The special Yakitori BBQ
The Konro grill, as the yakitori grill is called in Japan, was developed in the 18th century. Initially, not yet as a grill, but as a heating appliance. Sometime later, people discovered that the grills could not only serve as heaters, but that you could also perfectly prepare different foods on them. Thus, the Yakitori BBQ was born. The grill is made of diatomaceous earth, a material that can withstand extreme heat very well and holds it extremely well. Because the grates of the grill are fixed just above the charcoal, the juice of the meat drips down to the grill and quickly evaporates. The vapor then soaks into the meat and this gives off a wonderful smoke flavor.
When you are going to use the Yakitori BBQ, you need the most special type of charcoal in the world: Binchotan charcoal. This special charcoal is made from the Japanese Ubame oak. Binchotan is only produced in southwestern Japan. Locals there make the charcoal by hand in large clay kilns. Then the moisture is pulled out of the wood very slowly, making it very hard. This allows this solid charcoal to burn much longer than any other charcoal. This also makes the product a bit more expensive. Therefore, we offer an affordable alternative, namely the white BestCharcoal Binchotan. This is a charcoal from Indonesia and it has practically the same properties as the Japanese variety.
