Bincho tan charcoal

The current issue of Gourmet has a small item about bincho tan, a fabulously expensive Japanese charcoal that supposedly burns very hot, very clean, very slow.

It's roughly $10/lb (a price that the Kingsford folks must fantasize about), which is almost certainly too rich for my blood. But I confess to being intrigued -- anyone ever cook with this stuff?
