comment What is the source of smoky flavor for barbecued foods?
Yes, generally deciduous trees are hardwood. However, birch is not a widely used wood as it is sappy and doesn't burn very hot.

comment How do you get bone broth to gel?
What ingredients/bones are you using in your broth? The gelling comes from gelatin and other ingredients you add could possibly hinder that

comment Culinary term for frying in water (without oil)?
I was always under the impression that braising requires a step where you sear the ingredients first, which should require oil and thus would not be a valid description. Is this not correct?

comment Can I freeze dried rice noodles after they've been rehydrated?
I think it depends on the brand/type of rice noodle, and how much you rehydrate them by. Only way to know for sure is to try it and see what happens. If it doesn't work out, it's not a big loss

comment Can I freeze raw liver and meat?
I'm not sure I understand your question. What do you mean by intuition that the fat goes bad? As for the 2nd part of your question, are you referring to the quality of the meat or safety?

comment Can I prepare wasabi powder in advance?
Ah, I see. In that case, have you ever considered buying the tube wasabi? I find that much spicier than the powder stuff and it keeps for longer (since it's in a tube)

comment How can I adapt rice cooker steamed fish to cooking in a pot?
Are you sure that the recipe tells you to put the fish directly on top of the rice in the rice cooker? Most rice cookers have a steaming attachment that is used to steam fish, meats, etc. The only things put directly on top of rice are generally fast cooking vegetables or partially cooked things (eg. chinese sausage), and this can be done antyime after the water in the rice cooker has started boiling. But a rice cooker is insulated, so not sure that you could duplicate this in a pot
