comment What kind of cheese does Pizza Hut or Domino's use?
I always use whole milk mozzarella on pizza and have never had a problem with it being greasy. It simply tastes better than skim milk mozzarella.

comment How do I prevent salmon sticking to the BBQ grill?
Who cares if the skin stays stuck to the grill? I always grill salmon skin-side down and only turn it once for a brief final sear on the non-skin side. I expect the skin to stick to the grill. I use spatulas to turn it without breaking it up.

comment Pork roast safe cooking
Why would it be problematic? Crock pot recipes involving large cuts of meat like a pork roast and long cooking times on low are quite common.

comment Cooking smoke safety
A particle mask provides no protection from smoke. You would need a mask with an activated carbon filter or SCBA, neither of which is practical.

comment Rust on unknown metal cooking mold
If it rusted, it's iron. A bit of rust won't harm you (it could even be healthy for you). See the accepted answer to this question cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/24786/…

comment How to bake frozen chicken without setting off fire alarms?
@moopasta Well, that could be part of it. I checked and Pam is made from canola oil, which has a smoke point of 400F, so you might want to get an oven thermometer and check your oven. The built-in thermometers on stoves are often significantly off.

comment How to make a beef or vegetable broth more dense?
@user2485710 Since the title of your question mentions beef broth, I'm a little puzzled. Making beef broth would be done exactly as mascafj suggested.

comment Are countertop blenders with plastic jars dangerous?
Consider the liability a manufacturer would face if this scenario were even possible. I'm confident they go to great lengths to ensure it is not.

comment Can raw soured milk be used to make cheese
I upvoted this question because I expect the answer will be "no way, toss it." But the actual question of using it for cheese, etc. intrigues me.

comment 5 Gallon Drinking Water Container
@talon8 I don't know why the OP doesn't like plastic but I don't either. The history of plastic has been one toxin or another leeching into our food and water. Sure, they remove BPAs from plastic bottles and replace them with BPSs, but no one knows what BPSs do, and I see no reason to think they're the least bit less toxic than BPAs.

comment Is it possible to oversoak wood chips for smoking?
@JeffAxelrod One doesn't need to be the scientific community to read an experiment and make a fairly sound judgement of its results when it comes to something as simple as soaking wood chips. If soaking them accomplished anything, it would increase their weight significantly. It does not. I can't imagine what magical properties you think might otherwise exist.

Read the link in my answer. He proved scientifically that soaking accomplishes almost nothing.

comment Ate steak with the layer of fat kind of undercooked, is it dangerous?
@MischaArefiev Of course not. I get your point, okay? But the fact is that beef cooked rare is safe in all of the developed world.

comment Ate steak with the layer of fat kind of undercooked, is it dangerous?
@MischaArefiev I assumed when the OP said "steak" that he was referring to beef, and that beef came from farmed cattle. Parasites shouldn't be an issue with such meat. If the steak was not beef or was from a wild animal, then you could be right about parasites.

It's safe way before medium or well done.
