Aramaru Binchotan Charcoal
Item #: TK-636-01-33
Size: 33 lbs
Aramaru charcoal is more economical than white binchotan. Aramaru charcoal is also chemical free and almost smoke free. Aramaru charcoal is the easier to light than white binchotan, however they have a shorter life (up to 3-4 hours).

This makes them ideal to mix with white binchotan. The lack of chemical additives and the incredibly high heat preserves the flavorful juices, adds a beautiful sear, and makes anything barbecued on it absolutely delectable.

Manufactured in Malaysia.
