White Binchotan Charcoal
Item #: TK-636-03
Size:
Binchotan is a traditionally Japanese charcoal that is completely different from American charcoal in just about every way possible. White binchotan is chemical free, almost smoke free, and burns three times hotter than American charcoal for up to 4-5 hours. 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. These wonderful charcoal are not limited to kitchen usages, they also have health benefits if used properly!

Because white binchotan is the hardest charcoal, it is also the hardest to light. However, once it is lit it will burn at the highest temperature for the longest amount of time. White Binchotan can burn between 1652-2192ºF / 900-1200ºC.

Made in Hyuga-city, Miyazaki prefecture, Japan
