We are so fortunate in South Africa that we can braai with coals created from burning wood. In so many countries you aren't allowed to braai on an open fire and if you are a real braaier then you would agree that a braai on gas just isn't a braai. It's also so much more than just a braai. It's about the socializing around the fire. Enjoying a drink and a chat with friends and family while the fire is crackling away. Getting the fire going again afterwards for a lekker kuier fire or to just sit and stare into. Plus a wood fire makes the best braai because it gives the meat that extra bit of flavor. It is weekend time... Braai time.
