Yakiniku (焼き肉 or 焼肉) commonly refers to a Japanese style of cooking bite-sized meat and vegetables on gridirons or griddles over flame of wood charcoals carbonized by dry distillation (sumibi, 炭火). source : wikipedia.org
The cooking stove commonly used in Japan for yakiniku is called a shichirin (七輪 しちりん), literally means “7 wheels”. I bought one back from Japan during my trip to Kansai last month. I bought some Saga wagyu beef and used the shichirin for a maoden course of yakiniku at home a few days ago. The cooking ability of a charcoal grill and the aroma of charcoal together with wagyu beef is combination too exquisite to be described in words.
