A braai is an excellent way to relax and to spend quality time with your friends and family. What makes a braai great? The perfect firewood of course! A specialist braai wood supplier in Johannesburg will enable you to have a great braai every time!
Choosing the right braai wood for your braai will ensure that your BBQ:
- Lights quickly.
- Burns at the right temperature.
- Burns for the longest possible time.
- Does not generate too much smoke (i.e. burns 'cleanly').

All of our braai firewood is of the very highest quality , and will check all of the boxes in the list above (and much much more!). What is more, it comes ready chopped, so you do not need to spend time softening and splitting hard firewood: just load the wood onto your braai and you are ready to go.
A braai wood supplier you can count on in Johannesburg
For one thing, we provide you with a fantastic variety of specially selected braai woods, so it will be easy to get the perfect one for you.
From Rooikrans to Tasmanian Blue Gum, there are numerous types of braai firewood on offer here. To get you started, here are three top types of wood that will suit your braai perfectly:
- Rooikrans: a dense, hard wood that will burn for a long time. Ideal for braais that stretch out throughout a long afternoon and into the evening, too. It also has an appealing smokey and musky aroma when it burns that will add flavor to meats, breads and veggies on the braai. As it is dense, Rooikrans can be a little more difficult to light than other woods, but once it is alight, it will stay lit for hours.
- Sekelbos: an exceptionally dry wood that gives of a lot of heat, so if you want your food to really sizzle this is the perfect choice. This wood is super dry because it is left to bake in the African sun, so it is easy to set light to.
- Blue Gum: coming from the Eucalyptus tree, this is a cooler wood that is good for cooking food more slowly. Many braai users like the fact that this wood is resinous, which makes it crackle a little - though it still burns cleanly.
In depth information about all of the woods that we supply in Johannesburg can be found on our site. One helpful tip, though is to use a variety of different woods in your braai to get the perfect mix. For example,
- Use cooler burning woods to bring down the hot temperature of a wood like Sekelbos.
- Mix aromatic woods (like Apple tree wood and Rooikrans) together to give your braai smoke the perfect fragrance.
- Mix a few super dry or easy to light woods amid your denser fire wood lumps, to help the latter catch light more easily.

Want a quick guide to get the party started? Follow these 5 simple tips.
- Marinate your meats and veg overnight before the day of the braai to get the best possible flavor.
- Choose excellent quality firewood for your braai.
- Place your braai in a spot that is not too windy and not too enclosed. Have your guests stand upwind of the braai so smoke does not blow in their faces.
- Light up the braai at least half an hour before guests are due to arrive, so the food will be ready for them to enjoy on arrival.
- Pay attention to health and safety at all times: for instance don't mix raw meat and eggs with cooked meat and salads. Keep utensils separate and keep all work spaces clean.
