Braai Woods

Baked by the South African sun to a moisture content between 0-1%, South African Firewood has the lowest moisture content of firewood logs available.  South African Logs provide an incredibly intense, long-lasting heat for your fire as a result of the extremely dense and highly calorific properties of this wood. Traditionally used for cooking on the braai, these firewood logs are suitable for use on a range of burning appliances. 

What is Braai Wood?

The word braai (plural braais) is Afrikaans for a barbeque or a grill and is a social occasion and custom in South Africa and some other countries in Africa, including, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, and Zambia. The term originally came from Afrikaans-speaking people but has since been adopted by South Africans of many ethnic backgrounds.

The word has been adopted by English-speaking South Africans and can be regarded as another word for barbeque, in that it serves as a verb when describing how food cooks and a noun when describing the cooking equipment, like a grill. The traditions around a braai are considerably different from a barbeque, though the method of food preparation is very similar.
