Good to see you actually found a braaier to braai on. When we lived in Bavaria back in '87, such things were scarcer than a  pole-small in Baghdad. As they say, 'n boer maak 'n plan. We dug up a patch of the flowerbed in front of our apartment and had a good old OM beach braai. The grill rack from the oven worked very well, as did a couple of bricks to keep it up.


Of course the neighbours thought  23_146_26.    Diese verdamten Auslaender... 202

@ Dunja

I see jnr has not replied, so short from me

Yes meat was always more expensive here, of course taking the exchangerate in account, its even more for you.

Prices differ also, pending on the shop where you buy.

Have a nice weekend

@ Carl

Thats right, no tolerance for Braii smoke, in fact in city not permitted at all

Jnr is better off living in a village with own garden, no problem there

On my place no fires allowed, high concentration of flats. on the balcony not tolerated by the neighbours

It must be terrible. I understand the population density plays a huge role, as do the stricter environmental laws you guys have. We lived in a small village where everybody more or less did their own thing, so we werent bothered too much by the strict legislation.

Got used to it by now....

Occasionaly i use the electric grill for a chicken roast or saussages, already that smell may be off problem, but i dont care since its not often like we dit in O-mund up to 3 times the week

People dont grill any more over the open fire, so what do i need a fire for ? heat is enough.
I prefer the meat from the fire, taste is better, but supposed to cause cancer, that may be the high rate of cancer in O-mund  idontknow

The cancer problem lies in the burnt bits on the meat. The solution: First  36_1_72  then   BierSuip

Jnr, is meat still VERY expensive over in Germany?  Remember when we lived there in 1986 that we had the smallest Pork Chops and the tiniest of "worsies" to  braai...  Yikes theres nothing like a braai to make you homesick for SA!!!  Guess its the fact why we only lasted 8 months and then we were on a plane back to SA...

Back home and loving it !!! cat3

Pork chops cos between 5,oo and 7,00 Euro per kg. Sometimes more.
Sausages: 4,00 to 10:00 Euro. Depends on the the filling.
Nothing special. Just some clips I put in youtube.de

Regarding the braai meat issue, I'll be posting a new topic on this with my thoughts.
@ Carl - Ok, you might have a point - just see to it that the drink is red wine to help with removing the bad chemicals from the body! cheers

I read somewhere that the burnt bits contain the carcinogens. Similarly, the smoke created from the fat hitting the coals also contains trace elements of carcinogens. What a pity, because one of the best things about a braai is when somebody else is having one, and the odour drifts over in your direction.

I bought meat from Jip n Jol in The Somerset Mall whilst in CPT to braai.... I have never rated the Cape Meat compared to the Namibian stuff.... the following pkt of Wors was smothered in SPice, cannot taste the meat.... The Pork belly tastes like too much water.... but I have to admit those ribbetjie things were damn nice.....

Well perhaps buying meat at Pick 'n Pay is not such a good idea to begin with.  I once bought a whole chicken, which was huge and was R58.  This was to feed 4 people but by the time it had finished cooking it looked like an anorexic chicken, which was only good to feed 1 1/2 people.  The chicken was injected with so much water, which all ended up in the oven dish by the time the cooking process was over.  Have never really gotten quality meat at Pick 'n Pay and would prefer to go to a butcher.

Just my 2 cents worth ...  ha ha

we built ourselves a "binnebraai" outside. Now we can always braai if we feel like it (it always rains in holland) We even braai in the winter. (just when we need that South African feeling) I buy my choppies at a turkish butcher. Much cheaper and very good
