Ready to braai? Here are some hacks that you did not know about


Put dried-out teabags in a bottle and fill half the bottle with paraffin. The teabags soak up all the paraffin and are excellent firelighters. Another natural resource: pine cones. Now you have no excuse not to have a blazing fire.


There’s nothing like the frustration of struggling with wet wood. Try this next time; sprinkle plain white sugar over your stack and light with Blitz. The sugar burns at a high temperature so you increase the internal temperature of the stack. Science!


Lemons come in very handy around a braai. Not only are they great at getting rid of grease from previous braais but a squeeze on just-braaied boerewors or lamb chops brings out all the flavour. When life gives you lemons, save them for the braai.
