Braaiing is to South Africans what singing is to the Irish. It's not just a fun pastime of tinkering with tongs over an open fire — getting it right is our patriotic duty. There's a science behind the perfect cut, marinade, braai technique and even posture, which is why the Weber Grill Academy is always a good idea, even if you already consider yourself a whiz behind the grill. You can take lessons in flavouring, fish and chicken braaiing, side specialties, hot-coal bread baking and even mielie roasting. A simple beer and a braai at your pad will soon be the must-attend event in town. Like popping over to Jamie Oliver's for a light lunch of pasta and salad.
