This Braai Block collection is perfect for someone that loves braaing and generally entertains 4-6 people.
The collection has:
1 x Mini Braai Block – this will cover all your juicy cuts and generally carving needs.
1 x Utility Board – this is perfect for the kitchen or bread
1 x Picnic Board – this is a very diverse board. It is small enough to take with you, but also serious enough that it can be used as a small plankie steak board!
What makes our boards special:
. • THE WOOD: we have taken special care in selecting the type of wood we use. All of our boards are crafted from African hardwood which has been selected for durability. Each plank of wood is hand selected and so each board is unique.
- NO JOINTS, NO GLUE: All of our boards are crafted from a single solid piece of wood. This means no joints or glue.
- THE GROOVES: on our Braai Block and Fillet Block we have created a groove with PURPOSE! Our grooves are extra large, ready for the juiciest cuts!
- BRANDING: We believe the beauty of our product must be unspoiled, so none of our boards have branding on the top.
