The Braai Board – Shisanyama Plankie


The Braai Board is a large wooden board made for slicing up large steak, boerewors, etc. while serving it up alongside braaibroodjies and other sides. It works perfectly as a sharing plate or for tapas in the middle of the table. You can even think of it as a Braai Platter, with dipping bowls. And the ideally placed grooves will catch all those meat juices.

The name Shisanyama (braai or barbeque) plankie is rooted in a South African Township. Shisanyama is a Zulu word, literally meaning “burn meat”, which refers to the way the meat is cooked over hot coals. It started off as a way for butchers to drive sales over the weekends, and today it’s one of South Africa’s most delicious and social ways of eating.

Lead time: 2-10 business days

In South Africa, a braai is never a rushed affair! So The Braai Board provides the perfect solution when food is being shared and enjoyed straight off the braai. No more waiting for everything to be done before getting something in your tummy!
