How do you light Binchotan Charcoal?
Binchotan Charcoal can be a little harder to light but once it's going you'll be amazed by its performance. We've found that firelighters on their own. Our best results have come from using a charcoal chimney and putting a couple of small pieces of kindling in the bottom. The fire lighters will get the kindling going and the kindling will light your Binchotan.
How long does Binchotan Charcoal burn for?
Binchotan Charcoal burns for ages and while conditions and bbq's vary we've had 4.5 hours out of 1kg of charcoal in a pizza oven. We've also had 17 hours from 3.5 kg's of Binchotan but this was done over 4 separate cooks reusing the same charcoal 4 times. the original cook was a Brisket done over 10 hours.
As well as traditional Hibachi style cooking we have now tested Binchotan in bullet smokers, pit barrels, spits, pizza ovens & Kettle's. Its cook times have blown us away every single time!
