How to braai? What do I need besides the meat?
Besides the meat?
Even if you´re based in a two bed hut without any crockery/cutlery,
you will find that indigenous, basic Kruger-Braai-Facility: The three-pod-braai-center.
Additionally, you will only need 1 aluminium-pot, 2 plastic-bowls,
some aluminium-foil, your own outdoor-cutlery & plates, one barbecue-tong.
Spices at your own gusto, oil and vinegar.
And some sun-downer, like gin-tonic, coke&bourbon (famous grouse whiskey for me!!)
That´s it basically.
I prefer one bigger squarish plastic-bowl (transport of barbecue-tools, vegetables & for washing up) and a round one in the size of a salad-bowl.
A good choice of meat can be purchased in all Kruger-Shops.
Also fresh vegetables, potatos and tinned food.
(I believe, your´re aware of that)
Prepare your fire with wood - my opinion.
Don´t use charcoal. Acacia is my favour!
Can be purchased in almost every Camp-Shop.
It´s pretty easy to fix the time, you can start to put the meat on:
Let 5-10 minutes go, after the fire went down.
Before that - let the sundowners on stage!
Move the grid over the blaze as soon as possible - the grid will be sterilised in minutes.
(Don´t waste too much time in cleaning the grid before)
Now - If the grid needs a cleaning - use a clew of aluminium-foil and rub the dirt away.
If you like to have some potatos/corn with your meat,
start with cooking them on the grid in the aluminium-pot.
Check with knife or fork, if readily cooked.
Take the pot away and let the barbecue begin!
Now you will need the tong.
Don´t treat the meat with forks!
A good piece of beef/game will be done in 5 to 10 minutes each side.
I don´t like it well-done. 7-10 minutes for the whole piece is my gusto.
Sausages need more time - they must be well done.
I also tried to bake a simple bread in the last glow of the ash.
It needs some flour, water and salt.
Try it - delicious!
