its a start @Steamy Tom
massive pity you used those donkiedrolla things, charcoal is better and wood is betterer
learn to pack your meat closer, like Tetris
don't be homophobic with your meat and another meat touching. Only @The_Ogre is allowed to do that coz he is a Cyclops.
:thumbsup: but otherwise Well Done and welcome to the club

I cycle through charcoal, briquettes, wood etc. Pick a new favourite every other week.

Been using "eco logs" lately and they're bloody fantastic. A lot less smoke, hot coals, they last a long time and very little cleanup. The only negative thing I can think of is that it's so consistent it can be "boring".

i am a briquettes guy, i like wood but it is messier and takes longer, i usually bulk order some bags and keep them in the garage to be used.

yeah in the cape we cannot use briquettes coz one swoop of wind and you have dandruff flying all over the place and sticking to the meat.
so its either charcoal or wood

Winds like today!
very breezy indeed, i think i am going to make a lunch braai today for a change seen as my neighbours are usually away during the day on Sundays. Less smoke in their face
Will experiment with my Pita Bread PIzzas again

thanx
neighbours just arrived home 20 minutes ago, guess they got blown away visiting the inlaws as is their Sunday tradition.
if they do not go out again today then I am going to have to cancel todays braai due to this storm brewing here.
it would be very unfair to make a fire with them right next to me (joys of living in a flat).
They have been very understanding this month to Fanies memory and I would hate to spoil it now.
(as it is we have a no braai policy on our balconies)

Lets see how the day pans out

the bylaws state it, but the body corporate does turn a blind eye as long as the smoke doesn't annoy others and that we use charcoal or briquettes, they do not wanna see 1 metre wood burning flames on our enclosed tiny balconies :)
