      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 .

Grill Potatoes!

Recommended Posts

Recipes like this are fairly common and I'm sure a lot of people have their own, but I think I've found that simplicity is the key. I Made these along side a nice beef fillet for my wife for mom's day. They're too incredible not to share! Not exactly heart healthy, but let's just call them healthy for the soul smile

Andy's Killer Grill Potatoes (Feeds 2-4)

4 good sized russets or 6 good sized red potatoes

6 strips thick cut bacon

1 medium sized onion (whatever color you like)

Garlic Powder

Salt

Pepper

1. Tear 2 sheets of quality aluminum foil (about 18" each) and lay them on top of each other to form a double-layer. Fold the ends over on themselves tightly to attach them. This creates a durable 2-ply sheet.

2. Lay three raw bacon strips down next to each other lengthwise on the foil - the edges of the bacon should be almost touching.

3. Wash and slice half of the potatoes into thin round slices (Leave the peel on) and layer them evenly on top of the bacon.

4. Season the potatoes generously with Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder.

5. Slice up the onion and layer it over the seasoned potatoes.

6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with the other half of the potatoes on top of the onion.

7. Place the last three strips of bacon over the top.

8. Make another matching 2-ply foil sheet, place it directly over the top and fold the edges of the top and bottom up tightly on each together all the way around to form a packet.

9. Place it on a hot grill for 30-40 minutes flipping every ten minutes or so to keep the bacon drippings flowing throughout and to prevent any burning.

10. Unwrap carefully to avoid steam burns and try not drool to much from the wonderful aroma. Spoon on to a plate and enjoy!

I do "foil packet" veggies all summer fresh from the garden. But I like the bacon thing...

I do the same thing, however, I use the canned whole potatoes. They are already cooked and don't take nearly as long to make or prep. I also add mushrooms and occassionally corn to the mix. My secret ingredient though would have to be dill weed!

Ham works as a substitute but you should add some squares of butter to make up for the lake of bacon grease. I usually either mince or slice garlic to put in there and use some seasoned salt.

Feel free to use almost any ingredient. Another key is to really seal the edges of the tin foil so you don't have juices leaking out all over your grill.

We always called those "Hobo Dinners."Throw in some carrots and onions for a complete meal and any other veggie you like.

Potatoes and onions in foil (my heart says no to the bacon!!)are one of the staples of my summer grilling. I just sprinkle with Lowry’s and add a little cooking oil, seal the foil, and cook alongside the chicken or whatever else I'm grilling. I like to cook up a big bunch and then the leftovers get thrown in the frying pan in the morning with eggs!!! Mmmmmm!

I use Olive oil after a buddy suggested it. Mushrooms also help with moisture and I have used the foil pans and then cover them with alum foil. Garlic salt and season all or lowrys best way to do spuds!

I've never tried it with bacon, but I'm going to! I usually add red bell peppers or some roasted chili's to it also.

That sounds good!! My wife loves cheese, I may have to surprise her with this. But I doubt that I'll get the potatoes chopped down to 3/4 inch cubes!!

Can't wait to try this recipe. Tators are always great, haven't seen to many ways to make tators taste bad.

Last time I grilled some I boiled six potatoes with the skin on for about 6 minutes (you still want them hard in the center)

I slice them the long way and about 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick.

I make a seasoning with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Sprinkle the tators with the sasoning and put on the grill. Then brush on the butter. Flip every five minutes are so until done (takes about 20 minutes). Pretty tastey.

I grill potatoes in foil a lot the thinner sliced the better. The salad shooter works great for this. Also a good sub for bacon is to slice up a ring of deer sausage and that in.

      We are a club that has a ton of fun and we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
    •   I doubt luck had much to do with it sir. 
    • I saw on a show about a guy living on a point on a lake that had many houses on poles in the water about 20ft from shore. Maybe about 3ft above the water. All the houses were full, It was cool to watch. Easier to maintain at that height, waist deep in water. 
    • I know folks who clean out the martin house's every year.....
    • I rinsed them and put them out whole.
    • Well, fellas,  lemme tell ya:  I've had one terrific life and done more things than you'd probably believe.  In fact I told my wife one evening shortly after we had moved to the lower 48, "I think you had best cool it with some of your recollections of our time and adventures in the North because I get the feeling most people won't believe you anyway. And to this day we don't shoot off our mouth too much just for that reason. EVERYBODY should be as lucky as I have been!!  
    • Sounds like there will be 17 guns offered!! Come  on the odds of winning a gun are great
    • I will go to small mom and pop bait shops I know pay more for some jugs but I love the service 
    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
