I think that is the one Chilli was referring to. It is common in Brazil and you get it in all Brazilian churrascarias - barbecue restaurants. A really tasty cut. Do they have churrascarias in SA yet?

It's extremely important. Rest for about a third of the time (minimum) it took you to braai it.

Floor is paving at the moment, want to get a concrete floor with big, rough edge outside tiles.
Getting a roof as well.

First quote was R 180 000! :x :((

The first braai building response since my question :thumbup:

Agree. Often use it at home now on the braai and on the spit. Fantastic stuff. :thumbup:

Sirloin is a cut for'ard of the rump. Just as tasty.

I do not know about the churrascarias, Sorc might be able to tell you if they have them in Jo'Burgh. .
Looks like a good idea. although the Bosvelders think they know all about braai. Argentinians might teach them a thing or two, too ...

Moet 'n slag gaan LAANNNG vakansie hou, sonder internet. Kort dit, werk al jare sonder behoorlike rus.

Ok, to give an idea of where this braai area will go, here a photo of the property. It will go next to the pool at the back, and when looking at the photo, either on the right side or straight back extending out from around the middle of the pool. There would be a short paved walkway to the braai area.
Image

Couple options:

Something like the traditional braai - that would actually not require a walkway and would go to the right side looking at the photo
Image

Or maybe something like this but with a rectangular fire pit with seating around and then possibly a wooden pergola overtop:

I'd say go for both if space allows it. Men stand by the braai and the women a few meters away around the voete-braai.

The second option is the one that'll add value to your house, however it will hit your wallet early on too. :lol:

I reckon you should add a pizza oven beside the braai, they're all the rage at present.

Believe it or not, the the current state of those two in the photos, the second one would be cheaper...if I don't do the paving on the ground. Plan is to have pebble rock on the ground with the concrete seating a little further away allowing space for a few beach type chairs for seating closer in.

Good place to hide your biltong from the women/kids while you braai. :thumbup:

But now you have me thinking sandy....both is what I'll probably do.

The traditional braai in an area to the right of the pool and then at the back right of the yard under the trees a more traditional campfire fire pit with pebble rocks and nice seating around the fire. Yard is a good size so that area under the trees will be a good spot for that. :thumbup:

Boer maak a plan. :thumbup:

Just make sure you design the circular seating properly. Nothing worse than a bench where the seat is too narrow (like the one in your pic) and the backrest is vertical. Get a 60 degree slope going to be more comfy.

I'll actually avoid building the seating completely and have a nice big ring with pebble rock with the fire pit in the middle and nice chairs around it. Something like this:

That looks wicked 8)

You can build a circular fire-pit about 3 feet high without even using mortar. Some tan coloured concrete blocks would be easy to stack.

Yes. Rule of thumb is to rest it for half the time that you cooked it for.

Only repeating what these guys say. I breed and raise the stuff, strictly amateur slaughter - you are the cook/chef...

Exactly like the one I have now. I use it for a regular fire pit or when I use the spit. :thumbup:

I believe you said the same thing last time when I posted a pic of my current setup in front of my braai now and fangle had to set you straight then as well. The rocks we're talking about here are very smooth and don't hurt at all, in fact...feels bloody good under foot. :thumbup:

Very nice portable braai. I found a local guy here that visited SA and fell in love with the braai and has started building them as well. A little pricey though...
