Springbok Nude Girls Neanderthal 1Time to get some bubblegum on your boots and come rock it out at Park Acoustics in May with arguably one of South Africa’s most influential 90’s rock bands. That’s right… The Springbok Nude Girls will be headlining at Park Acoustics on 22 May at the Voortrekker Monument.

They’ll be joined on stage by Grassy Spark, The Moths, Rambling Bones, Jack Mantis & Andre Geldenhuys, MoeJoe and more in what promises to be an EPIC 6th birthday celebration for Park Acoustics. Once the music dies down, the comedy line up will have you laughing while the sun sets with Vittorio Leonardi, Jason Goliath and
Robby Collins.

Sound like fun? Of course it does… head on over to http://www.parkacoustics.co.za/tickets/ and grab your tickets now!

Yes, you can bring your own booze and chow (but no glass please… security has been advised to get strict on this and they WILL confiscate any glass items)… but make sure to bring extra cash along if you’d like some of our Pulled Pork or Smoked Boerie Rolls… There’s also a bar to keep quench the thirst when you run out of your own drinks.

Alternatively, please feel free to bring your own meat and you can either braai it yourself, or I’ll do so for you… just look for Borries & I near the smoke wafting about above the stage.

We have a buddies poker group on Thursdays and besides the regular cigars & drinks, one of our rules is that everyone must bring snacks for the group. What started off as just biltong and packs of Simba, quickly escalated into a competition for who could bring the coolest snacks. Many of the guys stuck to biltong & chips, while others just got their wives to whip something up, but there are a few amateur foodies in the group… and this recipe comes courtesy of one such guy. So thanks Kobus… what an epic snack!

Does the beer make a difference in a beer can chicken?

3 Beer Birds

In a previous BraaiBoy TV episode, I made a bold claim that beer makes no difference when doing a beer can chicken. I claimed that you’re better off drinking the beer and then using an empty can to do your beer can chicken.

Beer-Can Chicken

3 Beer Birds Beer Bird DoubleMy buddies at BeerBird decided to help me put this to the test… Armed with 3 chicks; beers; BeerBird grids and identical spices, I set forth about proving my point.

 

To make sure everything was legit, I invited 4 buddies (Baas De Beer, Tyron, Wynand & Bobby) over as the judges. Check the video below for what transpired.


Just in case you missed that: A FULL BEER MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. Yes, The BeerBird way of doing chicken results in succulent, juicy chicken and crispy skin… but don’t waste your beer… Use an empty can in your grid and still impress your guests.

Park Acoustics March 2016 Banner

There’s no Park Acoustics in March… but fortunately that’s just because we’re going to be partying it up a week later on 3 April.

2016’s 3rd installment of Park Acoustics promises to, as always, bring you top quality acts from all over the country to the party bowl, also known as Fort Schanskop at the Voortrekker Monument. On stage you’ll be able to catch Gangs of Ballet, Thieve & Bam Bam Brown for their first Park Acoustics, as well as the legendary Guy Buttery, power trio Coelacanth and the ever growing Pop Art Live. As a bonus, please take note that this will also be Thieve and Guy Buttery’s new album launches.

We’ll be wrapping up the day’s festivities with some wicked laughs from Chris Forrest, Allyn Adams, Glen Bo and Umbillo Cream on the comedy stage.

Sound like fun? Of course it does… head on over to http://www.parkacoustics.co.za/tickets/ and grab your tickets now!

Yes, you can bring your own booze (but no glass please) and snacks… but trust me when I tell you to bring extra cash along: Borries & I will be on our posts (at the braai above the stage), ready to entice you with our now-famous Pulled Pork and Smoked Boeries, and the soon-to-be-famous smoked chicken wings. Alternatively, please feel free to bring your own meat and you can either braai it yourself, or I’ll do so for you.

If I’ve ever done a private party for you, there’s a very good chance I’ve made you a braai pie. Since 2010, it’s been one of my favourite recipes… but this time the savoury filling is replaced with  sweet filling and this epic side-dish becomes a dessert braai pie! You HAVE TO try this… #YUM!

Check out the #BraaiBoyTV episode below where I make one, or scroll down further for the printable recipe.

Feel free to experiment with your own dessert fillings, and let me know how it goes.
