What Is Braai Wood?

The word braai (plural braais) is Afrikaans for a barbeque or a grill and is a social occasion and custom in South Africa and some other countries in Africa, including, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, and Zambia. The term originally came from Afrikaans-speaking people but has since been adopted by South Africans of many ethnic backgrounds.

The word has been adopted by English-speaking South Africans and can be regarded as another word for barbeque, in that it serves as a verb when describing how food cooks and a noun when describing the cooking equipment, like a grill. The traditions around a braai are considerably different from a barbeque, though the method of food preparation is very similar.

There is a renewed interest in the use of wood.

Braaiwood UK Ensures Wood Fuel Is Ready to Burn

As a national provider of woodfuel, Braaiwood is making it easy for customers to find wood fuels that have been certified as Ready to Burn and that meet new legal requirements that come into force from 1 May 2021 in England.

Under the new Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 that will apply in England from 1 May 2021, woodfuel sold in volumes under 2m3 will need to be certified as Ready to Burn. The new regulations aim to prevent harmful pollution from domestic burning of all solid fuels by ensuring wood sold in volumes of under 2m3is certified as having a moisture content of 20% or less. Customers buying loose wood in quantities of 2m3 or more must be advised on how to store and season the fuel. This will give them confidence that the wood they are burning is suitably dry before use.

The DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) Ready to Burn certification scheme is run by Woodsure. Woodsure is a non-profit organisation striving to raise the quality of woodfuel in the industry. For the past four years, Woodsure has been leading the way in championing the use of less polluting dry wood, which is verified by its independent inspectors as having a moisture content of 20% less, meaning it burns with less smoke than wetter wood.

Braaiwood customers can be confident that the woodfuel being sold is ready for immediate use by looking for the Ready to Burn logo along with the supplier’s name and unique Ready to Burn certification number.
