Konro grill

What is a Binchotan grill?

The original Konro grill comes from Japan. In China they try (of course) to imitate this grill but they never match the quality of the original, however. But where can you tell? The original Japanese Binchotan grill is 100% handmade from diatomaceous earth. This is a raw material from prehistoric earth layers. The clay made from it can withstand more than 1,000 degrees. Because you use binchotan charcoal in the Konro grill, you also reach ridiculously high temperatures, but the outside gets lukewarm at most. This makes the Konro the perfect table grill. Because the grates are placed a few inches above the charcoal, the juices from the meat drip to the grill and evaporate at lightning speed. This vapor soaks into the meat and this gives a fantastic flavor. In addition, in the Konro grill you use binchotan charcoal, the most special charcoal in the world.

Konro Grill Binchotan charcoal

When you start working with the Konro Grill, you will need Binchotan charcoal. This particular charcoal is made from the Japanese Ubame oak. Binchotan is only produced in southwestern Japan and is made there by local people. This makes this charcoal extremely unique. The moisture is pulled out of the wood very slowly, making this charcoal incredibly sturdy and burning much longer than any other charcoal. As mentioned, the Japanese Binchotan charcoal is very unique therefore also very expensive.

We are therefore pleased to offer an affordable alternative: the white BestCharcoal Binchotan. This charcoal comes from Indonesia and has almost the same properties as the Japanese Binchotan. A lot more affordable and perfect for your konro grill!
