Lump Binchotan is suited to larger grills like the Weber, Big Green Egg or Kamado Jan as well as the larger handmade konro (KON4+) and our Metal Yakitori grills. Due to the size of the pieces the best way to light it would be to use a chimney starter as you would making a normal braai.  Simply light your binchotan this way and transfer to your grill, allow to insulate for 5 minutes then you'll be ready to grill.
Remember to close your vents to extinguish your binchotan for future uses.

Binchotan is known as the King of all charcoals, a favourite amongst Yakitori bars all over Japan due to it's clean burning properties and the amazing aroma and flavour it imparts when grilling.

Binchotan is the perfect charcoal for barbequing due to its long steady burning properties, and food grilled over binchotan results in a juicier texture and heightened flavours compared to other charcoal. There is little to no smoke and is odourless when burning, so the flavour of the food is kept pure and whats more there are minimal flare ups. This of course all changes when you add fatty meat to the grill.

The binchotan we source is 100% produced from Acacia grown and processed in Africa.  Due to Acacia being an invader species it is a much more sustainably sourced.

Unlike Tosa Japanese binchotan, which has a total burn time of up to 5 hours and very little ash, Acacia binchotan has a total burn time of a minimum of 3 hours with a higher ash content.  Be sure to knock off the ash to release the heat when grilling.

Compared to regular natural hardwood charcoal, Binchotan will burn many times longer and when finished grilling, you should simply extinguish the charcoal so you can use it again.
To extinguish simply close your vents on your grill and leave to cool for many future uses.
