"50 Ways to clean up your braai"

Unread postby Goronta » Sat Mar 30, 2013 4:39 pm

During my first visits to Sanparks 15 years ago, I tried to look at my South African neighbours in the rest camps to learn how they would clean their braai before or after they 've used it :hmz:
And finally I found the solution ...
Very easy ! So simple ! :wink:

I think I know what you are going to say Goronta .... Birds are cleaning it? :lol:

You are right, but .... I must say, the cleaning ladies do such a brilliant job with cleaning the braais the next day, that there will not be much left for the birdies! :thumbs_up:

We then clean the grid from all the debris that blew over it during the day, by putting it over the high flames when the fire is started, and rub it clean with Carlton paper! :D

Hmm? Birds eat the stuff you leave behind. Just check that you don't eat the stuff the birds leave behind. :whistle:
