Konro grill

The special Konro grill

The Konro BBQ was developed in Japan in the 18th century. At first, the grates of the grill served as heating devices. Later, people discovered that the grates could not only serve as heaters but were also ideal for preparing Yakitori and other foods. The Japanese Konro grill is made of diatomaceous earth. This material can withstand extreme heat and holds up extremely well. When using the Konro BBQ, you place the meat only a few inches above the charcoal. This causes the juices of the meat to drip down to the grill and evaporate quickly. This vapor then soaks into the meat and this gives a wonderful smoky flavor to the meat.

Binchotan charcoal

When you start using the Japanese Konro grill, you need a special type of charcoal: Binchotan charcoal. This charcoal is made from the Japanese Ubame oak. This charcoal is only produced in southwestern Japan. By locals here, the charcoal is made by hand in large clay kilns. Then the moisture is pulled out of the wood very slowly, making it incredibly hard. This ensures that this sturdy charcoal burns much longer than any other charcoal. Because the product is a bit more expensive, we offer an affordable alternative: the white BestCharcoal Binchotan. This charcoal comes from Indonesia and has almost the same properties as the variant from Japan.
