Konro grill

Origin of the Shichirin

The Konro Grill was developed in the 18th century. At first, the Konro was not yet used as a grill, but as a heating appliance. Over time, it was discovered that this grill could serve not only as a heating appliance, but that you could also use it perfectly to prepare Yakitori and other foods. Thus, the Konro Grill was born. This Shichirin table BBQ is made of diatomaceous earth, a material that can withstand extreme heat very well and holds it very well. Because the grates of the grill are fixed just above the charcoal, the juice of the meat drips into the grill and evaporates very quickly. Because this allows the vapor to soak into the meat, you get a great BBQ flavor to your meat.

Charcoal for the Shichirin BBQ

The Shichirin grill is a special grill. That means you also need a special charcoal to use it properly: Binchotan charcoal. This type of charcoal is made from the Ubame oak tree. A tree that only grows in Japan. Binchotan charcoal is therefore only produced in southwestern Japan. Here the locals make the charcoal by hand in large clay kilns. Then the moisture is pulled out of the wood very slowly, making it very hard. As a result, the charcoal burns much longer than any other type of charcoal. This also makes the product a bit more expensive. We offer an affordable alternative, namely the white BestCharcoal Binchotan. This is a charcoal from Indonesia and it has almost the same properties as the Japanese Binchotan.
