15 teams will battle it out when the second season of SABC3’s popular cooking reality programme, The Ultimate Braai Master, kicks off tonight.

It’s for this coveted title that 15 teams will battle it out when the second season of SABC3’s popular cooking reality programme, The Ultimate Braai Master, kicks off at 8.30 pm on Wednesday 18 September.

Viewers can look forward to plenty of tension and excitement for the next 13 weeks, according to presenter and bush-cook guru Justin Bonello. The teams will be taken on a 60-day journey across the country and will be expected to camp and cook under difficult circumstances in the open air. Among the places to be visited are Jozini Dam in northern KwaZulu-Natal, Wakkerstroom in Mpumalanga, the mountains of Rhodes in the Eastern Cape, the Wild Coast and the pristine Tsitsikamma Forest. Justin believes there’s a little traveller locked up in every person – “but the unfortunate truth is that the beauty of many places in South Africa is lost to people because they stay on the highway on their way to some destination or other”.

By leaving well-known tarred roads behind, The Ultimate Braai Master will now bring these places into your lounge.

“The challenges the the teams have to overcome are much worse than in the first series last year,” says Justin. “Viewers will be on the edge of their seats as they wonder how the teams will overcome each challenge.”

Justin doesn’t want to say more than that. “Stay tuned and see for yourself,” he says.
