Every Day is Braai Day with a Big Green Egg

September 24th is a day on which all South Africans are encouraged to celebrate our cultural heritage and embrace our diversity in true rainbow nation style. 

In keeping with that spirit, Braai Day is a celebration of our great country’s unique national pastime. Its aim is to unite all South Africans on Heritage Day by encouraging us to do something that is enjoyed by everyone regardless of background, religious beliefs or cultural differences –have a braai. 

South Africans are nothing if not hospitable, but as much as we’re adept at pouring drinks and refreshing chip bowls, we’re sorely lacking when it comes to getting the braai lit on time.  Fortunately this “African time” problem can easily be averted with the Big Green Egg as it’s ready to go in 15 minutes!

Since it hit our shores last year, the world’s most versatile braai has quickly grown in popularity. Manufactured from NASA engineered ceramics, this braai will never rust and the superior heat retention of the this ceramic construction means serving up mouth-watering steaks replete with those gorgeous grill crosshatch marks, crisp charred edges and juicy flavour just got a whole lot easier. 

The Big Green Egg is also the ideal way to warm smoke fish, game and meats. Simply add the wood chip that best suits your recipe.  Slow cooking can be undertaken with equal ease. Sit back and relax and leave the Big Green Egg to cook your shoulder of pork, ribs, beef brisket or leg of lamb to such juicy and tender perfection that the meat will literally fall off the bone. 

It doesn’t stop there however, in addition to searing and low and slow cooking for up to 10 hours, you can use your Big Green Egg to bake bread, make crispy crust pizzas and roast a succulent Sunday chicken. The only limit is your own imagination.

Foodies, chefs and top restaurateurs, including the World’s Best Restaurant, agree that the Big Green Egg is the Last Braai You’ll Ever Buy!
