Ps if you guys are lazy Ms Balls have a new ready marinade out... nice smokey wood taste.
Credibility-meter just hit zero and returned a "too low to compute" error. Mrs Balls up should stick to chutney...

:sick:

Pfft, have you tried it?

Also please remember we are not all DJK ;)
A man must make his marinade and braai his own meat. Rule number 32 of the "braai like a boer" handbook. :D

And no, I wouldnt want to try it. Do you honestly think that they use wood-chips to give the smokey-flavour? Its imitation hickory that they use. Although I will concede that to make a smokey flavoured marinade is not the easiest thing in the world.

And surely the point of this thread is to learn from everyone else? Heck, I've picked up one or two tips/suggestions already. I'm not belittling you for not going to culinary school, hell I only did it for 6 months, but all I am saying is that there are ways to do things differently and often better - I merely suggested a few. Don't take it personally Beelzebub...:D You take your braaing serisouly - at least you are abiding by rule #2...

Also have any of you ever tasted chutney-boerewors?

I sometimes use the same one I use for a butterfly'ed leg of lamb - basically greek yogurt, chickpeas, coriander, lemon juice, mint, and garlic . . .

I like to make a tzatziki type base, then add whatever flavours I feel like for the day. Its not always mint though. Sometimes mint/coriander combo with cumin, roasted coriander seeds, tamarind, garlic, white wine vinegar, honey and a touch of soy and fish sauce as well (works with lamb too). I use this one for braaing. I leave out the soy, fish sauce and vinegar if I am roasting or frying them as I like to keep the mixture as a sauce - the soy/fish sauce/vinegar dont make for a good sauce with the tzatziki :eek:

Quick tip for lamb: cut an onion in half and rub the open side all over the lamb before adding any additional flavours. It adds incredible flavour if you are braaing it because of the sugars in the onion and its naturally strong flavour which compliments lamb nicely. This works for a leg of lamb too...;)

Another good tip when you make a dressing for a lamb salad (don't hate me Bwana) - is to add a nice sweet rice wine vinegar to the mixture - then dress the salad with this mixture - really, really nice!!!!!
