The A to Z Challenge

by BraaiBoy 7. March 2013 11:23
This blog started quite some time ago, but haven't been posting regularly. I blame too much braaing, but the truth is I simply haven't taken it seriously enough. I came across the "A to Z Challenge" and have decided this is the perfect kick-start I need. Thanks Gill (A Daft Scots Lass) for bringing this to my attention.

A to Z Challenge 2013


So what's it all about? Very simple actually: During the month of April, every day (Mon - Sat), I will be writing a blog post using a new letter for the alphabet as inspiration for the day's topic. If you're a blogger and think this sounds like fun, then head on over to http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/2012-to-z-challenge-sign-up-list.html and sign up. My good friend BaasDeBeer (http://baasdebeer.wordpress.com/) has agreed to take up the challenge with me already, so please keep an eye out for our posts, and take us on if we slip up.

Part of the reason why I haven't been blogging much is that I'm looking to redesign the look of my site, and just haven't got around to it... So my secondary goal is to have a new, prettier looking site before the April challenge starts. So, if you're in the web-design business, please give me a shout or get in touch with me via twitter (@BraaiBoy) or on Facebook.

I'm also going to need some help from all of you guys... If you've got any suggestions for letters of the Alphabet, please leave them in the comments below... especially the arb letters... Q, Z, W etc.

OK... so that's the commitment, I hope to be entertaining you guys a lot more from now on.
Chat soon, and keep those fires burning!

February Park Acoustics

by BraaiBoy 19. February 2013 18:03
Man alive! Time sure flies when you're having fun. I almost didn't even notice that it's time for Park Acoustics again this weekend... and I haven't given tickets away yet! I kept thinking "it's at the end of the month, I'll do it soon". Well... "soon" is here now!

If you're new to my blog and/or you don't know by now, Park Acoustics happens on the last Sunday of every month at Fort Schanskop, Voortrekker Monument. A day filled with good music, funny comedy and of course braaing and kuiering. I've been entrusted with the braai area, and while there will be boerie rolls and pulled-pork burgers available for sale, the idea is actually that you guys bring your own meat and come braai it yourselves (or if you ask nicely, I'll even do the braaing for you).

Some fun in front of the camera

by BraaiBoy 19. February 2013 09:12
The guys from Foto..n invited me over for a day of fooling around in front of a camera.. this is some of what went down:

Nadine & Nico contacted me on twitter a couple weeks back. They were looking for 5 lucky individuals, brands or companies to be part of their "Lucky 13" project, and they had some fun ideas for a photo shoot, and wanted me to be of the the lucky 5. Always up for a bit of fun, I agreed without giving it a second though, and so the other day we met up at the Spar in Carlswald for the first of 2 sessions.

The theme for the day would later be referred to as the "Meat Locker in the Sky"... Being surrounded by all that meat, I was in my happy place.

Defending My Meat Locker


Nadine & Nico managed to distract me enough to get a couple good shots in, and soon enough we were done.

Enjoying my Wors BraaiBoy is Too Cool


The weather (and previous night parties) have caused a couple delays in a 06h00 call time for the next shoot, but I'm really looking forward to that one... Nico & Nadine have got some cool ideas for shots they're gonna take... "Watch This Space" as they say.

You can see a few more shots over here: http://foto-n.co.za/blog/braai-boys-first/

and get in touch with the Foto...n guys if you need a professional team to do any photography work... I highly recommend them.

I'd love to hear your comments below, or you can always give me a shout on twitter: @BraaiBoy or facebook... otherwise I'll catch you at the next braai!

SANBS #DOnation

by BraaiBoy 30. January 2013 19:43
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and it's within all of us to be heroes.
I'm not talking about breaking world records or becoming an astronaut, but rather about donating blood.
I know it's a lot more fun to talk about the sex, drugs and rock and roll part of life... but every now and again it feels just as good to give back.

The first time I donated blood I was still at varsity, and while I don't remember if I just did it for the free biscuits, I've been a big fan of the SANBS (South African National Blood Service) ever since. They recently released a really cool little advert encouraging new and existing donors to be heroes.

Check it out - a little bit of feel-good vibes for you on a Wed. evening.



For more information on how you can donate blood, you can visit http://www.sanbs.org.za, tweet @theSANBS or fan the DOnation of heroes on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/SANBS

I'd love to hear your thoughts below, or you can always give me a shout on twitter: @BraaiBoy or facebook... otherwise I'll catch you at the next braai!

