Secrets of a Perfect Braai Fire
Do you know the secrets to preparing a perfect fire and braai?
Our friends at Weber (Weber braais and accessories sold in-store at West Pack Lifestyle and West Pack Express stores across South Africa) shared some of their secrets with us.
Try combining woods as you get more experienced for unique and flavourful results.
Use tongs and barbecue mitts to add charcoal, turn meats, refill the water pan or adjust the vents.
Do not use charcoal infused with starter fluid as it can add an unpleasant taste to your smoked foods.
EXPERIMENT WITH WOOD
Experiment with different woods and meats until you find the right combination for your taste.
