Hangrib Challenge

Win big prizes by showing us your braai skills and ingenuity in cooking rib meats by hanging them over the fire.  In 2022 we want to see South Africans braaing in new ways and pushing their craft and skills to new heights.

Welcome to the Johnny Braaivo Hangrib Challenge!

What is Hangrib?

We've all heard of the Staanrib technique or style where you place a rack of ribs in a folding grid and stand it next to the fire to cook slowly and to render the fats down and leave deliciously tender meat.

 

Hangrib is an evolution of this style where meat is hung over the fire without a grid to support it and cooked slowly in the smoke, heat and flames of the fire to produce delicious results. This style is used in other braai cultures, particularly in South America.

 

In 2022, we are bringing it to South Africa and running the #Hangribchallenge to encourage South African Braai Masters and Enthusiasts to try the technique, learn about it, and ultimately, have fun along the way!

The Hangrib Challenge

Win exciting prizes by showing us YOUR Hangrib! 

The challenge is simple: braai any type of rib by hanging it over a fire.  Then submit your recipe and method details as a series of photographs posted on Instagram.

Your recipe should describe the type of rib you are cooking, where you bought it, how you have seasoned or marinated it, as well as the steps taken to hang it and cook it.

 

The best submissions will be judged by our panel of external judges and we will crown a winner and a runner-up for the 2022 Hangrib Challenge!

The competition runs until 25 May 2022.

All entries must be posted to Instagram and tagged with the following hashtags:
