BINCHOTAN, THE JAPANESE GOLD
Binchotan is the highest quality charcoal in the world and is widely used in Japan because of its very unique properties. For hundreds of years, they have been making charcoal in traditional ovens from stone and clay with an impressively high carbon percentage of 96-98%. Because of its extremely pure composition, it does not crackle, it does not produce smoke and it is completely odourless. So it gives a nice quiet fire. One of the main reasons why most people like to use Binchotan charcoal is because of its efficiency and the heat it produces. Binchotan charcoal easily reaches extremely high temperatures of 870 to 1200°C. It also burns steadily and has a very high heat content. In addition, it burns pretty constantly and has an average burning time of no less than 4 to 6 hours. This makes Binchotan very suitable for a wonderfully long afternoon or evening of grilling with friends and family.
