• What does ‘Braai’ mean?

Braai is the Afrikaans word for BBQ and it is a national pastime in Southern Africa. No matter if it is winter or summer, cold or warm days/evenings, with friends or just us as a family, we love braai’ing.

  • Why BBQ’ing with our braai wood is good?

Our wood has a very low moisture content, between 0 and 1%. Our BBQ wood is extremely dry and heavy which is why they burn for longer, compared to charcoal (very slow burning wood!) You will be able to cook for hours. Our premium African hardwood brings wood-fire flavours and creates delicious aromas. Also, they produce more heat, perfect for grilling your food or keeping warm around the firepit.

  • Is your wood eco-friendly?

Kameeldoring wood and Sekelbos BBQ wood are taken from dead branches that fall from the trees. They then dry naturally in the hot African Sun. Once the wood is harvested, it is cut into logs – no nasty binding agents like you find with charcoal. Our wood is also derived from sustainable resources.

  • Does wood burn longer than charcoal?

Wood typically burns longer than charcoal which makes it perfect for grilling a nice big cut of meat. Our Premium African hardwood (Sekelbos, Rooikrans and Kameeldoring) can burn for over an hour creating lovely hot coals which charcoal only burns for about a half-hour. You can cook more in one go.

Wood produces lots of heat as well. This burns hotter, making it perfect for grilling your food or keep warm around the fire on a chilly evening!
