Building Tip #49: Built-In Braai Place Pros and Cons

Building Tip #49: Built-In Braai Place Pros and Cons

Braaing is an intrinsic part of South African heritage and culture, which is why every South African takes the entire process so seriously. With Braai Day fast approaching, if you haven't got yourself ready for the big day or still thinking about upgrading your current grill, you may want to consider a built-in braai space. Read on for four reasons why you should upgrade your braai area and get the most out of Heritage Day this year.

  1. Extras:

There is nothing better for the braai master to enjoy cooking with his or her grill that has been fitted with all the bells and whistles. A built in braai gives you the chance to fully customise the grill to suit every need you might have. . From a storage area for gas or charcoal that's close but out of sight, to a hanging wrack where all your favourite braai utensils are easily reached, a built in braai gives you every opportunity to create the feast of your dreams.

  1. Protection from the elements:

There is nothing worse than planning a braai with your closest friends and family, only for the weather to have other plans for the day and rain you out. A built in braai can take the pain of the rain away, with a built-up undercover patio or lapa to protect your braai while you cook. Not only does a built in braai let you cook in the rain, but protection from the burning sun or rushing wind also helps to keep your braaing experience enjoyable.

  1. Size:

The standard size for a stand alone braai is usually alright but if you're planning on a big cookout with a lot of meat, you will probably run out of space quickly. The built in braai is the solution for this particular dilemma as you can choose the size of your grill. You can have a small, medium, or large grill size, and even one with a custom built coal holder that sliders to adjust the size of the fire you want.

  1. Added home value:

Few things get potential buyers more excited about a home than a beautiful built in braai, and that's where the added value comes in. Potential buyers see a built in braai and immediately picture themselves enjoying countless weekends with their loved ones, it may be a small thing to consider but when you remember the proud heritage that braaing has with all South Africans. It's easy to see why an upgrade to this past-time is so popular.
