Bomfire sounds like a bonfire rather than a braai, and what's wrong with being concerned with local air quality or even your carbon footprint? You also mentioned "saffas" being pathetic so who are the other pathetic sa posters?

Anyway, back on topic - any suggestions for a good fish that's available in the western Cape for the braai?

Bom fire. I learned from my Struisbaai neighbour, making them. He lit the bom fire at 15h00 and we can only start braai from 20h00.
Mmm....that must do wonders for his carbon footprint and the local air quality.
8-Eye and his fellow Trump supporters don't believe in Global Warming.
Now I know the world is going crazy. Saffas complaining that a braai causes global warming. Pathetic. :lol:

I have invited a friend around for a braai and to watch the rugby tomorrow afternoon.
Our first braai in the Windy City.

While the Stormers are beating the Hurricanes I'll braai bacon wrapped cherries, jalapeno poppers and satay chicken.

Then steak, pork rashers and lamb chops. Coleslaw and baked potato with sour cream.

Should be fun.

Nipper enjoys fancy cooking so chilli could just cook a nice meal in the oven and they should be fine. He just needs to make sure he uses the latest new fancy gadgets. A normal old bredie wont impress Nipper much.

First, sort out your margins FFS!

Second, I love it, but haven't done it myself. Was at a wedding in Greyton end of 2019 and the mains was fillet with marrow. I finished mine and half of my wife's, was awesome.

Its very easy...you buy the bones and then scrape all the flesh off the outside of the bone and give that to the dogs...you then soak them in salt water for 20 minutes and throw on the coals with some seasoning on it....the soaking also bleaches the bones to get that whitish finish...I sliced an old burger roll into thin slices and then threw it on the coals for a short bit so not to burn...you take a clove of garlic and scrape it onto the bread to spread it like butter ...( its toasted so rough )...then a sprinkle of olive oil for effect
