Best braai items for under R100

Braai Information

Two days ago a journalist asked me what the 10 best braai items are that you can buy for under R100. Instead of simply giving her my own view I decided to use the collective braai wisdom of many South Africans and posted the question on Twitter. The question looked like this:
@janbraai: What is your favourite braai item for under R100?

If your name is Liam Beattie then this is what you can do with R20 steelwool and an old broomstick.

And the answers looked like this:

  • martin_ras Martin Ras: die rooster.

  • MichelleKang Michelle Kang: Actually, short ribs
  • pietstreak pieter streak: beer?
  • bernarddeclerk BERNnard de clerk: If it’s over R100 it’s almost not a braai item anymore. Jimmy’s and Wine is on my list.
