It is almost BBQ season!  Here in Japan it is Very Popular!  I must admit that Japanese food is Amazing!  I love the Yakatori BBQ in Japan!  I am always excited for summer and I am always excited for the BBQ season!

Every year my friend Bill hosts some BBQs out in the parking lot behind his bar (The Bridge in Furnao, Hokkaido).   Hanging out with friends, having some food, and having a few drinks is what summer is all about!  He always sets up some big open tents (in case of rain) and sets up a couple of big charcoal BBQs.

While he was setting up before he whipped out a Chimney Starter to get the charcoal ready for the BBQs.  This was the first time that I saw one of these in action.  It was really simple, he just put some newspaper in the bottom, charcoal on top of it, lit it, and waited.  It couldn’t be any simpler.

The BBQs at The Bridge last pretty much all day long, so he has to add charcoal to the BBQs often.  He just gets the charcoal started with his Chimney Starter and when they are hot enough pours them into the BBQs.

If you were wondering what the BBQs in Japan look like, I found the Fire Sense Large Yakatori Charcoal Grill on Amazon too!

These charcoal grills are hand made with clay so they are sturdy and hard to knock over if you’ve had too much alcohol consumption while cooking.  They have adjustable ventilation and a large cooking surface.  This is the style of BBQ I have become accustomed to here in Japan.

The charcoal grills here are a lot different from the big gas BBQs in North America.  I could not imagine cooking a steak on one of these, they just are not designed for something like that.  They are meant for smaller food, preferably on a stick (like Yakatori)!  You still manage to eat a LOT of meat and/or veggies!  I am getting pretty excited for this BBQ season to start!  My mouth is already watering.

If you want to have the natural taste of the charcoal BBQ this summer make sure you get a Weber Rapidfire Chimney Starter, it will save you tons of time and lighter fluid!

The easiest method for lighting any kind of charcoal is to use a chimney starter, which is an upright metal cylinder with a handle on the outside and a wire rack inside. You simply fill the space under the wire rack with a few sheets of wadded-up newspaper or a few paraffin cubes, and then fill the space above the rack with briquettes.
