types of flour brands

hi - has anyone compared bobs red mill flour against king arthur flour?
http://www.bobsredmill.com/unbleached-white-flour.html versus http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/king-arthur-unbleached-all-purpose-flour-5-lb ?
i typically use the bobs red mill flour but noticed that after my no knead bread is baked, it has a funny taste....nothing like store bought bread.  Baked probably twenty loaves and they taste poorly  (basic no knead bread, following instructions to the "T").
 
Cheers

Can you describe the taste? Also, how old is the flour?
 
Have you made the no-knead bread with KA Bread Flour yet?

I use bobs all the time for the oat flour and bran flour to make stuff. Never tried the regular flour. King Arthur, however, is the be all end all for flour (store bought at least). I was never a believer and I always just thought that flour was flour (before I really started baking) but got really deep with it. Buy KA.

I use KA flour (bread and whole wheat) for baking sourdough and no knead with no weird tastes.

Back in the day, my preference was always Heckers, but after moving out of the Northeast (and then, later, moving to Honduras) I could never find it again.

sorry for the late reply.  
 
the flavor tastes:
1. bland
2. burnt flavor maybe?  but the inside is not burnt
3.  the crust tastes funny after cooking in the cast iron pot
4.  fresh smell of bread early in the baking process then goes to a bitter smell

I'm thinking chili flakes and jalapenos. That's only because I saw it used elsewhere. Any people know what chilli peppers work best with chicken?

I see a lot of chefs online using cvap cook and hold cabinets. I only have a holding cabinet but it runs on the same technology, eg. the bain-marie at the base. Yes, the cook and hold can brown amongst other things. Browning aside, can I not slow cook meats in my holding cabinet?

I am very new to sous vide and want to learn.

So I found this recipe for sous vide beans in a 1 quart canning jar to finish in 6 hours at 190 F by a trained chef and book author. Works for me since I do not have to watch the beans.By the not this site!!!

So, I measured out 225 grams of beans (as per recipe) and placed in a wide mouth glass canning jar and filled the jar up with water to about 1/2 inch of the jar rim (as per recipe). The authors' picture looked like the bean was Navy beans by size.

I love sandwiches. Soups and sandwiches all day erry day.

Deli meat is mostly processed expensive swollen meat loaded with salt and water. I know I can do better. I already have on roast beef. I was wondering if anyone would like to discuss their own deli meat at home tricks.

I have an Anova and recently did a 138/24hours round roast and sliced it up. The flavor was awesome, the texture i feel like i could have gotten it more tender. I have a real deli slicer, not a home one, and i think i could have brought it down another stop. Will continue to tweak.

I have piece of beef brisket that weighs 1032 grams (2.27 lb) that is 1.27 inches thick. I pulled the meat out of a curing brine today. I am planning on making pastrami/corned beef in a vacuum bag.

The game plan is to season the brisket, bag and sous vide for 12 hours at 185 degrees F (167 C).. I am treating the meat like my wood smoker. After the sous vide cooking, the meat will go into the smoker with hickory wood with fresh seasoning.

What I am asking about is the time and temperature for the sous vide water bath.

Thanks
