The charcoal starter pot is a very useful tool enabling you to light your binchotan charcoal ready to be transferred to your Shichirin, Konro or Hida Konro grill. Place the pot over your gas hob or open flame and allow for the charcoal to be flamed until fully lit then place into your grill. Do not overfill the starter pot.
The binchotan will take between 10 - 15 minutes before it is fully glowing so be patient. Once fully lit transfer your binchotan charcoal to your grill and wait for a minimum of 10 minutes for the binchotan to fully build the heat and insulate your grill. If using a bigger grill place additional binchotan on top of the already lit charcoal and wait for it to be fully lit before you start grilling.