Axe Apollo Space Academy

There I was, just chilling out under my lapa, when all of a sudden a white light from the sky blinded me. When I could see again my lapa was totalled. I need your help to exact my revenge on the aliens that did this.
Check this video, it explains it all:

Ultimate Braai Master - Season 2

by BraaiBoy 24. January 2013 10:50

If you didn't catch season 1 of Ultimate Braai Master, then you missed out on quite a bit of awesome braai TV. Fear not, Season 2 is coming soon, and instead of watching it from your couch, why not be a part of it?

Ultimate Braai Master Logo I was fortunate enough to be involved in the audition rounds of Season 1 at Sun City last year... What a jol! If that's anything to go by, I can't wait to get tasting what the entrants have up their sleeves for Season 2.



Season 2 of Ultimate Braai Master promises to deliver tougher challenges and bigger prizes to the 15 competing teams. Yes, the 2013 still walks away with the title, R500 000 in cash, and a new Renault Koleos 4×4... but they're also going to be rewarding contestants simply for playing the game!

Ultimate Braai Master Season 2


But personally, I think... even cooler than all those prizes put together... is that chance that you will have to kick my ass (AT BRAAING).

Yes, folks, Ultimate Braai Master has invited me to join them on one of their challenges and see if the contestants really have what it takes to be SA's next Ultimate Braai Master. Do you think you've got what it takes? Then head on over to register.ultimatebraaimaster.co.za and sign up... Entries are closing in Feb... so get on it right away!

I'd love to hear your comments below, or you can always give me a shout on twitter @BraaiBoy or facebook. Otherwise I'll catch you on the TV!

Park Acoustics gets going in 2013

by BraaiBoy 22. January 2013 22:59

It's been a long long time since the December 2012 Park Acoustics, and if, like me, you've been suffering severe withdrawal, then I'm sure you've already heard the line-up and got your tickets and are rearing to go come Sunday.

The show will be back inside Fort Schanskop with all the usual attractions. I'll be up at the braai area again, making sure there are enough coals for everyone. Please feel free to bring along your chow, or grab a boerie from me at the braai area. As per usual, the first 50 to claim their boerewors roll on the day get it for free... so make sure you're there at 10h00 when the gates open.

If you haven't got your tickets yet or if December & January have been especially hard on the wallet, check the end of the post about how you can score some tickets.

Let's Braai in Space

by BraaiBoy 21. January 2013 11:11
I've had some awesome times on my little braai adventure so far. Hell, I even broke a Guinness World Record and spent 62hrs+ behind the braai. However, the ultimate goal of braaing on the moon has still evaded me.

Yes, yes... I know how annoying these "please go vote for my cousin's brother's pet cat's photo competitions are"... and while I try to avoid them at all costs myself, this is SPACE we're talking about... So I'm willing to swallow any pride I might have had (and hopefully not get unfriended/blocked/whatever by too many people).

BraaiBoy Braai in Space

So, with your help, I can get one step closer.

Axe deodorant is hosting a competition which will see people from all over the world cruising around in space. Yes, that's right... a trip into Space for a lucky few!
I'm REALLY hoping I can convince you guys to go vote for me to be one of those lucky few, and I'll do my besat to bring back the first ever Space Boerie :-)

How can you help?
1) Head on over to: https://www2.axeapollo.com/en_ZA/41602/braai-boy and click on the vote button
2) Tweet/FB/G+ the shit out of the link and ask your friends & family to go vote as well.

What's in it for you?
Almost anything... name your price. If it's in my power to make it happen I will do so... it's THAT important for me to be the first oke to braai in space


I'd love to hear your comments and thoughts below, or you can always give me a shout on twitter or facebook

The Last Park Acoustics for 2012

by BraaiBoy 22. November 2012 10:55
Alright boys and girls... The last Park Acoustics for 2012 is taking place on Sunday (at the Voortrekker Monument as per usual). You definitely don't want to miss this one - and I've got some tickets to give away.

Park Acoustics Line-Up Nov 2012
Park Acoustics
This one is going to be huge! The bands are headlined by none other than Fokofpolisiekar. The first time in like 5 years that all the original guys will be playing an acoustic set together. Other bands include Al Bairre, Gil Hockman, Tailor & Matthe Mole.

The fairly new comedy stage will also be back this month and is being headlined by the "A rat crossed with Satan"-man himself, John Vlismas. Definitely not to be missed.

Park Acoustics Braai Area
see you guys at the braai area

Of course all this music and comedy is cool... but I'm sure you're all gonna get hungry at some point. And that's where I come in.
As per usual, I'll be manning the braai area. So please feel free to bring your own chow - I'll make sure there's enough braai place and fire for everyone. I'll also be selling boerie rolls for those that don't bring their own chow - and of course, as has become tradition, I will be giving away free boeries to the first 50 people that qualify. Details on how to qualify at the gate. Gates open at 10h00, so make sure you get there early.
