      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Smoked Brisket Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on a big smokout over Memorial Day weekend with my brother's family. I have ribs down pretty well in the smoker (kissed on the grill right at the end), but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for how to do a brisket. I'm picturing one of the smaller ones (a few lbs). When I first got the smoker, I was pleased with some I did, but then over time, I have grown dissatisfied with my quality.

Thanks in advance for any input.

A few lbs? That's a small brisket....don't mess around with the TRIMMED briskets....those are garbage in my opinion.

Here's how I do mine:

Get the smoke going and temp at 225-250

Rub Leah&Perrins wooster sauce all over the brisket

Coat with your favorite rub

I smoke my briskets with the fat side allow the smoke (which rises from the bottom of my smoker) to hit the meat side and infuse it with a good mesquite flavor! Also....the fat from the top of the brisket will drizzle down through the meat.

Open your smoker as little as possible. Every time you open can add up to 30 more minutes of cooking time. Once your internal temp of the brisket gets to 170 degrees wrap the brisket in aluminum foil. Put it back in the smoker.

Once that baby reaches 195-200 degrees....remove SLICE AGAINST the grain and ENJOY!!!! I could give you a homemade bbq recipe to go along with it if you want. smile

another option is to smoke it at 220 for 10 hours then wrap it in foil. after that put it in a cool and fill with an old blanket or something. leave it there for about six hours. this will keep it very hot and it steams itself. I agree with the cross cut

Good call catfishkid....I almost forgot the most important part!!

Once you have reached 195 interal degrees....remove from the smoker and wrap in your run of the mill bathroom towel. Wrap it tight and place in a sealed cooler. Let sit for 2 hours. THEN......remove from the will still be piping HOT! Slice against the grain and eat away!!!

I generally don't cook brisket to be safe...I try to always refer to temperature of the meat. You can figure for about 1 pound of meat add an hour of cooking.

    • Yup.....those are the ones I use also. Work  just fine. 1 con.....the rolls are 50 ft. long and don't fit into a machine with bag storage, so you have to cut them by hand. But the price is excellent.
    • Great Saturday to build some pork loin jerky. Got round 1 in the smoker round 2 still in the bucket. 
    • At the KMart at Nicollet and Lake in Minneapolis, there is a flock of pigeons that numbers several hundreds. Last Thursday going home from the Super Market I saw a large hawk make a strike at one, but missed.  This was a pretty dark bird overall and much bigger than a Coopers or a Sharpshin and heavy bodied not at all slender.  The attack was a straight line shot from a street light roost on a bird sitting on the shorter parking lot light post.  It seems to me that the attack was launched from a perch about a block away.  The target flew off and there was no chase, the attacker just returned to its previous roost.  I could not get over into the turn lane and go into the parking lot to get a closer look.  The main flock of pigeons didn't actually seem to notice, and there were even some stragglers. Is it possible that goshawks are starting to come into the city in the winter?  From a goshawk I would have expected a chase.  There are certainly plenty of pigeons, and the local falcons have gone south...  I know they are supposed to avoid human concentrations, but then so are loons and they are now common city residents and rest here when passing through in the spring.  We are getting all kinds of wild life in the Cities these days and not all of it goes around just on two legs.
    • I'm soon to be 40, still have never had a REAL super bowl party!   I will sit and hope.   Besides, at 7:11 last Sunday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder.  Might be a hole in my sister and brother in laws garage ceiling.
    • Lol. Dad and I were talking about this after the game last weekend after I had to tell him over and over that I have not been alive when the vikes have ever played a Super Bowl. You old timers can believe in what you want, but us Gen-X kids are saying SKOL!
    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
    •   You didn't try to call me, I would have given you some old oak boards I have laying around and let you use a few of my basic woodworking tools like a jig saw, an oscillating drum sander and a router with a round over bit.    I always tell my son, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.  
    • Ooof, that sucks.  Been there, done that.  Somebody’s still being affected by our day in the soup at temps like that.  Woulda given the world for a few studs in the snowmobile track!
