How to choose the right charcoal for grilling

Selecting the right charcoal for grilling is crucial for achieving optimal results. Here are some tips to help you choose the most suitable charcoal:

CHARCOAL TYPE
  • Decide between lump charcoal and briquettes. Lump charcoal burns hotter and faster, giving food a smoky flavor. Briquettes provide consistent heat and longer burn time.
  • For indoor use, choose premium no-smoke options like BINCHOTAN or SAWDUST.
  • For outdoor grilling, softwood or hardwood charcoal are ideal.
CHARCOAL QUALITY
  • Check for uniformity in size and quality to ensure even burning and consistent heat distribution.
  • Quality charcoal also guarantees high carbon content but minimal ash production, and a clean, natural flavor in your grilled dishes.
SIZE AND SHAPE
  • Large chunks of charcoal are ideal for high-heat grilling and searing
  • Small pieces are suitable for longer, slower cooking sessions
FLAVOR
  • Select BINCHOTAN and SAWDUST to ensure an original taste of dishes, juicy inside and crispy outside.
  • You can add smoky flavor to your dishes from natural wood charcoal including MANGROVE, LONGAN, KHAYA and COFFEE
COST
  • While premium charcoal brands may offer superior quality, more affordable options can still deliver satisfactory results for casual grilling sessions.
  • Especially, Vinachaki‚Äôs SAWDUST CHARCOAL is a perfect choice if you want to find a charcoal type with exceptional quality and reasonable price
Brand reputation
  • Opt for sellers that have more than 5 year-experience of supply charcoal with consistent large quantities
  • Consider whether the brand is available on the Internet or social media such as website, Facebook and Instagram
