Hi Micetta,

Louis is just joking. I don't often use a microwave, would rather make the food on the fire (well Louis does that). :whistle: I just pack a lot off stuff :big_eyes:

If you use it all, you are right if not, you have packed too much :lol:


Hi Micetta,
I promise you I use 99.9% off all the stuuf I pack. Pieter (my son) says we have to buy a trailor for the way I pack :redface: :lol: .

Thanks Hugh

THE BRAAI BOX!!!

Here you have it Ladies and Gents! It's the box braai! :dance: :dance:

I have read about it somewhere else on the forum and when I went to my favourite butchery in Pretoria they had it in stock and I decided to try it! This butchery is situated in Waverley, Pretoria and I recommend their boerewors. I have bought boerewors everywhere but theirs beat them all. If you like to try their boerewors please PM me and I will gladly give details! :thumbs_up:

A great concept indeed, it is compact (240mmx240mmx240mm), light and is made of pine-wood. Inside it consists of newspaper, Sekelbos (Sickle Bush) charcoal and a piece of fire-lighter! :thumbs_up:

Here is the box (Note the little man in the garden doing his thing! :lol: ):
Image

No more dirty hands, all you need is one matchstick:
Image

Do you remember this braai from the bush? :hmz: Note the fire is at the right place this round!
Image

It starts rather slow, but once it gets going there is nothing stopping it:
Image

After approximately 30 minutes:
Image

And then it was time to test the heat and quality of the coals.
First the beef (note my special marinade!)and chops:
Image

Then the pork:
Image

Then it was time for the tomato, onion and cheese bread:
Image

After the food was braaied the coals were still hot and could have done it all again! :clap: :clap:

Try it...it's a winner! :dance: :dance:

Theunis, great pics thanks.

I tried the Braai box, twice actually, the first time it worked like a dream, it was wonderful. I was alone at Croc Bridge and it was the answer.

The next night, was the first night I had ever met Bert, and I had another box and we were going to braai. Unfortunately, in the dark, I lit it in the wrong place :redface: It took ages to light and we had to resort to fire lighters to help it...... Silly me......... I think the first night I had got it right by pure luck, and only in the day light, the next day - when looking at my third box - did I see that there is a correct spot to light it...... (I still have not used my third box, am keeping it for next time).

so it is a wonderful invention just dont be silly like I was. :redface:

JenB, it seems that these boxes are more common than I have thought with you and Jazil using them as well! This was the first time I have ever seen one, but I will stock-up! :hmz:

Grannyb, a box like this costs only R20...it is a bargain! :thumbs_up:

We braaied and ate the boerewors on Friday evening! :lol: :lol:

Jazil, maybe the writing is new due to a few other similar mishaps! :thumbs_up:

You mean they really sell camelthorn, :big_eyes: Camelthorn is A PROTECTED SPECIE, sorry for shouting.

:wall: :wall: :wall:


The Camelthorn sold in the KTP and in the Western Cape comes from Namibia - where I believe only dead trees may be harvested - no live trees may be cut down. The wood is bone dry, so I assume the wood is from dead trees. Each load has to pass inspection in Windhoek, where it also is fumigated before allowed into SA.

No wood is removed from the KTP - and I am sure that Sanparks would not allow wood of dubious origin to be sold in the park.

So enjoy the benefit of an excellent firewood, while you can. :D

Something strange just happened. I have just received a "topic reply notification" on how to braai, via e-mail, but last post was made on 30/11/2009 :hmz:

Since on this topic, any fresh ideas or tried recipes?

Talking about braai, my sister and her husband from Tauranga, New Zealand visited us during December. The first thing on their menu was a braai with proper wood. Fortunately I had a couple of bags of Camel thorn tree wood and the family really enjoyed the smell of real South African wood. Apparently there are no braai wood in NZ which can compare with our SA hard woods.
