You have your Megamaster. You have your ingredients. You have your guests. You have everything you need to bring it all together. It would be a shame to let it all fall apart at the last minute, just because you left the food on for too long or not long enough.

We compiled a handy guide to cooking times and techniques, so you can master any occasion. Although, we can’t do the cooking for you. You will have to consider a few things, like the size and thickness of your ingredients, whether they were frozen or fresh and the temperature outside. All of which can vary cooking times. While Megamaster gas braai's come with a built-in temperature gauge taking the guess work out of cooking – with our handy timing guide, you’ll be that much closer to perfectly timed grilling.

And for flawlessly cooked meat, fish or vegetables, you can check the temperature inside ingredients using the Megamaster Meat Thermometer, which you can shop here.

Test for doneness using a meat thermometer or instant-read thermometer.

  • Insert thermometer through the side of the cut, tip in the centre, not touching bone or fat. Keep it inserted for a while in order to get an accurate reading.
  • Rest your meat.
  • The temperature will continue to rise while resting.
