Braai for Heritage South African World Record

Jan Braai (a truly South African name if ever there was one (follow him on Twitter @JanBraai) has broken the Braai world record!

As a warm up to Heritage Day which is also our National Braai Day (Friday 24th September), Jan ‘Braai’ Scannel slaved over the hot coals for 28 hours 30 minutes at the Waterfront in Cape Town.

He beat the Guiness World Record for the world’s longest ever recorded braai previously held by German, Sven Dörge, who ‘barbecued’ for 28 hours and 26 minutes.

Jan said his victory is not about breaking the record but is rather “a call to action for all South Africans to celebrate our common heritage by having a braai next week“.

“Heritage Day has the spirit of the World Cup without costing the tax payers a cent, and plus you can’t lose at braaing,” Jan said as he turned another braai grill over on the fire.

So let’s get together and heed the call. Get together next Friday and BRAAI FOR HERITAGE!
