    Sommer so.
    There have been many times I had to light with newspaper. Mostly because I forget to buy firelighters. So it's not all lost on my generation.

    Some newspaper balls, thin pieces of wood and voila.

    I let the fire do that, it's burning already anyway. Why waste more time and energy on such things. I've got better things to do, like drink 12 bottles of brandy before the braai Ons gaan nou braai....

    I have never had gippo guts from a dirty braai grid. My stomach was made by Falkirk.

    Place dirty grid over hot fire, then I use a steel paint scrapper to clean the old burnt fats. Works better than a brush.

    If I do, it's either with a Weber brush or with the flat side of half an onion.

    A fellow member relates this story.

    He had a very drunk overseas guest at his home for a braai (the guys first). My mate thoroughly cleans the grid with half an onion and leaves the onion on the corner of the grid while he fetches the meat. He gets back to find his drunk guest devouring the onion proclaiming how good it was.

    Discard cleaning onions immediately .

    Save the tea bags, dry them out, place them in an old ice cream container and toss in some paraffin, not enough to soak them, just make them damp. Great firelighters.

    Funny though, fire-lighters these days are less expensive than most newspapers except the free community ones which are stuffed with adds on shiny paper which aren't good for anything..

    Weird world.
    We also only used newspaper, called it a Vaalie braai. Yet, when we moved from N Natal up to Gauteng never saw a Transvaaler use it...must be another legend my dad cooked up

    been doing this for years, but I don’t really drink tea, I used to have the maid dry her teabags for this purpose. Now, thanks to COVID, I no longer have a maid, and I braai more often than I drink tea...... so now I use a cadac gas fire starter.....

    If you stay in a village with unpaved roads you need to clean the grid. Think fat and dust. Teeth grinding experience.

    I dont so I am good to go. Bacteria and other gallies die at temps in excess of 65c. On the Weber after just adding the hot coals and with the lid on, I get 200+c and leave it like that for up to 15 minutes. Then brush down the stubborn areas that havent melted off the grill

    In the bush I just burn the mild steel grid and bang it afterwards on something hard.

    At home I clean the Stainless Steel grid in my home made rooster bad. Just love a klean as new and shining clean Stainless Steel grid.
