Unlock the sizzle and celebrate the South African braai on National Heritage Day

Published Sep 20, 2023


South Africa's National Heritage Day, fondly known as "Braai Day," is a vibrant celebration that pays homage to the rich tradition of barbecue, bringing communities together over sizzling grills and savoury flavours.

The choice between gas, wood braais, and smokers is a personal choice.

Gas grills offer convenience and precision for quick meals and easy temperature control, perfect for weekday dinners and impromptu gatherings.

On the other hand, wood braais and smokers provide that authentic, smoky flavour, ideal for those who cherish slow-cooked perfection and traditional braai taste. Whether you prioritize speed or savour the art of smoking, the gas vs. wood debate adds flavour to your outdoor cooking journey. Elevate your grilling game by exploring all options to find your perfect match.
