Smoke Meat, Fish or Veg The Easy Way on your Braai (No Experience Needed)

Smoking is definitely one of the latest cooking trends. Everything from meat to ice-cream is being smoked. And with good reason, it makes everything just even more delicious. To help you stay the braai master you are, My Butchers Block has developed a range of easy to use Smoking Planks and Smoke Shavings for the braai.

How do the Smoking Planks Work?

Although there are many ways to smoke food, most techniques require expensive equipment. That’s where the My Butchers Block Smoking Planks come in, not only can you choose your smoking flavour, they are super easy to use.

  1. Choose your Flavour. Your choices are: Maple, Cedar, Oak or Cherry.
  2. Submerge your planks in water for a few hours or overnight before the braai.
  3. Place braai planks on an open flame for 1-2 minutes on the side you will be arranging and braaing your dish.
  4. Grill your meat, fish or vegetables to your taste.
  5. Finally, just before serving, place the ingredient you want to add that mouthwatering smoky flavour to, on the planks and cover with a kettle braai lid. Make sure that your coals are still quite warm. Place the planks adirectly onto your braai grid. Once the plank starts heating up, it will start to smoke, releasing all the flavoured goodness that infuses with the food. For best results, let your food get lost in the smoke for at least 15 minutes before taking it off the fire.
