I don’t think we need to tell you that braaing has become part and parcel of our day to day lives here on the tip of Africa.
Whether it’s a quiet one at home, a warm-up for a big Bok game or an excuse to sink many an amber ale, there’s something about the ritual that has become ingrained in how we go about enjoying this lekker country that we live in.
With that in mind we’re going to make one of you (and perhaps your father too) very happy, offering you the chance to win a Weber 57cm MasterTouch GBS Crimson Braai to the value of R4 300 ahead of Father’s Day on June 19.
This braai allows for various accessories to be inserted in the middle, such as the GBS Wok, GBS Pizza stone or GBS Sear Grate, which means it can perform each and every task you’re ready to throw at it.
Take a look at this beauty:
Now we love a funny or interesting braai story as much as anyone, which is why we’re asking you to send yours in and help us have a chuckle.
Don’t be shy to include a photo if you have one – it certainly won’t count against you.
You need to email your story to email@example.com with the subject line ‘Weber Braai Tales‘ – there is no recommended length so do your story justice.
To steer you in the right direction I’ll get the ball rolling with one of my favourites…
A while back, in my wild youth, some mates and I went away to a beach cabin for a weekend. Saturday we cracked our first beers early and began working on a late afternoon braai, although by the time it was ready to put the meat on we had sunk more than a few cold ones.
My mate G (to protect his identity we’ll leave it at that) decided he was going to spice up his steaks a little, and set about coating them in herbs and oil. He was also the first to grab his meat off the fire, and began chomping away.
His girlfriend, we’ll call her M, is a little daintier and gnawed lightly at hers. As G approached the halfway mark M said her steak tasted somewhat iffy, asking what spices and oil he had used.
He strode into the kitchen and grabbed the usuals – herbs, braai mix – but it was the oil that raised concern. He had somehow managed to coat his steak in citronella lamp oil rather than olive oil, a fault for which we have never stopped giving him stick.
This photo from way back when remains a favourite:
Braaiing at his place now consists of merciless mocking about mosquito bites and the like, although if his story had been used to win a lekker Weber braai I reckon it would have softened the blow.
Here are the dates you need to know so play close attention:
FRIDAY JUNE 10 – Competition closes
MONDAY JUNE 13 – Winner announced
SUNDAY JUNE 19 – Father’s Day
So go on, tell us a your favourite Weber Braai Tale and you could win a cracking Weber 57cm MasterTouch GBS Crimson in time for Father’s Day.
