Been braaiing so much, flippen lekker.

One thing I haven't braaied yet are some ribs. I need some suggestions for good rib braaing procedures...on a traditional braai, not weber or anything.

Cheers.

Would be pork or beef. Pork more than likely.

I’m about to upgrade my BBQ facilities.

I don’t post very often but have been following this thread for years as I’m a very keen outdoor cook. Lit the BBQ over 30 times last summer which is my gauge for how good a season we’ve had (this might not sound much to Saffers but it’s not bad for the NE of England)

I don’t do any smoking or low and slow stuff, it’s all pretty much direct heat grilling.

The 2 things I most want to add in my upgrade is an adjustable height grill (preferably 2 different grill heights side by side - so some sort of ‘Santa Maria’ affair. I would also like the facility to fix a rotisserie on and off the grill when I fancy that type of cooking.
Lastly it needs to be portable rather than built in so I can wheel it to different parts of my courtyard.

Suggestions welcome

All on the same day because heavy rain kept extinguishing it?

If you have a Weber kettle there are a number of Santa Maria accessories floating around the net which look effective.

Geelstert on the coals is lovely too. Braai it like snoek, but beware not to overcook otherwise it is dry.
