Binchotan: what makes it special?
What is Tosa Binchotan?
Tosa binchotan is a type of Japanese charcoal that is known for its high quality. It is made from Ubame oak trees, which are grown in the Tosa region of Japan. Tosa binchotan is hard and dense, and it produces a metallic sound when struck. This makes it a superior choice for grilling, as it burns evenly and for a long time.
In Japan, there are three major sources of premium binchotan white charcoal. They are Kishu binchotan (Wakayama), Tosa binchotan (Kochi) and Hyuga binchotan (Miyazaki). Tosa binchotan is rated as one of the top three quality products.
