Words you will hear today: Braai

If you are lighting up the grill this Heritage Day, Talk Radio producer, Jonathan Fairbairn offers some advice for those who are not experienced around the braai.

Here is your Braai Day 101:

  • Don't be a backseat driver: Don't be the person advising the Braai Master on what to do.
  • Don't throw cigarette stumps into the braai.
  • Make sure the Braai Master is hydrated.
  • A coal or wood braai are essentials.

It's a big no-no to invite people over for a gas braai. You can use a gas braai when it's quick and convenient, but not if you are going to have a large group of people over.
