One of the most awesome gifts I received this Christmas was the ultimate braai from Chantelle, an absolutely brilliant piece of metal craftsmanship that now proudly adorns our outside area at the back of the pad. Of course, it did come with a tin of paint, a paintbrush and some turps as added extras (which Chantelle wrapped to the extreme), but now that I’ve deftly applied those gifts to the primary gift yesterday afternoon, our ultimate braai stands ready for its maiden voyage – I’ve just got to decide what to throw on there first up!

Glorious, isn't it?

The final awesome artistic shot, proving just how good a photographer I really am...

Indeed, now I truly can set about laying claim to what my braai apron has for so long already proclaimed: Craig: Champion Braaier! ;)
