comment What do I need to get started with American style Barbecue?
From what I understand, both the grills I've linked to can be used for smoking and high heat grilling. Maybe I'm wrong. If it makes a difference, I'd rather low and slow than hot and fast.

comment Right baking temperature
Also, the dials on ovens lie. To be sure the oven is at the correct temperature you need an oven thermometer. They aren't expensive but save a lot of wasted meals. My oven is always 30°C cooler than the dial says.

comment How can I create the equivalent of a fresh cake yeast from my sourdough culture?
Cake yeast is living yeast compressed into a cake. Its nothing to do with sponge cakes etc.

comment What is the basic technique for making tea with teabags and a mug?
Personally I put the milk in first, pour on boiling water, then almost immediately remove the teabag, then add sugar. I like my tea weak, milky and sweet. Takes all sorts!

comment What combination of flours can be used as a substitution to a bread flour?
Yes, but SAJ has given a good explanation why whole wheat flour, even of that strength, is not ideal for bread.

comment Why did my French bread neither rise nor bake properly?
If it didn't rise at all, the yeast was definitely dead. Good practice is to add the flour to the bowl, then add the yeast on one side and the salt on the other (if you're using fast-action yeast, which doesn't need proving in a liquid first).

comment Fresh milk curdles when added to hot coffee and tea
Try letting the water cool down for 30 seconds before you pour it in the mug. Also, does your washing liquid happen to be lemon?

@AnishaKaul look for a wheat flour with at least 12% protein (i.e. 12g protein per 100g), and preferably 14%. Protein=gluten.
