      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

  2. Sous Vide Turkey

    The salmon I have cooked turns out great, no searing required. Likewise chicken breast. Steaks get seared but the end result of the combination is superior to just grilling or pan frying. At least you aren't making spurious allegations of food safety issues. Howcome you so mad about sous vide? Seems like a silly thing to be so upset about.
  3. HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you do a mighty fine job at it too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. What did you do to your Camper/RV this week?

    Stan! Links in a first post lately haven't been a promising sign, but I'll comment like you are a real person. I think they have their place however I stay hooked up pretty much all the time and use mine in colder water. Looks like your electric heaters for sale their don't operate well with water temps under 67 which I see throughout a good chunk of the year. Thoughts, concerns or second post?
  5. Electric Roaster for Sausage

    we always use gloves to handle the food leaving the smoker
  6. Nua, I like to run and gun causing trouble without having to answer to a higher power! Well but God.
  7. Electric Roaster for Sausage

    I'm sorry but I guess i didn't really pay that much attention to the residue. I usually use a set of tongues to handle them so i really cant say. The one thing i may do different next time is poke holes in the casings. I didn't do that on this batch and i did get a bit of fat build up under the casing. Not horrible but something worth considering on the next go around.

  18. Deer heart

    Me too - I've never considered it before but gutted out my deer this year and the heart was in perfect shape, thought what the heck and threw it in the snowbank while I finished up and found a box of ziplocks in the truck. Followed Hank Shaw's instructions on opening it up to remove the aorta, etc. and then separating into three separate pieces. Marinated for a few hours and grilled it along with the tenderloins, sliced everything up on a plate and fed it to the family without saying anything more that it was two different cuts of venison. The heart was hands down everyone's favorite, after every last piece was gone I informed them we had just polished off the heart - a few sideways looks but now the kids have been asking when we can have deer heart again!
