Last Sunday afternoon I was in the mood for a braai, as men quite often are, so I packed 6 pieces of charcoal in the Mbaula Green's clay liner & 20mins later my braai was ready. Whilst sitting on my patio, staring at the Mbaula Green in amazement of how hot the clay becomes, I was reminded just how convenient braaing on the Mbaula Green is. Life has become such a rush and time a precious resource. How often do you braai during the week? I, very seldom..that's before I had the Mbaula Green of course. It's not that we don't want to braai during the week, we simply don't have the time to light a fire, two beers later and then only braai. by the time you're done braaing, you're the only one who's still awake.
There's something about a braai that we (esp. men and not excluding women) really enjoy and find relaxing. maybe it's that primitive instinct of lighting a fire that excites us? I don't know why we enjoy it but I do know; a braai a day keeps the doctor at bay - regardless of the cholestrol! Perhaps it's the opportunity to sit and relax whilst pretending to be busy?
So while I was sitting there on the patio, I realized that in the midst of our busy schedules and the pace at which life goes, down-time is a must have. The beauty of the Mbaula Green is that braaing does not only have to be a weekend luxury, the Mbaula Green makes braaing quick, convenient and cheap. I only use 6 pieces of charcoal to braai my lamb chop, chicken or boerewors. The efficiency of the Mbaula Green allows me to braai during the week without having to beg the others to stay awake and just enough time for me to relax and enjoy the braai!
Who said braaing was just for weekends anyway?
