      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 .

Smokers???

Recommended Posts

So my father's day present was a charcoal smoker from Maynard's. My wife wasn't sure if she should get that or the gas one. I looked today at the store and I am not sure.

I do already have one similar to the Brinkman ones that is gas. I have done many turkey's, ribs, sausage and other things. The things I don't like is that it is hard to keep it at a low temp and doesn't have much room with only two 12" round racks. I would really like an old fashioned fridge conversion but I am sure my neighbor would complain if I had that sitting in the backyard.

Wondering if the present would be much better than what I already have, should I trade for the gas version, or should I keep what I have and wait for something better? Thanks in advance for all your thoughts.

Do the Fridge conversion, mine (I have two) are on wheels so they stay in the garage and only come out when I smoke. All the neighbors come running when I smoke meat. Mine holds about 25 pounds of meat (venison sausage sticks, turkeys, you name it).

Also that's the downside of gas getting a low temp, but with my fridge smokers I can't use them past November because I can't get the temp high enough. So the fridge would be a great option for the summer. Charcoal is a pain, sold mine at a garage sale

Get an electric smoker......set the temp and walk away year round.So well insulated snow won't melt off the top when it is 200 degrees inside.
