How to prevent food from sticking to the braai

Do you ever have problems with your food sticking to the braai, here is the best method from preventing this from happening.

You have two options, oil the grate or oil the food.

Jamie believes that by oiling the grate a lot of it will simply drip off and cause flare ups, which you don’t want. The oil will also burn quickly leading to a rather unappetising burnt oil flavour on your food.

The best method is to oil the food and not the grill.

The grill however must be clean, this is the most important factor in preventing your food from sticking to the braai.

Some say he holds the world record for potatoes peeled in a minute. It is believed he set this record as a 6 year old while living at the ANC camp in Tanzania during the 1970's
