Q: Is it permissible to use a braai stand at a public place, if one puts foil or a grill mat over the griddle?
A: Using a braai griddle in a public place should be avoided as far as possible to avoid contamination. However, if it is thoroughly washed and sanitised then using it will not be impermissible. If a foil or grill mat is used then it would be better.
And Allah Knows Best
