Southern Africans love a good barbecue and the rainbow nation is made of many distinct cultures, barbecuing cuts across ethnicity, race and class. In the Zulu language, the term for barbecue is Chisa nyama, which roughly translates to burn meat. Chisa nyama or Shisa Nyama is a term used in many South African townships to describe a barbecue or braai.

Chisa nyama can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon snack or dinner but especially on a Saturday afternoon throughout South Africa the Chisa Nyama spots, street food vendors and home backyard chefs are grilling up deliciousness.

Barbecuing in South Africa is called Chisa Nyama, Braai and Ukosa to name few, there is even a national braai day celebrated on September 24 every year. Braai day is considered a family food-sharing day similar to Thanksgiving in America.
