Braai Shop

Braai Shop is really one of the only real shops fully dedicated to braaing, as shocking as that is. They stock braais of every shape and size, accessories and literature. They have a store in Randburg which you can visit but they also have an online store which features even more selection. Pop in and discuss the perfect braai for you or grab that pair of tongs with the infra red thermometer on it, either way you’re in for a treat.

The Fireplace Shoppe

The Fireplace Shoppe is a great place for those of you looking to go the 'whole nine' because they sell those big, installed braais and pizza ovens. You’re going to need a braai unless you plan on digging a pit in the garden and the Fireplace Shoppe has got a unrivalled selection from Green Eggs to fancy gas ovens and they can install anything that needs installing ... phew! They also rather cleverly include a feature on their website which helps you choose your perfect braai, it asks you a series of questions and bases its selection on that. It’s really top notch and you should check it out.

Address: Unit 1 Commercial City; Tungsten Road (cnr Malibongwe Drive); Strydompark.
Telephone: +27 11 791 0168

Weber is an online store and they stock everything Weber from books to grills and everything in between. I'm actually quite worried that I found this place because my credit card is almost definitely going to take a knock. Weber gadgets are truly a guy or gal's best friend and their braais make the whole thing seem all too easy. Visit these guys if you’re into kettle braais and smoking products.
