I've never heard of freekeh, but I'm guessing it's the grain thing and that Wholefoods will have it.
Should I just eyeball amounts or is there some kind of ratio I should aim for?

Freekeh is without question the best, most delicious, most amazing way to consume wheat.
Wholefoods will have it, but why buy it from them? There must be dozens of middle-eastern/oriental food stores were you live. I'd try those. If you have never been in one, you are missing out. Kabatilo brand is your best bet. As long as you keep the Freekeh-water ratio between 1-1 and 1-2 you can't really go wrong. If you want to invest a bit more time: -apply high heat to the shank for a few minutes before it goes into the cooker; broil, grill, char, whatever you prefer. -also saute the chopped onion and crushed garlic in olive oil, before adding them to the pot. Don't over-do it though.

Caveat emptor. Freekeh is not as "neutral" as rice or even quinoa. It has a very specific, vegetal flavor that I don't really care for, while Theroc seems to love it.

That is correct. The flavor: is fire-roasted green wheat. If you ever had roasted vegetables you are getting near the ballpark.
