Sea­son 1 SABC3 (*193) 20:30 Life­style

Life­style se­ries Tyres & Braaiers (2017cur­rent) is tak­ing view­ers on a braaivleis road­trip around Mzansi and driv­ing the show (lit­er­ally) are co­me­dian Nik Rabi­nowitz and chef Hezron Louw. The pair hop in in­ter­est­ing cars and travel the land to ba­si­cally braai and have a good time – tv­plus caught up with them in the mid­dle of such a pit­stop…

What’s your first braai mem­ory?

Hezron: a Mozam­bique beach with cala­mari and prawns and green salad when I was about five. For some rea­son, the salad sticks with me [Laughs]. Nik: My god­fa­ther loved braai­ing fish on the rocks in front of his sea­side bun­ga­low. My god­fa­ther was like the Jewish Tolla van der Merwe and my early com­edy ed­u­ca­tion ba­si­cally took place around his fire.

You both ob­vi­ously share a love for cars… Hezron: Oh yes! Have you seen a 1967 Mal­ibu Chev­elle with a V8 en­gine? A beau­ti­ful beast with raw power! Nik: Kombi le­gend Paul Cochrane has a 1975 VW Kombi that he mod­i­fied into a firetruck with a wood lad­der! It’s crazy!

What braai stands out as the most in­ter­est­ing you’ve been to on Tyres & Braaiers? Hezron: the crocodile spit [episode 5, 3 May] – an en­tire croc! And they still did a 3kg “T-Rex T-Bone”. It was pri­mal! Nik: the smi­ley (sheep head) braai in the Agter Pakhuis moun­tains [episode 6, 10 May], around the cor­ner from where I spent my child­hood hol­i­days. Sheep’s brains on toast – now there’s an un­for­get­table braai broed­jie combo.

And which braai spot had the most mem­o­rable vibe this sea­son? Nik: Andile and Sphelelo’s Soweto Car Wash Tshisanyama [episode 4, tonight] that ended with wheel spin­ners dis­a­pear­ing in a cloud of smoke.
