Premium Handcrafted Quality – Real Binchotan gives a clear metallic sound when you hit the pieces together, does not break into small pieces once fully lit and takes the shape of natural wood.
Origin – Our charcoal craftsmen travel to plantations several times annually in search of special types of wood that will make superb quality Binchotan.
The Making Of Binchotan – After 4-6 weeks of drying, the wood is stacked into a brickoven, where our Binchotan craftsmen meticulously control the internal temperature.

STEP 1: Choose either method below:
Method 1: Use A Charcoal Chimney – Place Binchotan in a charcoal chimney, and light sufficient firestarters underneath it for Binchotan to ignite.
Method 2: Use Regular Charcoal / Naked Flame. Place Binchotan atop a naked flame. Or start some easier-lighting regular charcoal, and place Binchotan atop glowing charcoal, to use the heat to ignite.
Once (about 50% of) Binchotan starts to glow red, a fan may be used to speed up the ignition. Make sure Binchotan is properly lit (>85% glowing) before using tongs to place it evenly in your grill.
FYRO Binchotan burns steadily for 3-5 hours depending on the style of grilling, and if still glowing at the end of your cook – can be extinguished and re-ignited for use during your next BBQ! To extinguish, cut off the air supply to your grill or place Binchotan into a pot, and shut the lid. You can also smother burning Binchotan with ash or sand. Ensure Binchotan has cooled and fully extinguished before moving it.
Enjoy re-using FYRO charcoal!
