What is a braai?

So what's a braai? If you're from South Africa or if you've ever visited, you definitely know the answer to this question. Braai'ing is hardwired into our DNA. Essentially a braai is the same as grilling or having a barbecue, but when you do it the right way, its a braai. Some will say there are strict rules to follow to make it a braai, others, like us, will say all you need is a fire and some BOEREWORS!
