Tips and tricks for lighting your grill

How to light your binchotan charcoal:

  • For best results, use a chimney starter pot
  • Fill the pot with binchoan
  • Hold it over your gas hob or open flame until the charcoal is fully lit. It should take about 10 – 15 minutes until it is glowing. Once it reaches this point, simply pop it in your grill and wait 10 minutes for the heat to build inside the grill

How much charcoal should I use?

You'll likely need more than one bag of binchotan charcoal to heat the grill to a high enough temperature — don't be scared to add more to the grill!

How to extinguish your binchotan:

  • Bincotan burns way longer than natural hardwood charcoal so when you’re done grilling, you can simply extinguish your coals and use them again
  • To extinguish, put your charcoal in an extinguishing pot or dip in water for 30 seconds and leave to dry in the sun
  • You can store your charcoal in the extinguishing pot, ready for your next grilling adventure!

Drying out your charcoal:

  • If you hear cracking or popping sounds you’ll need to dry out the charcoal first — this is because binchotan absorbs moisture from the air and expands when heated
  • You can pop it in the sun to dry or if you want to start grilling right away, put it on low heat for around 10 minutes and then increase the temperature
  • Additionally you can place a metal grill net over the top of the charcoal chimney or Starter Pot for the initial heating phase

Care Instructions

  • Hibachi grills are fragile so be careful when moving and storing

  • Don't leave the grill outdoors uncovered — rain, dew or prolonged exposure to humidity will cause damage
  • Don't leave unattended when in use

Review by Erwin L. on 5 March 2024

In spite of using different amounts of Bintochan charcoal, I could not get the grill to the heat required to grill simple food like duck breasts or chicken kebabs. I'm afraid that after all the excitement of getting it we sent it back after 3 failed attempts.

I would not recommend this product to a friend.
