      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!!!

Alton Brown recipe and man it is gggggoooddd Eats

Salt crusted Tenderloin

5 cups all-purpose flour

3 cups kosher salt

3 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper

5 egg whites

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup chopped fresh herbs (parsley, thyme, and/or sage)

1 (6 to 7-pound) whole beef tenderloin, trimmed

1 tablespoon olive oil


Place the flour, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites and water and add to the dry ingredients along with 2 tablespoons of the herbs. Combine with a potato masher until the mixture begins to come together. Then knead with your hands for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a large zip-top bag, seal, and let stand at room temperature for 4 hours, or up to 24 hours.

Transfer dough to a floured surface and roll out to 3/16-inch thickness, approximately a 24 by 18-inch rectangle. Trim away extra dough, if necessary. Sprinkle the remaining herbs on the center section of the dough and gently press down.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In order to achieve uniform cooking, fold over slender tail end of tenderloin and tie with kitchen twine. Set a large electric griddle at its highest setting; brush the tenderloin with the olive oil and sear on all sides until well browned, approximately 10 minutes. Rest the meat for at least 5 minutes or until it is cool to the touch so as not to melt the dough.

Place the tenderloin in the center of the dough. Fold top part of dough over, flipping back about 1-inch of dough onto itself. Repeat with the bottom half of the dough. Press together the 2 flaps of dough and seal. Make sure the dough is not too tight around the tenderloin. At the ends of the tenderloin, press together dough to form a seal and cut away any excess. Transfer to a sheet pan, place in the oven and roast to an internal temperature of 125 degrees F, approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. The tenderloin will continue to cook 10 to 15 degrees more. Cut salt crust at 1 end and extract meat by pulling out of dough tube. Slice and serve immediately.

Great recipe croixflats, thanks for sharing!

You can also keep it simple by trimming it up, seperating the head and just grilling it whole to temp with your prefferred seasoning and cutting medallions out of it. With tenderloin the meat usually takes care of itself in terms of not needing to go too overboard on it.

I hope I'm not too late. You won't regret making a Philly cheese steak out of it with this SIMPLE RECIPE.

Items needed

1. Tenderloin

2. pablano peppers (2-3)

3. onion

4. provolone cheese (slices)

5. olive oil

6. sea salt

7. pepper (preferably course ground or pepper grinder)

8. garlic

9. parsley

10. butter

11. french bread or subs (2-3 depending on how big the tenderloin is)

12. tinfoil

13. Butcher string

first grill the peppers and onions.(Or saute) Slice the onions so they are thick enough for skewers and put 2 in each slice so you can rotate them on the grill. Oil the onions first and add salt and pepper. Grill the onions until desired and the peppers until the flesh can be removed. PUT TINFOIL UNDER SKEWERS WHEN GRILLING.

second prepare tenderloin by trimming off excess fat then slice in half MAKING SURE NOT TO CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH. You need to fold it back together. Once in half salt using sea salt and pepper to your liking.

third prepare the peppers by skinning them and slicing them length wise.

fourth place provolone on one side of the tenderloin then add onions and peppers on top of that. Now fold tenderloin back together and tie with butcher string. Try to get all ingredients inside of the tie. Once tied brush with olive oil and add sea salt and pepper. Throw on the grill until around 160 degrees.

fifth chop parsley and mince garlic. Mix with butter and brush on your bread. Put on grill or place in broiler until brown. Same as you would do with garlic bread.

Once Philly is done let sit for 10 minutes. Cut off butcher string and slice finely with carving knife or electric knife. Place the Philly on serving tray and the bread on another so you can make your own. ENJOY

I cook them whole all the time and I usually do it at work were we will do 3 or 4 tied together. With good loin you don't need much seasoning like cheffry said. I use montreal steak seasoning and garlic-garlic.




This was 3 tied together about 12 lbs I think. The trick to this is to tie them together so the whole thing is the roughly the same dia.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
