      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 .

Beef Brisket

Recommended Posts

Not the pros way but I never have a problem doing it this way.

Actually I will be cooking one all day tomorrow!!

Take the full brisket out of the fridge and place on a tinfoil covered cookie sheet.

Trim most of the fat off the brisket.

This will allow the smoke to enter the meat.

You want some fat left on but not too thick that the smoke can’t enter the meat.

Rub with one bottle of Chef Paul Prudhomme's Meat Magic.

Cover the brisket loosely and let it sit on the counter while you get your grill ready. This will allow some of the chill to come out of the meat before placing it on the grill.

I only use lump charcoal

Keep your grill low and slow with indirect heat about 220 deg

Once your grill is up to temp place the brisket in the center of the grill fat side up (or away from the heat source)

Keep the lid on the grill. Only open it to add charcoal and smoke.

I give mine two good smoking’s (3 if I think it needs it).

The first is after about 20 min in the grill you will see that the meat has started to get warm and will take smoke.

Give it one to one and a half handfuls of wood chips (I prefer hickory, use much less if you use mesquite).

Then just let it sit but keep the temp at about 220 never go much over 220 or under 200.

The meat will look really dry on the outside and it will look like it is not going to come out good but it is OK the salt dries the outside and seals the flavor in.

Do not mop the brisket.

After a few hrs you will see the meat start to render as soon as it does take it off the grill and wrap several layers of tinfoil over it to make sure it is sealed.

Then place it back on the grill for 2 to 3 hours more depending if you want to pull it or slice it.

When you feel it is done (you can test it by pushing on the tinfoil to see how it feels)

If you are just starting out use a meat thermometer

Take it out and put it in a large glass baking dish.

Peel the tinfoil away and keep the juices in the dish.

I will only slice my brisket with a meat slicer.

Once it is sliced pour some of the juices over the meat until it is at your desired juicyness.

Then release the hounds.

You will know if it was a good brisket if it is gone in 10 min or less.

    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
