A difficult task to narrow our favourites down to 10 with what you can make on a gas braai. An outdoor oven can literally do anything, it’s just a matter of understanding your braai, all its features, and experimenting with different methods of cooking.

Here are some of our most flavourful, some easy, and some a little more chef-y gas braai recipes! We even included dessert made right on your braai!

Rotisserie Chicken

1. Naqiyah Mayat’s harissa chicken braai roast

This will beat any supermarket’s ready-made rotisserie chicken, hands down! Use our Rotisserie Kits on your gas braai to cook a roast like no other. We have two sizes available, make sure you purchase the correct one to fit on your braai.

Stir fry

3. Chicken stir fry

An easy weeknight dinner to put together in under 30 minutes. Using your Gourmet Plus plates, Steak Plate, or even a good old cast iron Round Pan to make your stirfry. The smokey flavour of the braai will infuse the dish as it cooks, for a lovely umami taste.

Seafood Feast

4. A braai seafood feast

Made specifically on our Apex Series 4 Burner Evolution patio gas braai with Evolution Heat Plates. The braai itself is big enough to cook all your seafood at once, and the addition of the heat plates makes for low-regulated heat.

5. Ichumile’s shrimp and chorizo brunch bobotie

A twist on a classic, a brunch bobotie with shrimp and chorizo made right on the braai in our cast iron Round Pan. Did you know, you can use your cast iron pan on a gas braai, on open flames, in your kitchen, and on your camping stove! Talk about versatile!

Smash burger

6. Jan Braai’s smash burgers

The most delicious, almost deconstructed, beef burger you will ever eat. The success of a smash burger is that the minced meat keeps its integrity while it cooks for juicier meat. Ultimately a burger that is full of flavour and texture.

Prawns and rice

7. Jan Braai’s Peri peri prawns with rice and veggies

Braaied on our Apex Series 6 Burner Gourmet Plus patio gas braai with a variety of 5 different cooking methods; infusing the prawns with flavour and cooking the rice sufficiently can be a mammoth task. Not with the braai that can do it all.

9. Bertus Basson’s braaied brisket

Brisket is the first cut of meat to think of when you think of low-and-slow smoke over a few hours. Eat Out San Pellegrino & Acqua Panna Chef of the Year 2019 Bertus Basson gave us the trick to create delicious brisket. He says: “I learnt how to cook brisket from an old lady in the township Kayamandi. It is a more affordable cut of meat, slightly chewy, but very beefy.
