Yearning for a memorable getaway? Light the coals and relish a classic South African braai!

Sadly, the prices of braai essentials, from charcoal to boerewors to your favourite beverage, have sky-rocketed in recent months.

The South African website is seeking to help enrich the lives of our readers because why should you be paying higher prices at one retailer when you can save a little somewhere else?

We’ve got you covered with the latest in our series of braai basket price comparisons between four of South Africa’s favourite supermarkets – Woolworths, Checkers, Shoprite and Pick n Pay.

Each week we visit the supermarkets so you don’t waste your time and money and rather braai with these best prices.

We’ve compared 10 common braai items this week to establish which supermarket is offering the best prices – both on individual items and for the entire basket.

TO NOTE

– We do not consider discounts or card-holder specials in this comparison

– When the exact name-brand items are not available, we use the nearest alternative house-brand alternative

– Due to fluctuations in prices both inland and at the coast in South Africa, the prices below are based on those payable in Gauteng
