Binchotan Stix Charcoal, also known as White Charcoal, offers a truly unique and powerful grilling experience. This potent hardwood charcoal has tradition at its heart, as it is made following the ancient production techniques first developed in Wakayam Japan during the 7th Century. Inside this box you will find stick/branch like pieces of charcoal, rather than lumps.

 

Purity and performance comes from an intricate two-phase production process. The first stage involves burning wood kilns at low temperatures while carefully controlling oxygen flow. Once this process is complete phase two involves increasing the temperature in the kiln to 1000°C plus for up to 24 hours. This phase is referred to as the refinery stage where almost all impurities are burned away and the charcoal is hardened.

The result? An extremely pure charcoal, with a whitish appearance and high carbon content. You can even check the quality of the charcoal with a simple tap. This is because the pieces create a distinctive sound when tapped together, some say it sounds like iron!

Benefits:

The real beauty of Big K Binchotan Stix Charcoal lies in the performance. We’re talking longer and hotter burn time when compared to charcoal of the same size, with red-hot glowing embers which don’t emit any smoke, sparks or smell when ignited. Thanks to the high carbon content, the charcoal is easier to manage, resisting flare up during the cooking process. Food tastes amazing as the natural vaporisation of juices dripping onto the hot coals produces fantastic aromatic and subtle smoky flavours, enriching and amplifying flavour profiles.

There are two methods to lighting the Binchotan Stix Charcoal


Method 1: Using Lumpwood

Create a base of lumpwood charcoal, add 3-4 Big K firelighters and light. Once the firelighters are burning, cover with additional charcoal to make a pyramid. This allows the flames to rise up from the bottom, heating the coals quickly and evenly.

After approximately 30 minutes, spread the coals out and add the Binchotan on top. Wait for a further 25-30 minutes and you're ready to start cooking.


Method 2: Chimney Starter

With a single layer of lumpwood charcoal, place the firelighters underneath and the binchotan on top in an upright position. Light the firelighters, after 15 minutes change turn the charcoal the other way up, after approximately 30 minutes, lay the briquettes out length ways in your grill.
