Great quality Binchotan Charcoal for our Mizu Konro (Water Grill)
Binchotan is a type of charcoal traditionally used in Japanese cooking, like yakitori, yakiniku or grilling fish etc.
It’s made by firing wood in a kiln until it is carbonized, once the carbonization is complete, a blend of ash and sand is thrown over the charcoal to extinguish the flames. This sprinkling of ash is why Binchotan charcoal looks grayish white. Rock-hard, it gives off a shiny metallic luster and even makes a sharp metallic sound when one piece is struck against another. It takes longer to start, but once it catches fire it burns steadily for a long time. Binchotan charcoal does not transfer unpleasant flavors or aromas, thus does not alter the foods they are cooked with.
Once Binchotan Charcoal is lit, enjoy grilling with our Mizu Konro (Water Grill).
