    1. It has always been the case Cady!
      In South Africa, a braai (plural braais) is a barbecue or grill and is a social custom in much of Southern Africa. The Afrikaans word braaivleis means grilled meat.

      The traditions around a braai can be considerably different from a barbecue, even if the method of food preparation is very similar. Due to the traditional activities that occur around a braai, many South Africans would argue that having a braai is much better than having a barbecue.

      While wood was formerly the most widely used braai fuel, in modern times the use of charcoal, briquettes and gas (gas braai) has increased due to their convenience.
