Thaan Charcoal is natural ultra compressed log charcoal. It is a long burning, clean and natural alternative to commercial charcoal briquettes. It is made sustainably from fruit wood orchard trimmings, which imparts a very mild flavor. It lets your grilled food speak for itself! Thaan Charcoal’s consistent, even heat is easy to cook with, and is great for any style of solid fuel cooking: grilling, barbequing, indirect cooking and particularly good where binchotan charcoal is traditionally used.

Company History

As Chefs and restaurateurs in Portland, Oregon, we began the search for a better charcoal. In 2014, the year we started Thaan Charcoal, the best alternative to mesquite charcoal was binchotan, which burns cleanly for hours at even, high temperatures. We started ordering a type of binchotan called ebisu, only to find out that it was coming from mangrove swamps in Malaysia that were being rapidly depleted by shrimp farming and charcoal production. “Not only was this a logistical nightmare,” the chef recalls: “It was also an environmental disaster.”

At last, we found what would become Thaan (which translates to charcoal in Thai): a charcoal made from rambutan wood, which is a renewable resource and burns almost as hot as the mangrove charcoal. We tried it, and we were like, “Wow, this is great!” It gives a very nice, even radiant heat, and it tends not to flare up when food drops into it. If you stack it like Lincoln Logs, it will burn even longer—up to four or five hours. Our advice for home grillers: Because Thaan is a much more dense charcoal and doesn’t have any accelerants in it, it doesn’t catch fire as quickly, so you need to use a charcoal chimney and fire starters to start it—and it works particularly well in a small hibachi grill. Once the charcoal is lit, it doesn’t snap-crackle-pop at all; it burns for a really long time at relatively high heat.
