How do you know if your coals are just right for braaibroodjies?
- You should be able to hold the palm of your hand over the coals for 3-5 seconds and no more. Any hotter will burn the bread before the cheese inside has melted; any cooler and the cheese might not melt at all.
- Place your braai grid about 10cm above the coals to avoid burning the breads.
- Remember to turn your bread or braai grid regularly for even cooking and best results.
- Don’t overfill your broodjies, as it’ll make turning them over or keeping them together difficult.
