When I stayed in Welgevonden I had a petrol drom and one of these R200 Game braaitjies. I just could not resist keep braaing in the R200 braai. Got full value out of him, sorry her. :o

Now I have a nice braai with a bar and lots of wood. Also a Dover but he (ai vok she) is something of a beaut. Not a braai, she have everything, bake, stove.

Wood fired cooking is becoming a big thing in restaurants of late...everyone is jumping on the bandwagon and I have some really interesting projects I am busy with. One involves Japanese style cooking on coals which is a total new one for me. I am busy discussing and designing it with research of course and I am looking forward to see it in action.

I have a Primo, which is an oval ceramic Komodo grill, it’s incredibly flexible and can literally cook any way you want from low and slow smoking to searing steaks. After 30+ years of cooking on various types of charcoal, wood and gas grills from various manufacturers, these ceramic Komodos are the best grill you can buy. Expensive but worth every penny. I’ll post a pic of my setup when I get home.

I struggle nowadays with gout after a weekend of braai. Use to pack in a braai chop and broodjie on Mondays in my kos blik. I love cold braai meat. But need to cut out this due to hectic gout. Gone are my biltong broodjie and piece of dry wors.

Man but we discovered a gem in Ina Paarman's sauces . Crazy about her pepper sauce.

Had pork chops and a rump with it this weekend.

Having perfected the braai-ing of the meats to a science we are now eating courgette spaghetti and cauliflower rice as we head into full banting mode for summer. Cutting out all breads, pasta and potatoe products. Lots of veg and salad.

Lots of hassle, too. Still, it works. I moved to a mainly Oriental style cooking to achieve something close.

I only use a few pills but only after attacks. I hate drinking pills. When I braai steak I'll take a few beforehand.

Protein and veg boet.....And lots of fat like in pork chop crackling.....

Nothing wrong with eating healthy and doing the braai thing......

Having done my pork chops so that the meat of the chop is juicy and tender and the crackling crunchy and melt in your mouth and my rump so that its perfectly medium rare and the meat tender you cannot argue .

the accessories are only there to balance your diet....

I just cannot wrap my taste buds around sweet potatie fries

Once again some of you are far too verkrampt when it comes to braai.

Stay away from this crap if you are banting. It is full of flour and preservatives.
Did I not give you a pepper sauce recipe?

Wonder if it is marketed here under a different name? We don’t eat it in NZ, but do export a fair amount to SA.

made this for my boys 10th birthday.
It has a nice wooden handle with his initials and birthdate engraved but I wanted him to have some chord to make it more a survival knife. Rather than your typical Bowie chopper.

At least you appear to live in a decent wine area!

I have a friend who has a Russian wife. We are trying to prize her out of their house I understand she is reluctant to do so as apparently her English is too bad.

I'd like to get back to learning more Russian and she would be ideal. There's no shame whatever in trying a foreign language. We have found having a go at it is invaluable when travelling.

I confess to struggling with Thai. Lots of laughter as it's tonal and you can make a lot of mistakes!

They were very forgiving when I tried to say how pretty a young lady was. I was given the "script" but mucked it up.

To this day, I'm not sure what I said but it had the assembly in tears.
