Had me up until they went and ruined things by poking the sausages. Never poke the sausages. Rookies.

Seriously. Vampire holes? wtf?

A sausage can use a good poke right before you eat it, to avoid the nasty hot splash in the face you can get when you burst a hot sausage with your teeth.

Fun movie. Almost too long.

What accent was that? I don't think I've ever heard it before.

It's South African, driveler; hence the braai reference.

I didn't hate that.

There's two feet of snow outside right now.
This video created great cognitive dissonance in my brain.

Looks like it was filmed in the garden of a house in London...

I am the Master baster at my braai.

Heh. "We sipped our beer." Great stuff.

Re: holing the sausages. Pricking them with a pin before they hit the grill can help excess steam escape. No forks though.

Heh. Not too far from the truth actually. Thanks.

The book "A Stiff Drink and a Close Shave: The Lost Arts of Manliness" is a great little book full of exulting tributes to the great manlky pursuits like whiskey, poker, barbecue, shaving and gambling.

So are "braai" and "boerie" synonymous with "grill" and "sausage," respectively?

Are these words developed from the Afrikaans language?

Braaivleis or braai is Afrikaans for "roasted meat." Boerie is beef and pork sausage with coriander and cloves.

I speculate that the "vleis" of "braaivleis" is akin to the German "fleisch" and the English "flesh" and perhaps the "braai" is akin to the German "brennen" and the English "to burn"?
