    Knifewear Ogatan Charcoal


    Ogatan Charcoal is natural, Vietnamese-style log charcoal from your friends at Knifewear. It is made sustainably from orchard-grown fruitwood offcuts. Ogatan Charcoal delivers a consistent, even heat, that is easy to cook with, and imparts a mild flavour on your BBQ'ed food.

    Knifewear's Ogatan Charcoal is a great alternative to Japanese binchotan charcoal, or an excellent way to get the most from your Binchotan. Light a few pieces of Knifewear charcoal, then use them to light your binchotan more easily. If you're cooking for a large group, cut your binchotan 50/50 with Ogatan to get the best bang for your buck!

    • Carbon Content: 90%
    • Burn Time: 2-3 hours
    • No flame and very little smoke.
    • Compressed sawdust from fruitwood (trim and dead wood from orchards).
    • Comes in a 5.5lb / 2.5kg box.
    • Made in Vietnam.


    • Place your binchotan on a bed of already lit softer charcoal like the ogatan or even lump charcoal if you have it.
    • Make sure that your coal is neatly placed in the chimney starter, all running in the same direction, and place the whole thing on a propane burner for 15 to 20 minutes.
    • Use a hair dryer, fan, or shop-vac to blow air on the coals like a blacksmith’s bellows.

    Due to international shipping regulations, we cannot send charcoal to customers outside of Canada. We apologize for the inconvenience.
