South Africa’s saucy record-breaker

All Gold aims to braai the longest boerewors ever.

South Africans are turning their passion for braais into a SA-beating event that will set two new SA-records.

2 records:

The first will burn down a new record for the longest boerewors ever braaied to the length of a whopping 1km of tasty meat.

The second record could get even more entertaining, as thousands of people try to sauce the kilometer of sizzling Boerewors in a mere three minutes.

The braai:

The South African record-breaking braai happening on the 9th of November at Fourways Crossing Shopping Centre in Johannesburg.

A master-butcher along with some of SAs favorite celebs have been recruited to create the whopper, binding several lengths of boerie casings together to make one mammoth piece of meat, weighing in at 1.3 tons.

It will be driven to the centre in a refrigerated truck and carefully unloaded onto a custom-made braai designed specifically for this South African Record attempt, with 52 braai bases welded together.

A 32m long braai is guaranteed to get the any South African itching to grab the braai, so All Gold has assembled a team of 13 well-seasoned braai masters and 30 assistants. 13 expert fire starters and stokers will also be in the line of fire to ensure the heat is just right. 

Making it official:

SA Book of Records will be the official adjudicator, to make sure that the marathon piece of meat and the saucy antics of our supporters are officially recorded and confirmed.

Get in on the action:

You can get an invitation for yourself and your friends by liking us on the All Gold SA Facebook page.

All Gold will also be hosting 50 children from the Johannesburg Children’s Home to share in the excitement.
