comment Do I have to peel Red Potatoes before baking them?
FYI, SIGNIFICANT solanine production also requires potatoes to be stored in direct sunlight. Sunlight exposure speeds up the production. They'll gain a green hue as it develops.

comment If a recipe doesn't specify the type of vinegar, is there a standard type implied?
Actually, at least in the US, most vinegars you purchase are standardized between 4-7% acidity no matter the type of vinegar. The only time you'll run into higher acidities is if you or someone you know produces it on their own.

comment What is the secret of making a really juicy burger?
I pretty strongly disagree. A meatloaf has a much larger proportion of bread. A panade is a very good method of retaining moisture in burgers, and is suggested quite frequently by ATK/Cook's Illustrated. I use the method myself. It's also the only decent way I've found to make a passable turkey burger. Do this with ground chuck and you can have a nice moist burger up to and including well done.

Thank you! Any advice on a double crust vs a single crust? Does one freeze better than the other?

comment Are there special considerations for making a pie with the express intention of freezing?
First, thanks for the heads up about new/old pyrex. Both of our pie dishes are old pyrex so I shoud be safe. Any thoughts on using a double crust (bottom and top crust) vs using a single crust?

comment Smoking a whole duck - when to remove from heat?
I'm fine for cutting up the bird - it will be getting shredded afterwards for tacos anyways (outside of one breast for a nice presentation) :)

Is there any option to put a baffle on the bird? Similar to the shield Alton Brown suggested using when he roasts turkey?
