Wattle Wood

Black & Green Wattle wood is commonly used for braaing and pizza ovens. This wood is easy to ignite and burns at a nice tempreture. Did you know?  The Wattle tree is also seen as a "weed" in the farming community. This tree forms dense thickets that puts a threat on vegetation.

Rooikrans Wood

Rooikrans is one of the favoured types of wood in South Africa. Rooikraans has a long burning coal that is perfect for potjies with some help from charcoal. Did you know?  Rooikrans is also a type of Wattle Tree. Some other names for this wood are red-eyed wattle and western coastal wattle.

Kameeldoring Wood

Kameeldoring is one of the best types of wood to cook with. This wood has a very long lasting coal that put out a high tempreture. This wood is often used in spit braais.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions about braaing. If you have any questions, please give us a call.

Answer: There are many ways to light the fire. Everyone's preference will vary - but between newspaper, Blitz or gas. Gas is always going to gaurentee you the best result.
Answer: If you are doing MasterChef and want to have a BBQ, gas would be that option. BUT  if you would like to create a great atmosphere and have a great time - We suggest to use wood.
This all depends on what you are looking to braai. If you are looking to have a spit braai, start off with Wattle to get the fire going and change over to Kameeldoring.
If you are going to have a potjie, you could use Wattle wood and change over to charcoal.
If you are just doing to have some wors or looking to tan a chop, Wattle wood will be best.
Ventation is the most important. Using a coal maker in a built-in braai tends to not give much oxygen.
Building a fire using the 'Log Cabin' style provides much more air, keeping your fire going.
