The South African Braai, what is it all about?

 

 


If they say in South-Africa, « ons gaan braai! » you better get yourself over there!.
A Braai event in South Africa is not only about barbecue with family and friends, it's a cultural event to unite around a fire, to grill, cook, drink and live together!
South Africans live close to there roots and that's what the Home fires Braai is all about.

With the Home Fires Braai, any cooking method comes into reach; grilling, smoking, slow cooking, planking, baking pizza or bread, cooking in a dutch oven or potjie, cooking in a wok, grilling on a rotisserie, searing, grilling on a plancha, really it is all possible! No other barbecue is as versatile as the Home Fires Braai, manufactured by a small family factory in South Africa and brought to you by LM30 Lifestyle! In your garden, your patio, near your pool, mobile, on the road or camping, in your poolhouse or even indoors, the back to basics ambiance of grilling on a wood fire can be experienced all year long, yes even in wintertime!


The whole Braai experience start with the ember maker. You start your Braai fire in the ember maker, and the braai will provide you with an endless supply of nice hot embers unlike any other barbecue.
Pending on how much heat and power you need, you shuffle the hot glowing embers left or right, under your grill or oven or above the drawers of the braai. You can also leave them under the ember maker, the central fire will heat the surrounding oven or drawers enough to be able to slow-cook your recipes! Thanks to the circulating heat of the central braai fire, you don't only grill direct, but your ingredients are equally heated by indirect heat, avoiding black burned - raw inside chicken legs for example ;-)
The central fire does not only heat your food, it also heat's you and your friends surrounding the Braai! No more cold summer nights and even in wintertime you will experience the cosy heat and pleasures of a mid-winter barbecue event with friends!

The Home Fires Braai is available in different models, like free-standing, build-in, a huge triple XL Braai for events, with or without electric driven rotisseries and also in smaller mobile models for camping, tracking, hiking or to use on a small city centre balcony or rooftop!
Anyone will find his Braai and if you still have doubts, please visit our showroom in Burgundy where almost all models are exposed and , very often, lighted to enjoy the Braai experience!

Well, you might have guessed it, you don't have any excuse anymore to create your own Braai hotspot for yourself, family and friends, and I'm pretty much sure the braai will be as addictive to you as it is for us!

Braai giant build-in wood fired barbecue, oven and smoker

 

De Braai is realy versatile and multi-functional!

 

At a first glance, most people don't believe that almost any cooking method can be used on the south-African braai. But remember, the basics of cooking is heat, and this heat has been gathered by humanity over wood fires for thousands of years. With the available accessories for your Home Fires Braai, you can transfer this heat for direct or indirect radiation, or (in)-direct contact by the use of a plancha, potjie, Dutch oven, traditional oven, pizza or bread baking stones, wood planks or by using the drawers of your braai.

The Braai oven is almost an essential accessory as you can use it as a hot smoker, slow cooker or traditional oven for which I recommend a pizza baking stone. I might be pushing my luck, but I would also recommend the rotisserie. Simply because it is so simple in use and it will bring you an endless flow of magnificently good grilled jucy chickens and any other piece of meat! In case you like grilling fish or other sensitive ingredients like seafood or vegetables, I also recommend some cast iron or stainless steel griddles or plancha's. Need some advice? Please don't hesitate to contact us, we love to share our passion!

*For the installation of any Braai indoor, we strongly recommend you to con tact a local professional, to make sure you apply to all local security directives and legislations. LM30 Lifestyle cannot be held liable for any consequences of the installation or use of the Home Fires Braais.
