Its been a whole year since we imported our first braai from Johannesburg and what a year it has been! We’re still here, getting our braai on but a few things have changed…
South African authenticity, British build quality
The progression from importing braais to manufacturing them from scratch here in the UK was an easy step to make. The Braai Man now has the freedom to make design alterations to suit the customer’s needs as well as the ease of availability and delivery here in the UK. We know the exacting standards to which we manufacture by and can trace the origin of our materials and labour. Oh and no more worrying about stock on the open seas for weeks and volatile exchange rates….whurraahhh!
Over the last year we introduced the 800 model for the smaller scale braaier and received great feedback from you guys saying that it fitted really nicely into your gardens, whether it was in expansive grounds or a confined patio space. The big 1200 model is going as strong as ever and is favoured by Saffas living here in the UK.
Braai catering was hugely successful over 2015, as we brought South African braaing to the Great British public. Using locally sourced and in season produce, we revelled in bringing you the best cooked meat and fish in the country, all outside, over seasoned British hardwood for that smoky flavour.
The big do of the Summer was the Feast in the Field, where we managed to raise £3000 for George’s Trust and Alzheimer’s Society combined. A four course celebration of British meat and fish was laid on and many a pint of Dorset ale was drank! A special thanks goes to all who helped out with the event including Willy Edwards, who is now notorious in Hampshire for throwing the best post-harvest parties around! Sandy (mole valley model) also warrants a mention, who regularly helps out when The Braai Man is in need.
We hope that the second year of business will go much the same as the first, with a few surprises for you guys along the way. Keep following our progress onFacebook and Instagram and be sure to look out for the next product launch….The Argentinian Asado Cross. Thanks for your support during our first year in business and long may it continue!
