Bake for 2 hours until very tender.

Leave to cool down in the stock. Best done the day before. Remove and put the necks in a zip-lock bag. Coat the necks with BBQ Marinade.

Prepare a medium fire, remove necks from the bag and braai slowly, while turning and basting regularly with fresh Marinade, until brown and crispy on the outside.

Don’t forget the sides. Braai salads and side dishes are a must. Serve with pickled vegetables, caramelised onions, grilled butternut and a green salad.
