Braai Quotes

Braai Quote
Braai Quote

If you ever meet me around a fire, you may hear me ask “Wat is lekkerder as Braai?” To which the correct answer is “Rond Braai!”. However, there are a few other guys out there with equally cool braai quotes.

The first would have to be Adam himself:  “Spare rib anyone?”, and even the good Mother Theresa felt she needed to weigh-in: “Braaing is a net of love by which you can catch souls.”

And William Shakespeare getting all philosophical on us: “It is better to have burnt and lost, than never to have braaied at all”.

Then David Brinkley, gives us some advice when “life throws you a lemon” so to speak: “A successful man is one who can build a braai with the bricks others have thrown at him.”.

Afraid of Trying? George Edward Woodberry has some advice: “Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have braaied is the true failure”.

On the topic of trying: “Good braaing comes from experience, and experience, well, that comes from poor braaing” – Cousin Woodman.

Something to think about: “I braai, therefore I am” – Rene Descartes.

The theory of relativity was nothing compared to what Einstein says here: “Learn from yesterday’s braai, live for today’s braai, hope for tomorrow’s braai. The important thing is not to stop questioning why people would boil ribs”.

Ah, but of course: “Braaing is the answer, but while you’re waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty good questions” – Woody Allen.

Who would care to question one of the biggest gangsters of all time? “You can get more with a kind word and a braai than you can with a kind word alone” – Al Capone.

“There are three great friends: an old wife, an old dog, and ready braai”… and that comes from one of the US founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within our braai” – Ralphn Waldo Emerson.

Voltaire must have known I’d be coming: “If braaing did not exist, it would be necessary to invent it”.

“Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t yet arrived. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be braaing in it.”, said Groucho Marx.

And Buddha? This is what he had to say: “A braai that is developed and put into action is more important than a braai that exists only as an idea.”

and Buddha leaves us with this too: “Even death is not to be feared by one who has braaied wisely.”.

Cool Braai Pics – June 2010

As I go through all the pics I’ve taken, I come across some really cool pics. Many of them it’s just me making a small fire for myself, but even some of those make me smile 🙂

When I start posting pics on a regular basis in future, all of them will get a fair chance of being found, but when I eventually get all of the last 14 months’ pics uploaded to the web, they’re going to get lost among all the noise, so I thought I’d dedicate this post to some of my favourites.

Hot Chicken Wings

When chicken lost its vegetable status, I started doing either chicken wings or chicken breasts. Being so fond of chili I started doing a LOT of “hot chicken wings”. Some butchers call them “buffalo wings”, others “spicy wings” and there are many other names, but the gist of it is a spicy (often very hot) chicken wing. If you love your chili as much as I do, then this is one recipe you need to try out.


If you have any of your own ideas, or just want to let me know how your experience of this recipe went… leave a comment in the reply section below or feel free to give me a shout at any time.

Braai Pie


Man Alive!

You have not eaten until you’ve eaten a braai pie. I LOVE a fresh pie (not the dodgy garage pies one tends to buy in a drunken state at 3 am) and I LOVE to braai… so how I haven’t come across this in the last how many years of my adult life, I have no idea.

But thanks to a friend of mine, Cara Vosloo, I was introduced to the wonder that is the Braai Pie. The concept is fairly simple: you take puff pastry, fill it with bacon, cheese and other bits and braai it… YUM! I’ll be posting the full recipe with some more pics in the recipe section of the site fairly soon.

Trust me folks when I say: You have to try this one!

Update: I’ve uploaded the full recipe here:

Good luck, and let me know how it goes in the comments below, and please feel free to browse my Braai Recipes for more of my favourite braai time recipes.

Update: SpiceGirl and I recently filmed the making of a Braai Pie, you can check it out over here: Braai Pie Recipe Video

Update: There’s a DESSERT Braai Pie recipe as well!

Posted on is launched


I Amb can’t believe I’ve A been braaing non-stop now for just over 14 months.

Actually I can: I need to eat every cheap jerseys day and I love to braai, so why not braai instead of cooking tamilnadu food in an oven or microwave, or ordering it from the local take-away? What I REALLY can’t believe is that it’s taken me this long to cheap nba jerseys launch, especially since one of my day Auction jobs revolve around developing web sites and web applications. I guess it’s a case of the shoemaker’s kids not having any shoes???

Anyway, I’ve been promising everyone that I’d have the site launched (shortly after cheap nba jerseys starting my quest) and they could follow my adventures as I went along… and wholesale nfl jerseys I finally made good on that promise 🙂

The site is still far from “complete”, but if I waited until I was entirely happy with it, I was never all-new going to get around to it. The biggest thing I’m working on right now is collating 14 months’ worth of images, labeling them and uploading it (a couple of GB’s worth :-)) onto Flickr. Once that’s done, I’ll be adding some recipes, jokes (if I can remember them), even a video or two of some cool party tricks that you can use at your next braai, and of course some random ramblings of me and my adventures.

So folks, here’s a toast to going live… go out and tell all your friends, and please feel free to keep coming back for more.
