    We have the one in the original post. Not a fan. It is hard to clean. It is also quite big and we always seem to struggle getting it in the right place above the coals. Prefer a simple grid with folding legs or the triangle, which gives height adjustment options. Also prevents use of wheel cover with storage bag. And easy to steal.

    We cooked eggs on the “skillet” side - worked ok.

    It does look good though..

    But my question is, who actually uses theirs?
    And when? Why would you use it above a normal braai stand and folding grid?

    Give me some reason why I must use it! Please?

    Is it not always full of sand and dust.

    No. Sand, dust AND exhaust smoke.

    I think you are not using it correctly. You do not "use" such a grid by cooking upon it. You "use" it by posing next to it for an Instagram post.

    Without such a grid your replacement front bumper will look out of balance in your shots

    Sorry gents, I have the frontrunner braai grid on my vehicle, have probably used it 50 times, I absolutely love it. The flat part can be turned upside down, perfect for breakfast, steaks etc

    But in all fairness Ive never cleaned it, as in personally, im sure its a mission to clean....just not my mission....

    We have one that came with our vehicle. I'm not sure I would have bought it, but now that we have it we use it all the time. We've done 50,000kms, not stolen yet. For cleaning I use a quick 15 seconds with a wire brush, put it on the fire until it's nice and hot, and then another quick brush if it's extra dirty and we're good to go.

    I confess I don't think I've ever cleaned with soap/water. Just wire brush and fire, and so far the only times we've had sandy food is when I've been lazy cleaning it.

    I like that it stores outside, whereas the braai grid we keep in the back and can be greasy/dirty up against stuff. Also the braai grid is more fiddly when getting to the right height, and you have to cook everything the same way. Whereas the wheel braai you can move things around to hot or cool or whatever as they need it.

    We use both, but the wheel braai more often I think. However all that said I think the average South African has much more braai experience than I do, perhaps you are more discerning than me.
