braai attempts.
