Aramaru charcoal is the easier to light than white binchotan, however they have a shorter life (up to 3-4 hours). Aramaru Binchotan can burn between 1652-1832ºF / 900-1000ºC.

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.
