Where to buy binchotan white charcoal?

Where to buy Binchotan white charcoal in Hanoi is an issue of concern to clean charcoal dealers, Japanese barbecue restaurants, Korean hot pot restaurants, and Vietnamese restaurants. Than Viet realizes that distinguishing good white coal from poor quality white coal is a difficult problem for customers.

In addition to the price factor, this is also an issue to consider when choosing where to buy binchotan white charcoal and which supplier. However, the price will follow the market price, depending on the volume of goods imported and the distance of the restaurant to the supplier’s warehouse.

One problem is that most of us want to buy cheap but high quality products. This is often paradoxical. In this article, THAN VIET will analyze some important issues, detailed information and concepts about binchotan white charcoal, so that you can be clear and make the best choice.

Notes when using white charcoal:

  • All types of binchotan white charcoal do not produce smoke when lit. So if it is called white charcoal or white charcoal, then certainly when kindling and burning white charcoal, it will not produce smoke. This will help you easily distinguish it from other types of coal. Smoke produced during BBQ grilling is due to the fat in animal meat melting under the effect of high temperature. Fat falls onto burning coals and will produce smoke. If the fat burns into a flame, the smoke will disappear. This is why modern grills need a separate tray to drain fat from meat when grilling.
  • In addition, priming white coal will be more difficult than other types of coal such as sawdust coal, black coal, and pressed coal. Because white charcoal is very hard and strong.
  • Finished white coal has many holes in its structure. So it is easy to absorb moisture, causing splashes and crackling when grouped. This explains why. If it is white charcoal, it must be tightly wrapped in a PE plastic bag.
  • Depending on the white coal burning technique, the structure of the white coal burning furnace, and the type of white coal burning wood, different types of binchotan white coal will be created.


Before answering the question of  where to buy BINCHOTAN white coal , let’s learn more about white coal.

White charcoal is binchotan charcoal  produced from fresh firewood materials such as twisted eucalyptus, longan lychee, coffee tree, mangrove tree… The material is heated in oxygen-deficient conditions, at high temperatures above 1100 degrees Celsius, then forced cooling by coating with powder mixture. (including soil, sand and ash).

The reason it is called white charcoal is because the outer layer of the charcoal after cooling has a layer of white powder, like chalk. That is coal ash, the result of the carbon burning of the outer layer of the coal bar when covered with a mixture of soil powder, sand and ash.

Nowadays, manufacturers can use iron barrels to ferment white coal, and at the same time do forced cooling.

As for the name “binchotan”, the original and transliterated Japanese is: 備長炭 – Binchōtan. Meaning charcoal. The Japanese have a very unique and long-standing technology for making white charcoal. You can watch videos on Youtube with the keyword: “Japanese Binchotan production technology”.

The confusion between  Binchotan white charcoal  and  Ogatan charcoal  is “sawdust pressed charcoal, coconut shell charcoal”.

Distinguishing types of white coal:

Characteristics that can distinguish white charcoal include:

  • Appearance, looking at the cross-section of white charcoal: single cracks from the center are binchotan litchi longan white charcoal; No fine cracks are white charcoal from healthy trees (also known as maitiew) or white charcoal from mangrove trees. However, mangrove white charcoal is also cracked a lot. Eucalyptus white charcoal is also a type that rarely cracks
  • The sound of tapping two white charcoal sticks together
  • Cross-sectional surface of binchotan white charcoal bar when broken. Brightness and shine, the shinier, the more silvery in color… the higher the quality. That is, the higher the carbon content in coal, the lower the ash level, and the higher the calorific value emitted when burned.
