When the early Settlers in South Africa set out for uncharted territory, they had to live off the land. Game was plentiful in those days and a fire at night was not only companionable, but warded off unwanted visitors such as lion and hyena. The most perishable meats (organs like liver and kidneys) were eaten first, then the bigger cuts and whatever was left over, cured and dried to be enjoyed later.
South African men take their braai (as we call an outdoor barbecue) very seriously and woe the individual who overcooks the meat on the outside and leaves it raw inside. Chicken is a particular challenge, as it needs slow, even coals and fair dose of patience. Marinades are often a topic of debate, as each ‘braai-master’ will always claim his recipe as the best.
Directions: On a sunny day all over the country :-)
